Public Memorial Services for a Texas Legend: George P. Mitchell

mitchell-at-am-236x300A philanthropist, entrepreneur, and innovator of immeasurable proportions, Mr. George P. Mitchell died of natural causes on Friday, July 26, at his residence in the Tremont hotel, in Galveston.

Mr. Mitchell was, among many things, a boosting benefactor of Texas & M, creator of The Woodlands, and financial supporter behind preservation of natural wildlife and restoration of historic buildings in Galveston.  He also revived Galveston’s wildly popular annual Mardi Gras celebration.  Mr. Mitchell’s influence stretched globally with his development of fracking shale and the energy revolution it has spawnedby tapping previously unreachable sources of trapped natural resources.

Having influenced the lives of so many people, it is only appropriate that the celebration of Mitchell’s life be a community event. Mitchell’s memorial services will be open to the public. Two will be in Galveston: at Trinity Episcopal Church at 5:30 p.m. Aug. 6, followed by a celebration at 7 p.m. at Saengerfest Park, 2302 Strand. A third will be at 7:30 p.m., Aug. 8 at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in The Woodlands.
