    Bob was one of a kind. He was a caring and selfish man who loved his community. Bob exemplified true kindness and my hope is that those who knew him continue to spread the kind of love, compassion and heart that he did every day. Our whole family will miss him very much.

      I first met the Mitchells when Cindy joined Greater Danbury Mothers of Multiples Support Group a year or two after I did. Fast forward, I helped with Discovery Science Workshops. A Saturday morning with K-5 students offering STEAM lessons. Bob presented a concentrated morning of architectural concepts. He wrangled 20 pre-adolescents for 2 hours, and, they loved it! He will be missed.

        Let’s not forget his work on town building committees! He had to wrangle my father-in-law often.
