Evers says,

“Kathy and I are saddened by this loss and our hearts are with Mitchell’s wife, his three sons, and the entire Appleton Fire Department, and the Fox River Valley community.  

Mitchell dedicated his life and career to protecting the members of his community and leaves behind an honorable legacy of service to his department and his state and he will be missed.”
