Bald Head Island Limited Mourns George P. Mitchell
It is with great
sadness that Bald Head Island Limited, LLC, announces the passing of George P.
Mitchell, who died on Friday, July 26, 2013, in Galveston, Texas, at the age of 94.
Father to Bald
Head Island developers Mark and Kent Mitchell, George Mitchell was a visionary
businessman, generous philanthropist, and loving patriarch. Up until the last
few years, when his health went into decline and travel became difficult, he
and his late wife Cynthia Woods Mitchell visited Bald Head Island regularly,
celebrating every Easter here with family. While Mr. Mitchell was not involved
in the island’s day-to-day operations, his guiding hand, unwavering support,
and presence on Bald Head Island Limited, LLC’s board of directors cannot be overstated.
One of Mr. Mitchell’s
lasting legacies is leaving the island community in good stead by laying plans
to ensure the continuation of Bald Head Island Limited, LLC’s operations and
services long after his passing. The company’s business will continue on as
usual, but not without all employees pausing to reflect and remember a man
whose accomplishments and generosity knew no bounds.
