Mitchell James Stanfield, 60

Mitchell James Stanfield, age 60, passed away at his residence on Nov. 25.

Mitchell was born on Sept. 18, 1953, in Denver, Colo., the son of James and Jackie Stanfield.

Mitchell was a very talented and unique individual; truly one of a kind. By all definitions he was a renaissance man. While he had a career in business, he was a very talented artist, musician, and writer. His love of life made him a joy to be around. Children were immediately drawn to him, because he possessed many “childlike” qualities himself. He always told everyone that he “didn’t want to grow up”. He enjoyed fishing and was an avid Denver Broncos fan. For the past twelve years, Mitchell resided in Wells, Vt.

Survivors are his companion, Lisa Martelle of Wells, a son James Stanfield of Denver, Colo., Lisa’s daughters, Ashley and Megan and grandchildren Isaiah and Kali.

A private service will be held locally and he will be interred at Fort Logan in Colorado.

Local arrangements are under the direction of the Robert M King Funeral Home, 23 Church St., Granville, N.Y.
