Who was Mitch Terrell?
Mitch Terrellwas a well-known name in the Texas rodeo community. He was a cowboy and T-N-T Rodeo Company owner in Anson, Texas. He was. His company supplied horses, bulls, and all animals for the rodeo competitions. He mentored many young cowboys. He was a well-respected and trusted member of the rodeo community.
He was a cowboy and lived his life following his heart, and his heart was in the rodeo. The thrill of mounting a wild horse did not scare him. He spent his life near animals and loved them in their wild, untamed nature. He was a true cowboy at heart.
Beneath all the rowdy cowboy exterior, he had a heart of gold. The blood of the South ran deep into his veins. He was accustomed to southern hospitality and culture. He was a true son of the South. His kind nature earned him the trust and respect of his community. He inspired many to follow their heart and pursue their passion in riding wild beasts. Young cowboys looked up to him and valued his advice.
His family meant the world to him. He loved his family so much, and they loved him. He loved them with all of his heart even when time changed their relationship. He was the home that held everyone together and made them feel safe. His family is forever deprived of his love and kindness.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends.
“The community loved and respected him. They have come forward with condolences and prayers for the family. Many had worked with him, and many had thrived in his mentorship. They now mourn for their beloved cowboy.”
