Mr. Mitchum was born December 15, 1959, in Moncks Corner, SC, a son of James E. Mitchum, Sr., and Kay Schwartz Mitchum. He was a licensed helicopter and airplane pilot, and he also volunteered with the Berkeley County Rescue Squad. He loved all things adventurous — flying his helicopters and planes, boating, fishing, hiking, riding motorcycles, and enjoyed sharing those experiences with his relatives and friends. It was his nature to take others along to enjoy the rare scenery from all sorts of places - on his boat, in the air, over the water, on the open road. He was an amazing man who brought much joy to others.
Surviving are, his wife, Sandra Nobles Mitchum; a daughter, Brooke Hensley and her husband, Derek, of St. Stephen; a son, Brock Mitchum of St. Stephen; a sister, Lynn Mixon and her husband, Gerald, of Bethera; his father-in-law and mother-in-law, Buddy and Mary Nobles of St. Stephen; and four grandchildren, Logan Mitchum, Mason Mitchum, Kaylee Mitchum, and Makaylyn Hensley.
