Mitchell memorial service set for Thursday

A memorial service for former Spurs forward Mike Mitchell is scheduled from 6-8 p.m. Thursday at the Antioch Sports Complex and Community Center, 1001 N. Walters.

Pat Casey, a spokeswoman for the Antioch Baptist Church, said the public is invited to hear testimonials from some of Mitchell’s friends and former teammates.

Casey said a funeral service is scheduled for 11 a.m. Friday at the Antioch church, also at 1001 N. Walters.

Mitchell, one of the team’s leading scorers in the 1980s, died last Thursday after a two-year battle with cancer. He was 55.
