Mitchell Robinson, 22, passed away on July 1, 2012. He was born on November 20, 1989 to Barbie Upton and Joseph Robinson in Ogden, Utah. Mitch attended Clearfield High School. He was raised in the Sunset/Clinton area where he started football at the age of 7. He played baseball and basketball but his favorite was football and wrestling. He played until being diagnosed with SMA at the age of 16. He then focused mostly on his love for riding. He had amazing strength and spirit. Nothing could or would stop him from doing what he needed to or wanted to do. He lived life to the fullest sporting his tattoo that said “Live every day as if it were your last.”Mitch was very close to his brothers and sister. His recent love of his life was his big pit bull MaMa. They went everywhere together. He absolutely adored his little nephew Denver and was the best, funnest Uncle Ever! He had lots of close family and friends and anyone lucky enough to be part of his life knew he would be there with love, friendship, fun and anything anyone needed. Mitch will be greatly missed. We all love him so much. He will never be forgotten and we will still have him with us every minute of every day. Mitch was known for his handsome looks, great style and most of all, amazing smile.

Rest in Peace, sweet boy!



My sincere condolences and prayers go out to Mitch's family. He is a very handsome boy who many loved and admired. I know things like this do not make sense as I just lost my Mother last month suddenly and a very good friend. But know this, GOD needed this young man and he is serving a better purpose. I can only imagine the loss you are feeling and this breaks my heart as a mother and a friend. God Bless!

My heart goes to all of mitch's family and friends.. it was an unexpected loss to me, and many others but he will be forever loved and missed and not one day forgotten. Mitch had been my childhood friend ever since he stepped foot in the little old sunset elementary school. I still remember talking to him that first day and his sweetness made u forget everything bad. Although I was unable to keep up communication with him especially after I left the Clinton utah area, he will always be the one person that meant a lot to me, as well as others. Mitch was an amazing person with so many talents.. his personality, his smile his great looks made ur heart warm. its still so unreal to me but he is in a place enjoying his Paradise. I will never forget you Mitch Robinson. My condolences goes out to all his family and friends. He is looking down and watching all of you. <3

What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch, we may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget. I am deeply saddened by your loss. I will cherish the memories of the times we spent together. May the peace which comes from the memories of love shared comfort you now and in the days ahead.Rest In Paradise Citchell!Love,Aunt Jennye
