GREENVILLE - Clarence "Mitchell" Gunn, 62, of Greenville, KY died peacefully surrounded by his loved ones at Vanderbilt Medical Center on November 19, 2018. He was Born on April 22, 1956 in Muhlenberg County and was a member and deacon of Mt. Pisgah Baptist Church. Mitchell graduated from Muhlenberg Central High School in 1974 and earned his associates degree from Madisonville Community College. He was the Region 5 Vice President for Landstar, but he started from humble beginnings. He began his life as a coal miner for 20 years and took pleasure in hard work and dedication. He eventually was laid off from the mines where he began working through the ranks at Landstar earning awards, special recognition, and the respect of so many of his colleagues. To know him was to love him. He told everyone that he met that "Life is good." His positivity was infectious and he was always ready to give a thumbs up.

Mitchell was an avid sports fan. He loved the UK Wildcats and the Chicago Cubs. He could spend hours watching and talking about his favorite teams. He finally was able to see the Cubs win a World Series title in 2016 and it was one of his happiest moments. He attended many different ball games over the years and supported Muhlenberg County's local teams. He loved to play golf in his spare time and derived great pleasure from working in his yard.

Mitchell's greatest joy in life was his family. He passionately loved his wife of 42 years, Alice Wilcox Gunn, his 2 beautiful daughters, and his greatest pride of all was his 4 grandchildren. He was the best Poppy and would shower them with love and affection. From watching his only grandson, Wes, play sports or taking him to NASCAR races to watching his oldest granddaughter, Payton, act in her plays, nothing gave him more joy than to see them do what they loved to do. Ali Beth was his "Love Bug" and Libby Rose was his "Cottontop" and they both made him laugh uncontrollably. Mitchell took his family each year on vacation and took immense pride in the fact he could provide such a wonderful time to the people he loved most on this Earth. His entire world revolved around his family. Mitchell was the best husband, father, and Poppy that anyone could ask for. He encouraged his daughters from an early age to "Follow your dreams and enjoy the ride."

Mitchell was preceded in death by Gladys and John Gunn, brothers Danny, David, and Jimmy Gunn, sister Betty Geary, his step-father Robert Taylor, and his Mother-in-Law, Elizabeth "Lib" Wilcox.

Mitchell is survived by his loving and devoted wife, Alice, his daughters Brooke (Mike) Morrison and Kendall (Evan) Armstrong, his grandchildren Payton Brooke Armstrong, Wesley Kenneth Morrison, Ali Elizabeth Morrison, and Libby Rose Armstrong, his mother Kay Taylor, his beloved Father-in-Law Wesley Wilcox, his brothers Buddy (Esther) Gunn, Johnny (Joyce) Gunn, Kenny (Diane) Gunn, Darrell "Bubby" Morris, his sisters Judy(Craig) Fleming, Dollie (Mitch) Jacobson, Cindi (Jose) Maldanado, his Brother-in-Law, Wayne Wilcox, and many nieces and nephews.

Funeral services will be Sunday, November 25, 2018, at 1:00PM at Tucker Funeral Home in Central City with Rev. Bill Bursztynski officiating. Burial will follow at Mt. Pisgah Cemetery. Visitation will be Saturday after 5:00PM at the funeral home. Online condolences may be made at www.tuckerfuneralhomes.com.
