Mitcheal T. Prescott, 55

Mitcheal Todd "Mitch" Prescott, beloved husband, father, and friend, broke the bonds of cancer and celebrated his continuation day on March 15, at his home in Red Wing. He was 55 years old.

Mitch was born on Nov. 30, 1961, in Broken Bow, Neb. He was the youngest son of Virgil and Jane (Ash) Prescott. The Prescott family later moved from Broken Bow to Kenesaw, Neb., where Mitch attended school. Mitch was more interested in nature, fishing, and hunting than school, and frequented many fishing holes in rural Nebraska. He had a zest for life and loved to have fun. A bit of a daredevil, he worked the high towers as a transmission lineman in New York, and Massachusetts. It was during this time that he met his best friend and soul mate, Deb. They were married on April 1, 1990, at Hastings, Neb. To this union two sons were born, Mitcheal, and Evan. The family started out in Kenesaw and later moved their family, as well as an entire two-story house, to Glenvil, Neb. Here they lived for a few years until moving to Red Wing, Minn. in 1998. Mitch, Deb, Mitcheal, and Evan loved the river and bluffs, spending lots of time hiking, fishing, and camping. Mitch could "catch fish in the desert" was a comment made many times. Mitch was active in Troop 31 Boy Scouts, and went on many of the trips and made some good friends during this time. Mitch was a gifted singer and he loved music. He was a self-taught guitarist and played at open mics, and once at the Red Wing Farmer's Market. He was a kind and patient father not only to Mitcheal and Evan, but to many of their friends, as well. He had a great sense of humor and made sure to make Deb and others laugh every day. His greatest love and accomplishment was his family, and there was no place he would rather be. Mitch was always a worker and rarely missed a day. He worked for Plaas Mechanical of Red Wing and Later for ConAgra Foods/Treehouse Foods in Lakeville, Minn., as an industrial electrician. Blessed with many talents, luck, and, as he would often say: "lots of useless knowledge", he was a light to all who had the privilege of knowing him.

Mitch is survived by his best friend and "Honey", Deb (Parsons) Prescott and sons, Mitcheal (Maria Thalacker) Prescott, and Evan (Alexas Brunkow) Prescott, and a little granddaughter not yet named, coming June 2017; father, Virgil Prescott of Kenesaw, Neb.; mothers-in-law, Dian Parsons of McCook, Neb., and Marcy Parsons of Vancouver, Wash.; sister, Lucinda (Richard) Rodriguez of West Bountiful, Utah; brother, Scott (Deb) Prescott of Minden, Neb., and sister Becky (Jerry) Franks of Grand Island, Neb. He is also survived by aunts, uncles, loving in-laws, nieces, nephews, cousins and many friends.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Eva "Jane" Ash; father-in law, Jim Parsons; maternal grandparents, paternal grandparents, aunts, and uncles.
