"This has been the hardest day of the year for the past 2 years! I still can’t believe you’re not just a phone call away.

Only God in heaven knows just how much I miss you bro! It broke my heart the dayGod called you home.

I’ll never forget all the random conversations we had, we could sit and talk for hours on end about nothing but it meant everything to us.

I’ve been so lost without you T, they better be looking after you in heaven or they’ll face my wrath!

Love you always my brother, rest well till we see each other again


This tribute was added by MARIA MITCHELL on 30th September 2017


"I know you're looking down from Heaven, beaming with pride when you see me. I know you're constantly tugging on Jesus's arm like "look, look at your beautiful daughter, isn't she amazing!

I wouldn't be the woman I am today without having met you. I wouldn't be the woman I am today if I didn't marry you. I wouldn't know what I truly deserve as a Queen if I didn't marry A King like you. I truly know my worth because you taught me. Through you, I understood Gods love for me. It took your graduation into Heaven to truly understand Gods heart as a Father towards me. I am so honoured that out of all the virtuous queens in the world, you chose me to literally spend the rest of your life with.

Tyrone, I will forever keep pushing forward and complete my race. How can I give up when you never gave up?! I will forever open my heart to love inspite of the possibility of being hurt. I will be patient and forgive quickly. I will continue to see hopes glint in the darkest of night skies. I will forever trust our Fathers ultimate plan for my life- one that including your heart being knitted with mine. Oh how I look forward to seeing your mesmerising smile, hearing that thunderous laugh of yours and seeing your eyes light up once again.

As I run towards you on pavements of gold, the first words I will utter are "Thank you". Thank you for praying for me during every part of our journey as Maria Olupeka and Tyrone Mitchell and as The Mitchell's. Thank you for praying for me now. Thank you for never judging me as I shared my darkest failings with you. Thank you for being my safe place when I was broken. Never in my mind did I ever expect to be writing this; it feels like you left a life time ago yet at the same time feels like it happened just the other day.... it's such a surreal feeling and vivid reality in a world that just goes on.

Your death, the countless tears I've cried and the brokenness I've experienced will never ever change my belief and trust in our Father. It has been the hardest two years of my life. Every part of my being has been tested yet I still press forward. I will continue to do so with the utmost grace, compassion, resilience and with a heart that boldly dares to love another again.

With every single thing I’ve been through, I am well equipped to run through a troop and leap over any wall! You actually married a warrior! Thank you for being part of my destiny and my legacy.

As you already know, your life and your death were not in vain. You left a powerful legacy; one your family, friends, love ones and even strangers feel, see and hear every single day.

I am doing really well and actually excited about my future. YES!!! Just as I boldly declared at the hospital on the 30th September 2015, in front of our friends, family and Pastors- our God is still and will always remain Faithful!!! This is now my ‘Life’s Declaration’!

Your light will always shine through the hearts of mine and others. We will always love you Tyrone Anthony Ian Mitchell.... until we meet again""

"I knew Tyrone from Church and I had the pleasure to be invited to his wedding. It was a day full of love. Love was shared on that day, not only with his wife, but also evident and visible in the love and affection he'd shown to all his guests.     Tyrone was a true gentlemen, a man of God for sure and someone who made you feel comfortable around him. Seeing all the testimonies people have shared about Tyrone's life leads me to think it may take years for someone to achieve what he did. But Tyrone did it naturally and he did not fake it. I can only salute you. Rest in peace Tyrone. Your legacy will live forever. I also send all my love to his beautiful wife Maria ... xxxx"

"What can I say, the largest smile I have ever seen and a permanently joyful guy. So much quality in his tae kwon do but I was so happy when I realised Tyrone had given himself to Christ because that same consistency and energy that I saw in his martial arts I saw a lot greater in his life for Christ. It is so very sad to have seen him go but the phrase "He's in a better place now" could not have been more appropriate.

This was a truly wonderful guy and I would testify to this even if he was still with us.

Enjoy the presence of God bro, you deserve it, by His grace I will see you soon!"

"Tyrone a man that I always respected.
I remember you leading prayer with the men upstairs, and just always being a listening ear, with wisdom keys, in your conversations. You were indeed a Man of God, a brother that kept it real, your promotion to heaven still shocks me but I rest knowing that your in a better place. "Tyrone on the Throne",My brother rest in peace."

This tribute was added by Ren Davis on 9th October 2015

"Tyrone, we are missing you greatly!

I will never forget the conversations we've had and the brotherly advice you always had for me. I will never forget the silly banter and that mischievous laugh and big smile! I will never forget the big hugs that you gave out!
Most of all, I will never forget the love and the passion you had for Christ and how that love was displayed unconditionally to Maria. I know how important it was to you that she was taken care of, and I promise to continue to do so!

Love you bro! See you in heaven! xx"

"Tyrone, I remember you as such a sweet and genuine person. I remember our eternal debates on every subject we did not agree on lol! You are with the Lord now and I know I will see you again."

This tribute was added by Tanya Nelson on 8th October 2015

"So shocked and saddened to come to know about your passing, but celebrate the fact that you have transitioned into and are experiencing a greater magnitude of life. To which we say, you have definitely obtained the victory!

Through Maria and other lives you have touched, you will live on and never be forgotten. Your presence physically was hard to miss! So we are sure that your presence spiritually will not go unoticed.

One piece of advice you gave to Stephen that we will never forget is: if you are stuck in life, go back and do the last thing God told you to do.

Live on Tyrone!"

This tribute was added by Esther Roach on 8th October 2015

"Tyrone, on telling my son of your passing, he was saddened to hear of it. Even more so when he knew that i would be writing a few words here to share. He said "thank you for the time that you shared with us and memories of you would be treasured. We will miss you".
Tyrone, you made an impression even on the young ones. Thank you for being you! We miss you, but know that one day we will all get to meet again! Rest in peace!"

"To my beautiful nephew - you lit up this world with your love, humour, warmth, kindness... I could go on. You will be missed but never forgotten. You're at peace now and for that we have to be thankful even though it hurts us that you are gone. Loving you forever and until we meet again.

"It is no doubt that your untimely passing has both shocked and saddened the hearts of many. I am happy to have known you Tyrone, you were a genuinely nice gentleman. My sadness is that you left us too soon, my joy is that you were and are privileged to experience the love of Christ. Rest in perfect peace and I pray we meet again x"

"I think we move on from this earth once we've achieved perfection.

A treasured friend went home last week. I still haven't processed this yet... I can't imagine what his nearest and dearest are going through. I feel like I will never, ever find the words necessary to express the loss. Yet, somewhere, someone has gained an angel.

I'm sending love and prayers to his family, the beautiful Maria, his brother and best friend Joshua, his wonderful mother.

Rest in Peace Tyrone.

Love Janine"

"Tyrone its with great pain I leave this message for you. I don't know how this could have happened. I'm so confused none of it makes sense to me, I am really struggling to get my head around it. How can someone so pure, wise, graceful, gifted, loving & God fearing have been taken from us. I love you bro and writing this brings tears to my eyes to know that i will never see you again, I will always remember you telling me to " Smile" Whenever we took a photo and me replying " Not all of us have mastered the art of a Hollywood smile like you have whilst practicing your jumping back kick". You are and always will be a BIG guy to us and we will most definitely respect your day every year. Take care bro and make sure you let GOD know that I will be speaking with him later. Love you bro Otis."

"Tyrone, your smile, your kindness, your passion and love for things of God is something that I found inspiring. Though your life was short, it was significant and will continue to inspire us all. It was great having known you. May you rest in perfect peace, you've been promoted! <3"

"My memory of Tyrone is his smile. A humble man who loved God. He was a man of Faith. You fought a good fight of faith. RIP"

"My biggest memory of Tyrone was his laugh in the short film My Brothers Keeper.  I took my nephews and niece's to see it at the cinema premier and it was a special time for me.  In informing my family of Tyrone's passing, one nephew wrote  'the kung fu guy?' Yes I said!  You made an impression.  Rest in peace."

This tribute was added by Chido Gideon on 7th October 2015

"Tyrone is such a man of faith. He was Consistent.  He was full of life. I had the privilege of being his Local pastor. He was very easy to pastor. He was a man under authority. It is no wonder he had so much influence over so many people. We miss you Tyrone, but we are confident that your race here is over. You kept the faith. So will we. We will see you soon my friend.  If the Lord permits, I might bring you those maroon shoes of mine which you said you liked one time :)."

This tribute was added by Kwesi Mills on 6th October 2015

"I don't even know where to start. I miss you so so much! I wish you were still here so I wasn't having to write this. I've got so much love for you Ty! You were always a bright ray of sunshine. I remember your smile, your laugh, our deep talks, our silly moments...everything! I am privileged to have watched part of your journey blossoming into a real solid man of God. I'm glad you got to meet Jenaé and we're glad we got to meet Maria. I feel like there were still so many chapters to write with you. Feels like you're gone too soon. I really look forward to seeing you again...but until then, I will carry your memory within me and never forget your amazing legacy.

Love you forever bro. Keep smiling. You're in pain no more."

This tribute was added by Raphael Gabriel on 5th October 2015

"Tyrone, a guy I could genuinely call a friend. Many regarded him as a "gentle giant", and so he was. I'm struggling to understand why God called you back so early, but his plan is always bigger than us. Thank you for looking after my sister and helping her to become the strong woman she is today. I know you're smiling down on us and through the pain, we can honestly say you're in a better place. My brother, until we meet again, rest in perfect paradise."

This tribute was added by Bayo Oniye on 5th October 2015

"Tyrone, a great man who loved the word of God. I have fond memories of you sitting in the front row at church ingesting every word that was preached. The biggest smile beaming from your face as you walked down the isle with your lovely wife. It's been an honour serving you and serving with you. We will miss you so much but will see you again. You won't be forgotten."

This tribute was added by Chisom Nwogbe on 4th October 2015

"There are those who strive to do good, there are those who are regarded as good, and then there's Tyrone! Pure, innocent, humble, loyal, kind... The list of amazing qualities and attributes goes on for days! The Lord calling you ho.e is the single biggest heartbreaking moment of my life but I still give God the glory for allowing me to call one of his angels my dear friend and my brother. I miss you and will always keep you in my heart"

This tribute was added by Emmanuel Wagaba on 4th October 2015

"I have to thank God for having you in my life, and thank you for the love you showed to me. I will always remember you as a powerful man, in mind, body and spirit. My only comfort is being fully assured that you are with The Lord. Your smile has always brought warmth you a room, and your hugs even more. Thank you for spending time to teach me things that you learnt. I have never forgotten, and never will. Rest in peace Mr Mitchell, you will be missed, I love you."

This tribute was added by Agatha Yolande on 4th October 2015

"When I look back on the times I saw you, you oozed with warmth, a sparkling smile and a gentle voice "Hello sis, nice to see you"...then that hug! You are truly an inspiring figure and I for one,  I'm grately touched by your determination and drive to fight through any thing that may come my way. That remarkable zest for life you shown to all especially to the amazing friends you have and your beautiful wife Maria, I will cherish. You are seated with the greats by the right hand side of your Father, having a marvellous time. Rest well Mr Mitchell. God has it all in control and he's working it out...it's all in control.

This poem made me smile when I thought of what you meant to us all, in different ways.  I hope you like it.

Remember Me

Fill not your hearts with pain and sorrow,
But remember me in every tomorrow.
Remember the joy, the laughter, the smiles,
I’ve only gone to rest a little while.

Although my leaving causes pain and grief,
my going has eased my hurt,
and given me relief.
So dry your eyes and remember me,
not as I am now,
but as I used to be.

Because, I will remember you all,
and look on with a smile.
Understand in your hearts,
I’ve only gone to rest a little while.
As long as I have the love of each of you,
I can live my life in the hearts of all of you."

"To the only true 'gentleman' I think I ever knew. You were humble, intelligent, respectful and a wonderful soul to be around. I will miss your contagious smile and your gregarious laugh. You have undoubtedly left a hole in the hearts of the people who had the pleasure of knowing and loving you. We can only take comfort in the fact that you are no longer suffering but will still miss you forevermore. To your beautiful wife Maria it goes without saying that you are family and we will always be there for you if ever you need us. In the meantime Rest in Peace my gorgeous nephew...."
