Obituary for Mitchell Vern Davison
Mitch was born on October 6, 1980 in Fort Benton, Montana to Tracy and Cathy Davison. He grew up in Haywood, Montana, and spent most of his youth as his grandfather’s side kick. Wherever Grandpa went, Mitch always wanted to be there too. They spent a lot of time working on different projects, like fishing, hunting, and just hanging out. He remained close to his grandfather until his death in 2001.
He attended Haywood High School and played football for the Mountaineers as a center and defensive end. They won the state championship his junior year and he played in the All-Star Game his junior year. Mitch graduated in 2000. After high school, he attended Montana State University before taking a position with XL Cable. With this job, a lot of travel came with it, so he quit shortly after the birth of his daughter McKenna in order to stay close to her. He was an agent for Farmers Insurance before taking a position at Bison Ford where he learned the ins and outs of sales. He held the record for the largest number of cars sold in one day. He became sales manager at City Motors and eventually worked at the Great Falls Prerelease Center as a correctional officer.
Mitch had many pastimes. He loved the outdoors and enjoyed going on various fishing and hunting trips with his uncles and friends and camping with his daughter, McKenna, who was his pride and joy. He enjoyed watching football with his friends, and was always cheering for his favorite team, the 49ers. He has been in league bowling for many years and also enjoys movies and books. He became a Star Wars fan as a young child and watched every Star Wars movie ever made. The latest is the Ahsoka series.
Mitch was preceded in death by his grandparents Bill and Bonnie Griffo, his father Tracy, his Uncle Tim, Aunt Mary and his cousins George and Brandon.
He is survived by his daughter McKenna Davison, mother and father Cathy and Ken Zitska, aunts Trace Griffo and Rachel Morris (Miles), cousins Jackie Griffo and Eric Dailey, uncles Ed Dailey, Paul Volkmar (Kim), Mike Dailey (Dawn), sisters LaShauna Johnson (Jeremy ) and Katerina Zaitzka and many of his friends. Mitch was an extraordinary person with a huge heart and a wonderful sense of humor. He was always ready to help anyone. That’s why he had a large number of friends. Many came to see Mitch to offer their support during his final days and this was truly appreciated. We would like to extend a special thank you to Jessie Ryan and Jessie Jordan for all their help and support. We would also like to thank Rick and Mary English for their support
