Mitchell J. Farrell, age 55, of Prescott, WI died accidentally on Wednesday, June 22, 2022 in Birchwood, WI. He was born on December 16, 1966, the son of John and Judy (Hitzemann) Farrell.
Mitchell grew up in Brownsdale, MN, and graduated from Hayfield High School. He attended the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities and Concordia College in St. Paul, MN. Mitchell spent his entire career in the HVAC industry. He began working in his father’s business, Jack’s Heating and Cooling, as a child. He went on to continue this career path in several other companies in the Twin Cities. He spent the last 20 + years working for Trane where he held numerous titles. The majority of his time with Trane, Mitchell acted as a Vice President managing the Great Northern Plains Region of Trane. He retired in 2021.
Mitchell was many things to many people. He never met a stranger and would make friends wherever he went, usually lifelong friends. He was the first one to lend a hand or give you his opinion on just about everything. But mostly, he was a devoted true friend. The love of Mitch’s life was his family. Whether he was near or far, every decision, thought, and concern was for his family. He worked tirelessly to make sure they were always taken care of and knew they were loved.
Mitchell is survived by his wife of 30 years, Jeanne Farrell; daughter, Maren (John) Kariesch; son, Jack Farrell (friend Alexandra Magliano); mother, Judy (Conrad) Schaefer; sister, Jodi (Keith) Stewart; nieces, Caitlin, Meaghan, Karissa, and Jenny; and many other family and friends. He is preceded in death by his father, John Farrell; and in-laws, Sally Simley and Jerry Simley.

Service will begin at 4pm followed by a visitation until 7pm. Private family interment will be at a later date in Prescott, WI. Arrangements are with Bakken-Young Funeral & Cremation Services.
