Mitch was an incredible person. He was so enthusiastic about being named new Greenbacker president. He had big plans in that regard. He was probably the most knowledgeable fan on Tulane football and basketball history that I knew. Very generous with his time and money to many causes especially anything Tulane related. He was instrumental in the Greenbackers having a tent at every game since Yulman was constructed. He co-sponsored our tailgate with car dealer Brian Larche and would always provide food to the club and anyone that would pass through. He was an extremely knowledgeable CPA that would provide advice or answer a tax question at a moment’s notice. I could go on and on about Mitch. He’ll definitely will be missed by all that knew him. He was a man of faith and would always dedicate his Sundays to the Lord. Tulane just can’t replace guys like him and Big Mike. That mold has been broken. RIP my friend. 🙏


If you happen to visit the Slidell location of Walk-On’s you see this pic up on their wall. Mitch, myself and Big Mike and a few other Greenbackers that was taken at one of our tailgates a few years ago. We were doing the Hullabaloo.

I am very saddened to hear of this.

Had Mitch been ill for some time or was this sudden?

By all appearances Mitch was in good health and was jogging 5 miles a day. A few years back it was discovered that he had a heart issue that required a few stents. Perhaps his death was due to this somehow. Not really sure. His mom told me at his service that he died of an apparent heart attack in his sleep.
