I somehow thought to check online before sending my holiday letter to Corky this year; hadn't heard the news. Condolences to the family; my dad Karl died two days later, on the day of Corky's service. My parents so enjoyed the Mitchells' company during their years in Lafayette, including the probably-still-famous Asian-themed party. As a kid, I remember the Purdue sporting events, including when Bob got us access to the football team and I got autographs from Mike Phipps, Leroy Keyes and Jack Mollenkopf! There was also the memorable night in Chicago when we met them at the Drake and rode in a classic Checker cab...that was so cool. Great family, fun memories. Hail Purdue.
