April 12, 1932 – May 14, 2018

Orphaned as a child, former Detroiter Carl Mitchell joined the U.S. Army at age 17 and served as a combat medic during the Korean War.  While home in Detroit on leave, he discovered the gay bars downtown, where his uniform attracted much attention.  He later worked as a nurse in Detroit-area hospitals.  Mitchell was survived in St. Petersburg, Florida by Robert Stanley, his partner of 48 years.
