Beloved Mitchell Raymond Otho Bacot passed away onward to his Home & Savior, Jesus Christ, on March 14, 2024.  Pi day.  Suiting, since he was a math instructor and pi is reminiscence to infinity.  He was 42, six days shy of his 43rd birthday.  He was “joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer” (Romans 12:12).  He was a son and grandson, a brother, nephew, husband, father, and friend to many.  His identity was first, a child of God, and it remains so, for eternity. 

He was born in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania on March 20, 1981, to his parents Karen Diane & Randy Ray Bacot.  His legacy lives on with his family; wife, Jenamarie, children, Abishai (15), Micah (13), Hezekiah (12), Shiloh (9), Joah (7) & Ezra (4), dog, Snowy; his mother, Karen, sisters, Amber (Scott) Fitzgerald, Carly (Nathan) Bear and nieces, Jordan, Scarlett, Saige, Hannah, Whitney & Brooklyn; nephews, Austin, Finian, Liam & Jacob. Grandparents Rosemarie “Nana” Onley, Nancy “Mammaw” Bacot, and Julian Bacot.  Many uncles & aunts and cousins. He is preceded by his father, Randy and grandfather, Wendell Onley.

      Mary Jane, I am Mitchell’s Mom and appreciate all you have done with Hezekiah in teaching a love for the piano. He thinks highly of you and we love hearing him play. I do hope he continues and works hard with this gift he has. . Unfortunately, Mitchell could never hear his playing, but I’m sure he loved that Hezekiah had something to work hard on and keep his mind and hands busy. Thank you for all your prayers and support for. the family.
