Obituary for Mitchell R. Gjovig

Mitchell Ruslan Gjovig, 22, of St. Croix Falls WI (Residing in Duluth for work), passed away unexpectedly Monday, March 11th, 2019.

Mitchell (Ruslan) was born on November 13th, 1996 in Lesosibirsk, Russia. He was adopted and brought to Wisconsin by his parents Mark and Maria (Gjovig) on 10/17/2000, and spent most of his life residing in the state. Mitchell is survived by his parents, siblings, Matt (Matti) and Morgan, his grandparents, Mike & Maureen Leahy and Chuck & Marilyn Gjovig; aunts and uncles, Jill & Mike Leahy, Craig & Michelle Jansen; Godparents, Tim Meyer (uncle), and Pat & Fran Capra; and close friend, Sean Haasnoot. He was preceded in death by his aunt and godmother, Teresa Meyer.

Mitchell was a natural athlete, excelling in any sport, or activity, he participated in. During his schooling at the St. Croix Falls School District (graduated 2015) he participated in: baseball (all conference 2014), football, basketball, soccer, cross country and track. In his free time Mitchell enjoyed spending his time in the outdoors; Be it hunting or fishing up at grandma and grandpa Leahy’s lake house, on the golf course, snowboarding at Trollhaugen, playing catch, or chasing the cats in the yard, Mitchell loved to be outside.

Mitchell was a humble man with a big heart, always willing to lend a hand to those he loved. He shared a special connection with children, who always seemed to gravitate towards his high energy. Mitchell’s kindness was further exemplified by his participation in several mission trips with Peace Lutheran Church’s youth group. His Love and compassion was not reserved just for people, but also for the numerous animals he deeply cared for throughout his life.

In Lieu of flowers, donations would be greatly appreciated and distributed in Mitchell’s memory to: Acres for Life, the Mental Health Task Force of Polk County, or the Wings Foundation.
