He was born in Hope, Arkansas to the late Joe and Cindia (Stewart) Wyatt. He honorably served his country in the United States Army from 1953-1955 during the Korean War. Mitch worked hard all his life as a prominent carpet cleaner. He first was employed early on by City Carpet and then John M. Settle Carpet Cleaning Company.
