Mitch will be remembered for his love of children and animals, his big heart and his “big” hugs. He liked to greet people with a hug and leave them with a hug. He had a special place in his heart for his dog, Rocky.

He is survived by his parents, Tammy Bechtold (Todd Schlangen) of St. Joseph; siblings, Curtis Hiltner of St. Cloud, Lexie Hiltner of St. Cloud, Cody (Hannah) Schlangen of Jacksonville, North Carolina; nephew, Barrett Hiltner; grandparents, Ray & Bobbie Bechtold and Allen & Pat Ehlert of St. Joseph and Herb & Joanne Schlangen of Cold Spring; and many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

He was preceded in death by his father, Rick; grandfather, Joseph Hiltner; aunt, Susan Hiltner; and great grandparents.

Mitch’s favorite color was red, please feel free to incorporate red into your attire.

A heartfelt thank you to the St. Cloud Hospital for the wonderful care of Mitch and our family.
