SPRING HILL, Tennessee - The severe, damaging weather that blew through Middle Tennessee yesterday and caused trees and limbs to fall also caused the death of Spring Hill firefighter, Mitchell Earwood, 35, at his family’s farm in Bethesda, TN. Earwood, served the Spring Hill Fire Department since Nov. 30, 2008 and made a positive impact on all who knew him.Mitchell Earwood's photo

“I’ve known him since he was a little baby. I worked with his Daddy and was there when he was born,” said Chief Terry Hood. “Mitch was our historian — he loved finding stuff about the Spring Hill Fire Department and started a Facebook page all about the history.” 

A solomn procession of the entire Spring Hill Fire Department accompanied Mitch’s body from Bethesda to Nashville. All personnel have been given time off to mourn and their shifts are being covered by area fire departments.

Chief Hood wishes to extend his sincere thanks for the outpouring of food and support during this time from the Tennessee Fire Chief Association, Logan Archery, Vanderbilt Lifeflight, and from all across Middle Tennessee. Funeral arrangements are in the process of being made and it is asked that the privacy of the Fire Department and family be respected at this time. An announcement of details will be forthcoming. 

Mitchell is survived by his daughter, Lila, his twin sister, Mallory, and his sister, Emily.
