Treaven Mitchell lost his father in 2009 to an incredibly rare circumstance. He continues skating in honor of the bond he and his father formed while Treaven ran a skate shop inside his father's locksmith business.
Treaven Mitchell is a skateboarder from Jackson, TN. His father Troy was a revered combat Marine veteran, faithful husband, father of seven children, and a hard-working small business owner. After exiting the military Troy became a locksmith and allowed Treaven to start a skate shop in his lock store, using it as an opportunity to teach his son about managing a business. Now, in the years following Troy's untimely death, Treaven keeps skating out of the remnants of a bond that was formed while running his skate shop in his father's locksmith shop.Written by
