He was from North Queensferry but last known whereabouts was Edinburgh. He would be around 72 if still living.
I think his mother's name was Catherine Rusell

Marriage:

1961 MITCHELL JOHN
GRAY CATHERINE B M
INVERKEITHING /FIFE 432/00 0015


If you order the marriage certificate, it'll give you parents names for both of them, and ages, also exact date of marriage.

Various possibilities for John's birth, assuming from the marriage record that he didn't have a middle name:

1940 MITCHELL JOHN M LOCHGELLY /FIFE 405/02 0055
1941 MITCHELL JOHN M COWDENBEATH /FIFE 410/01 0125
1941 MITCHELL JOHN M LOCHORE /FIFE 408/00 0115
1942 MITCHELL JOHN M BUCKHAVEN /FIFE 459/02 0369
1943 MITCHELL JOHN M CULROSS (FIFE) /FIFE 418/0B 0004

The Cowdenbeath and Culross registrations seem the most likely, if he was born in North Queensferry.

There were no marriages between a Mitchell and a Catherine Russell (with spelling variations) 1920 - 1950 anywhere in Scotland.

But there's this death - don't know if there's any link or not:

1971 MITCHELL CATHERINE F
Other surname: RUSSELL
F Age: 93
HAYMARKET EDINBURGH CITY/MIDLOTHIAN 685/01 0701
