WILMINGTON — On June 16th JD Mayo our loving son, brother, uncle, godfather, and hero passed away peacefully in his sleep. He exuded a will to live and overcame mountains of adversity. He did so with a smile on his face, a zest for life, a lot of humor, and without complaint. He cherished his huge family and the lasting friendships he made.
JD was passionate about every interest in his life. He was dedicated to film making, reenacting, Hurricanes hockey, and studying living history. JD served as a senior member and 1st Lt with the Civil Air Patrol and had great pride serving America’s communities. He was devoted to his job at the Texas Roadhouse in Wilmington, NC. He was proud to be the employee ”Roadie” of the month for February 2023.
His kind and gentle soul was apparent to anyone who crossed his path. The impacts he made on people’s lives will no doubt be remembered forever.
A ceremony to dedicate his headstone will take place on Gaines Mountain in Blacksburg, VA. Plans will be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Wreaths Across America.
