October 6, 1929 – June 25, 2012

Mr. Chester Oliver Mayo was born October 6, 1929 in Columbus, Ohio.
He served in the US Army, in the Korean conflict. He retired after 30 years from the United States Postal Service as a mechanic, and after 10 years from APDS as maintenance engineer.
Affectionately known as “Chet”, he will be remembered for his sense of humor; for he was always making friends and family laugh. He enjoyed watching sports and was an avid fisherman. He enjoyed traveling to the different casinos; and was a lucky winner at many of them. He was an avid bowler and bowled in many leagues including the Zip Coders, TNBA, Nellie Regan and Second Time Around.
