AMerican Veteran 10


May 18, 1954 ~ January 28, 2024 (age 69) 69 Years Old


Today, we gather to celebrate the life of a unique extraordinary man whose brilliance and warmth touched the hearts of many.

Bobby Mayo, 69 years old, passed away on  January 28, 2024, at Advena Living of Bonner Springs. He was born on May 18, 1954, in Atlanta, GA to John L. Mayo and Pearline Williams Mayo.

Bobby grew up in Nebraska. He graduated from Technical High School in Nebraska as an Electrician.

Bobby Mayo joined the Air Force.

He excelled in numerous fields, adept in plumbing, and computer programming, and as an electrician since 1972, leaving a profound impact through his entrepreneurial ventures and unwavering commitment to his family.

He worked for Owens Corning as an Electrician where he worked for 22 years and retired in 2022.

His passions were as diverse as they were profound. From his love of music, computers, and reading, to creating games, and apps, he embraced the world of technology with fervor and creativity. Yet, he also found solace in the quiet wonder of astronomy, often playfully referring to himself as an alien, a Klingon at heart.

He was preceded in death by his Parents, Pearline and John Mayo, and his sister Barbara Mayo.

Bobby Mayo married Syretta Jo McCoy in 2010 in Kansas City, KS. They were happily married for 14 years.

We could never forget his playful clumsiness, always accompanied by a cheerful "Did I do that?" reminiscent of Urkel from "Family Matters"? His spontaneity never failed to surprise and delight,  making him a cherished presence in the lives of all who knew him. His patient spirit and infectious laughter will be dearly missed, but his legacy of love and adventure will live on in our hearts forever. His love knew no bounds, showering his wife, children, and grandchildren with affection and care. His passions spanned from technology to astronomy, always embracing life with creativity and humor.

Bobby is survived by his spouse Syretta Mayo of Kansas City, KS; his son Robert (Tara) Brown of Nebraska; his daughters Antionette and Semeria Hall of Kansas City, KS; his brothers Darryl (Martha) Mayo and Bruce Mayo; seven grandchildren; nieces and nephews; and a host of other relatives and friends.

Rest in peace, Bobby. You will be profoundly missed, but your light will continue to shine brightly in our memories.
