Gene Mayhall Jr.
DURHAM — Gene Mayhall died July 18, 2013 after a long and happy life. He is survived by his wife, Elizabeth “Lib” Mayhall; daughter, Patricia Desforges and husband, Andre Desforges; daughter, Pamela Mayhall; grandsons, Justin True and Nicola Desforges; stepchildren, Leslie Packer and husband, Tom Packer, Kevin Calkins and wife, Kathy Jo Wetter; step grandchildren, Liam O’Toole, Caitlin O’Toole, and Esmé Calkins. His family will miss his warm, loving and generous heart, quick wit, cheerful optimism and his ability to solve any problem.
Gene wrote the following about himself and his life: “He got to do nearly every important thing he wanted to do and lots and lots of other stuff, too.
The important stuff included getting to help his daughters Pamela and Patricia grow up. He got to watch his grandson Justin become a man and his younger grandson Nichola grow up. Most of all he got to spend the last 27 years of his life with Lib, the wife of his life who couldn’t have been more wonderful. Lib came equipped with a son and daughter, Kevin and Leslie, who each in their own way are models for the best of all of us.
The fun part included traveling the US in a motorhome with Lib, learning to fly an airplane, building a house, collecting recipes and cooking, racing a sports car (once), riding thousands of miles on bicycles, cats, photography, writing sometimes amusing stories, being Irish, tools and growing old. Growing old is highly under-rated as a fun activity—especially if you have someone to grow old with.
Other stuff which was occasionally fun included managing hotel properties, publishing newsletters and magazines, owning auto repair businesses, being a newspaper reporter for a major Washington DC daily (The Evening Star), starting and running an advertising business, a software business and a public relations company, learning a little bit about computers and starting a website for his neighborhood.”
Gene requested there be no service. A visitation will be held Sunday, July 21, 2013 from 4 to 6 p.m. at Clements Funeral Home, Durham. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions in Gene’s memory to Second Chance Pet Adoption, 6003 Chapel Hill Road, Suite 133, Raleigh, NC 27607, or to the NC Veterinary Medical Foundation, Animal Welfare Fund, 1060 William Moore Drive, Raleigh, NC 27607, or to the charity of one’s choice.
The family is being assisted by Clements Funeral Service, Inc. in Durham. Online condolences may be made at www.clementsfuneralservice.com.
