"Tommy" has earned his wings. He answered the call on Friday, May 27, 2022 at Capital Regional Medical Center at Fuld and took his final flight home. As a result, our hearts are less bright, but we know the heavens are filled with extra doses of love, joy, peace and laughter.
John Mayo was born on November 28, 1946 in Danville, Virginia to Sandi Pernell and Mildred Mayo. He moved to Trenton, NJ with his family at an early age. He attended Trenton School System starting from Elementary through Trenton High School.
He worked at a company called Royal Engineering which at the time was located on Pennington Avenue for several years. He later worked for the Trenton Country Club, Trenton Times and a couple of other companies. God blessed him with many natural talents and abilities which later allowed him to become an entrepreneur. He was a home improvement and lawn care specialist. He was very creative and a perfectionist with his work. He would not stop working on a project until he felt it was perfect.
John was always loving and positive. He loved his family dearly and he loved to help others in any way he could. He always had kind and encouraging words to say. He helped a lot of people understand life better. He was not one to sit in a church pew every Sunday but he genuinely loved God. He would often tell people in the streets his testimony of what God has brought him through and how good God has been to him. People that got to know him would often say how nice and what a gentleman he was. Hours before he transition ed, he said to the nurses, "I
have a wonderful family and yall are strong". He also said, "God has been good to us and He loves us all".
