Calvin Mayo Jr.December 28, 1947 ~ November 15, 2017 (age 69)
CALVIN “Cake” MAYO JR., son of the late Calvin C. and Vernell Streat
Mayo, was born on December 28, 1947 in Meherrin, VA. He transitioned
to the next stage on November 15, 2017.
He successfully completed a program, specializing in cabinet making while
at the Job Corp program in Lincoln, Nebraska and later received his GED.
He retired from The Johns Hopkins Hospital EMS Department in 2016.
Calvin was married to the former wonderful, loving, wife, mother,
grandmother and great-grandmother, Minnie Hunter Mayo for fifty years,
and out of this union five children were born.
Calvin was the oldest of six siblings, Pamela Briley (Reginald), Claudette
Davis (Gregory), Diane Johnson, Raynard (Madea and Louis Gwendolyn)
Mayo. He was preceded in death by his eldest son, Calvin Mayo, III and
brother Milton Muldrow.
Calvin was lovingly known as Cake and to some friends as KK. He
absolutely loved his music, dogs, going to the movies and most of all
going dancing with his wife Minnie. Every affair they went to, they took
pictures and argued about who Cake was flirting with. He had a smile
you couldn't forget, kept you laughing and always up to date on current
events and what was happening in the world. Calvin was loved by many
and will be sincerely missed by everyone who knew him.
He leaves to cherish his memory: his daughters, Vernetta Mayo, Melissa
Winfield (William), and Tam'ara Mayo; his sons, Devin and Balewa (Tehra)
Mayo; grandsons, Michael Blackwell, Keith, Kerry, Domiano, Dominic, Eric,
Devin, Matu, Malik, Trey, Rahim, Maurice and Kenyan; granddaughters,
Jonell and Janay Scott, Tiesha, lesha, Garnetta, Keosha, Mareka and
Shenarah; step granddaughter, Lashay; a host of great-grandchildren, nieces,
nephews, other relatives and friends.
Calvin's spirit will continue to live on in each of those he touched and his
children will continue to carry his warm smile and love in their hearts.
May God Bless You.
