He was born on March 18, 1943, in Charlottesville, Va., son of the late Mary Lockridge Mayo and William Marshall Mayo Jr. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his sister, Jane Mayo Harris. He met his loving wife, Audrey Marie Allen in 8th grade in Charlottesville, Va. Bill graduated from Virginia Episcopal School, and attended The University of Virginia School of Engineering. After marriage to Audrey, they moved to Barrington, Ill. and then Atlanta, Ga., where they began their own successful manufacturing business. Retiring to Earlysville, Va. in 2001, Bill enjoyed building and flying model airplanes, reading, puttering around the house and riding his Kawasaki Mule around the farm. His wife Audrey and his loving daughters, Jennifer Allen Mayo Sawicki (ex-husband, Mark Joseph Mayo Sawicki) of Earlysville, Va., and Mary Katherine Carr (Matthew Eric Carr); along with his grandchildren, Marshall Edward Carr and Merritt Allen Carr, of Atlanta, Ga. were his pride and joy.

The family would like to thank The University of Virginia Medical Center and the Hospice of the Piedmont (www.hopva.org) for their dedicated care and kindness. A private memorial reception is being planned for family and friends in honor of Bill.
