Kevin Anthony Mayo, aged 25, of Ashland, Oregon died Dec. 14, 2017, from injuries sustained when he was struck on his motorcycle.

Kevin was born April 28, 1992 at Mather AFB Hospital, near Sacramento, California. He is survived by his mother, Debbie Mayo; his father Christopher and second mother, Kismet Mayo; sisters Sarah Mayo and Monique Kelley; brothers Christopher Mayo and Dylan Jobe; nephew Kamden Kelley, and many aunts, uncles and cousins.

Kevin accomplished much in his short life. After completing high school, he enlisted in the U.S. Army, where he studied at the Defense Language Institute in Monterey, California, as a linguist in Arabic, Farsi, Pashto and Dari.

Following his military service, Kevin finished his education at Bates College in Tacoma, Washington, in pursuit of his Denturist license, then interned under his step-mother Kismet Mayo. Kevin achieved this goal, becoming a licensed denturist. Most recently, Kevin and Christopher, his brother and best friend, opened what was to be their first denturist practice.

Funeral arrangements are being handled by the Redwood Memorial Chapel in Brookings, Oregon. The service will be at 3 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 23, 2017 at Living Waters Foursquare Church, 1136 Fifield St., in Brookings.

For those unable to attend, services will be live-streamed on Christopher Mayo’s Facebook page. Following the service, guests are invited to a gathering at the Catalyst Restaurant, at 16182 Lower Harbor Road in Harbor, to celebrate Kevin’s life and accomplishments.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to a trust set up at Rogue Federal Credit Union under his brother, Christopher Scott Mayo, in honor of Kevin’s memory and to continue his legacy of Mayo Denture Center.
