Kevin Mayo Obituary, Death – Kevin Mayo, a resident of the First Peninsula, died on Monday at South Shore Regional Hospital in Bridgewater. He was the son of the late Captain Gordon Mayo and LaDona Mayo and was born in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. Kevin has met many people throughout his life as an athlete, coach, and sports fan as a result of his love for the game. He has held the record for “Most Career Goals Scored” in Men’s Soccer at Dalhousie University for the past 23 years. He is very proud of what he has accomplished. He enjoyed his role as head coach of the Lunenburg High School boys’ basketball team in his later years.

Their incredible season in 1994-1995, when they won the provincial championship, was the culmination of their mentoring, during which they learned the importance of hard work and determination. Despite his interest in a variety of sports, his friends say he was always up for a good debate. Kevin’s achievements in the maritime industry make us all very proud. He was the captain of the fishing vessels Chockle Cap and Maude Adams for many years. Kevin was well-known for instilling in his crew a work ethic of unwavering effort, honesty, and self-assurance. Nothing brought him more joy than seeing his crew succeed both on land and at sea. His proudest achievement as a Captain at Adams & Knickle Ltd. was never losing a ship or a man.

Kevin gave his money to various local charities whenever possible. When assistance was required, he was not above offering his time or scallops to those in need. He had a great time assisting in the organization of the Curl for a Cause event, which raised funds for Fishermen’s Memorial Hospital. Kevin is survived by his wife Wendy, son Shamus Mayo of Lunenburg, grandchildren Pippa and Zo Latal, brother Cyril (and his wife Patricia) Mayo of West Northfield, sister Dona (and her husband Robert Cormier) of Middle Sackville, and sisters-in-law Jamesie Mayo and Sylvie Mayo of Middle Sackville. Kevin Mayo was predeceased by his brothers, Robert and Calvin Mayo, and his nephew, Jeffery Mayo. Kevin was predeceased by both his brothers and his parents.
