Clifford S. Mayes, Sr.

Clifford S. Mayes, Sr., 89, of Lock Haven, passed away peacefully in the early morning hours of Tuesday, January 18, 2022 at Manor Care Skilled Nursing Facility in Jersey Shore, where he had been a resident for the past month. He was born in Lock Haven on November 25, 1932 to the late James E. and Esther Fisher Mayes.

Cliff was a graduate of Jersey Shore High School and honorably served his country in the United States Air Force during the Korean War. He retired from the Lock Haven Weis Market where he had been a manager for many years. He enjoyed horseshoes, darts, woodworking, and riding his tractor in his fields. He was mischievous and had a great sense of humor.

In September 1983, he married the former Margaret M. “Margie” Hamm, who survives. Together, they enjoyed raising dachshunds and sharing many laughs. Cliff was the last remaining original resident of Derr Hill (formerly Gravel Hill).

Other survivors include his sister Marjorie Myers, sons Clifford S. (Jennifer) Mayes, Jr. and Ronald L. (Marlene) Mayes, step-son Steve A. (Helen Katherman) Smith, and step-daughter Wendy M. (Kevin) Smith, as well as grandchildren Brittany, Joe, Matt, Travis, Chad, Danielle, Cody, Jennifer, Kaydan, Haley, and Brock. He also had two great-grandchildren.

In addition to his parents, Cliff was preceded in death by his brothers Ira, Carl, Robert, James “Edward,” and Donald, and sisters Lois Kline, Pearl Temple, Mary “Sissy” Savrock, and Charlotte Rhinehart.

In keeping with Cliff's wishes, there will be no services. Memorial contributions can be made in Clifford's name to the Lock Haven Salvation Army, 119 E. Church St., Lock Haven, PA.
