JOHN LESLIE MAYFIELD, 63, of Bartlett, died March 25, 2014 at Trinity Hospice in Collierville, surrounded by his family, after battling cancer for seven months. He was preceded in death by his parents, James and Ruth Mayfield of Brandon, MS where he was raised as the third of eight children. John graduated from Brookhaven High School in Brookhaven, MS and attended Copiah Lincoln Junior College in MS. He served in the U.S. Marine Corps from 7/28/69 until his honorable discharge 7/27/73. While working on the Alaska pipeline, he met his wife of 22 years, Vicki Lee. He leaves behind Vicki and their two children, John and Rachel, five sisters, Janet Haynes (Joe) of Collierville, TN; Mary Mayfield of Hernando, MS; Jeannie Dolan-Ebach (Bill) of Germantown, TN; Constance Anastasi (Rich) of Atlanta, GA; Amy Dean (Mitch) of Denver, CO; and two brothers, James (Delphnia) Mayfield of Cordova, TN and Jerry (Debbie) Mayfield of Winston-Salem, NC. He also leaves his many cherished nieces, nephews, great-nieces and nephews, cousins and friends who all knew him for his quick wit, sense of humor and positive attitude. For the last 18 years, John was employed as a fuel tank driver for Kenan Transport. He was an active member of the Catholic Church of the Nativity in Bartlett where he was president of the Men’s Club and a member of the Knights of Columbus in the Third Degree. Always greeting members of his Nativity Family with open arms and a big smile, one of his great joys was participating in the Annual Men’s Club Super Bowl Party where, this year, he donated an original painting that was presented to the Chili Contest Winner.
