Michael was born on June 7, 1952, in Morehead City, North Carolina, to the late Fenner and Helen Mayo. He was a graduate of West Carteret High School, Class of 1971. Talented beyond measure, Michael was skilled with repair work and was happily self-employed in the maintenance field. In his younger years, he was a CPR Instructor and worked with EMS and as a firefighter, dedicated to serving others.

Michael had a strong knowledge of the Word of God which came from his love of learning scripture. When able, he attended Glad Tidings Church in Morehead City where he grew in his relationship with the Lord. He always enjoyed a good tune, especially one with a fast beat that he could play on his drums. Diving was one of his favorite hobbies, appreciating amazing marine life and exploring the deep blue waters of our coast.

He is survived by his daughter, Alicia Mayo of Morehead City, NC; son, Christopher Michael Mayo of Happy Valley, NC; step-sons, Dr. Colin Anderson-Evans and Eliot Anderson-Evans, both of California; sister, Beth Garner of Morehead City; brother-in-law, Garth Cooper of Morehead City; and several loving nieces, nephews and great nieces and nephews.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife, Dr. Alice Anderson and sister, Barbara Cooper.
