He is survived by:\r\r\n*Wife Linda Mayo\r\r\n*Daughters Melissa Adams (husband Doug Adams), Tresanna Tacia (husband Steve Tacia) , Kim Wallace, and Amy Fisher \r\r\n*Son Chris Fisher (wife Jennifer Fisher)\r\r\n*Brother Monty Mayo (wife Paula Mayo)\r\r\n*Best friend Garry Abernathy (going way back)\r\r\n*Grandchildren Chance Tacia, Colten Adams, Cody Wallace, Julian Fisher, Caitlyn Wallace, Judah Fisher, Gabi Williams, Caleb Fisher, Elena Fisher, Josiah Fisher, and Sophia Montes Fisher\r\r\n*Dogs Rowdy and Patches\r\r\nIt would be hard to discuss Stephen Mayo without first talking about his father Harry Mayo, the World War II veteran and his mother Bobbie Mayo (Watts) the amazing cook and loving parent. They moved to Tulsa when he was in grade school eventually settling in East Tulsa. There Steve became best friends with Garry Abernathy and developed a friendship that would endure for the next 50 years until his passing. They would go through high school (at East Central High School), a few marriages, and the joys and trials of parenthood together. \r\r\nHis teenage years and early twenties were focused on good rock music, fast cars, and motorcycles. It was some of the great pleasures in his life to discuss muscle cars and road trips on his motorcycle. \r\r\nHe worked at the Tulsa World as a copy editor, later proudly owned his own Cornwell tool business, and ultimately worked for Fred Jones Ford as a car salesman. It was the relationships he developed with his customers that he valued the most. He wanted everyone who bought a car from him to know that they were his customers beyond just driving their cars off the lot.\r\r\nBeyond his career, he was a proud father of two daughters (from his previous marriage to Norma Blackburn) and later grandfather to their children. He was a kid at heart and enjoyed any high tech toy or gadget. He could be found "playing" with remote control cars, shooting guns, putting together a new stereo system, and spending time with his family.\r\r\nIn the early 1990s, he met Linda, and would eventually court and marry her in 1996. He would gain two daughters and a son and many wonderful grandchildren that he loved as his own. Steve and Linda enjoyed many wonderful years of work, traveling, and life. Their favorite trips were taken cross country on the Motorcycle. However, they would also face great loss together as they would lose their parents and face many illnesses. Their love survived through the good and bad times.\r\r\nSteve Mayo died on Monday (May 16, 2016) at his home that he shared with Linda, and his family felt the loss immediately. Although we miss him, we are comforted by the fact that he knew Jesus Christ as his savior and is reunited with his parents in heaven.
