CW4 (U.S. Army, Ret) James Eugene "Jim" Mayo passed away 22 November 2017 at age 74 at the VA Hospital in Richmond, VA. For the past couple of years Jim had suffered from dementia. After a fall that broke his arm a couple of months ago he had to be hospitalized, and he passed away very quickly after that.
Jim honorably served in the U.S Army from 1963 to 1988 and retired as a USACIDC CW4. He was a prominent polygraph examiner, and his expertise was sought regarding evidence collection, chain of custody, preservation, and accountability. Jim transferred his Army service to become a Military Intelligence Civilian Excepted Career Program (MICECP) professional from 1999 to 2013, when he retired from Army civil service.
Jim had a deep love for and devotion to the Army enlisted soldier and served in several positions with the VFW over the years. Jim sought many avenues to volunteer for soldier and veteran causes. He was never self-centered, only thoughtful on how he could improve any soldier's situation.
Jim is survived by his wife Jennifer and two daughters. Jim was liked by everyone who knew him, and he will be missed. To honor Jimís wishes, his family kept the memorial service private. Jim was being cared for at the Covenant Funeral Home in Fredericksburg, VA. No formal obituary has been published.
On 29 November 2017 Jim was honored at a private memorial service at Spotswood Baptist Church in Fredericksburg, VA. Following the service, Jim was interred with full military honors at Quantico National Cemetery, 18424 Joplin Road, Triangle, VA 2217.
