Mayne, John Raymond

Chili: (1933-2016) passed away peacefully on 14 August 2016 at age 83. He is predeceased by his son Daniel John Mayne who died from leukemia two months before turning age 5 in 1961. He is survived by wife Jacqueline (Hightower) Mayne; sons James (Susan) Mayne of Old Lyme, Connecticut, Douglas (Susan) Mayne of Suffield, Connecticut and daughter Rebecca (Bradley) Flick of Tehachapi, California; grandchildren Alexander and Daniel Mayne, Benjamin and Henry Mayne, and Shelby and Ryan Flick; sister Beverly Rickard; sisters-in-law Launa Carreras and Barbara Hughey; and many nieces and nephews. 

John joined General Railway Signal Company (GRS) as an RIT co-op student, right out of West High School in 1951, where he worked for many years. He became President of Electric Panelboard Company in 1974, where he worked for over a decade. In 1988, John was named President of CASCO Systems, a joint venture company in Shanghai China, where he and Jacqueline lived through 1991. Before retiring in 1996, he worked for Pac Rim Consultants in California. 

John and Jacqueline traveled the world, exploring exotic locations and reconnecting with Ex-Patriots from Shanghai. They also enjoyed travelling the US including visits to children and grandchildren in California and Connecticut. John was an engineer by occupation and avocation, and always had a project underway to satisfy his artistic streak or build or rebuild something that needed his attention. John loved spending time with friends and neighbors and often his projects were for others. John was always one to lend a hand, and when he could no longer he greatly appreciated those who lent a hand to him. Special thanks to Suzanne and Katy from Lifetime Care and Rodney from NurseCore for all their support and caring.

Friends may call at Leo M. Bean and Sons Wed. 2-4pm. Private interment at Grove Place Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in John's memory to the Wilmot Cancer Institute, University of Rochester Medical Center, 601 Elmwood Avenue, Box 704, Rochester, NY 14642.
