Obituary for Arthur William Mayes
It is with great sadness that Arthur William Mayes’ family announces his sudden death on December 12, 2022 at Saint John Regional Hospital. He was born on May 10, 1945 in Fredericton, NB to the late Annie Elizabeth (Paisley) and Roy Parker Mayes.
Art was a very patient, caring and loving husband, father and grandfather. He is survived by his wife Rowena; daughters, Lisa and Krista; granddaughters, Sara Otis and Emma (Chris) Goldsmith; brother John (Carol); nieces, Angela (Nicholas) and Julie; grandnephews, Tomas, Leopold, Louis, James and Noah; as well as many other cousins and extended families in NB and NL.
Art met the love of his life, Rowena (Crocker), in 1965 and married in 1967. His childhood home was in Queenstown, NB. After graduating from trade school, he worked for AS Emery where he discovered his passion for antique furniture. He completed his carpentry apprenticeship at Irving Shipbuilding and worked from the late 1960’s until the shipyard closed in 2000. Art continued his woodworking career at Clayton Woodworking until his retirement in 2010. He was a member of the Carpenter and Joiner Union for more than 60 years.
He loved spending time in his shop restoring antique furniture, building clocks and other items. In his earlier years he enjoyed customizing motorcycles, building and playing banjos, taxidermy, CB radio and fishing. He was always there to help family and friends. Art loved big challenges and could fix almost anything that earned him the title “Mr. fix it”.
The family would like Dr. Sarah Caines, Dr. James Michael and the oncology staff for their exceptional care over the past year.
