Capt. John M. Mayer
Passed on Sept 14th, 1998
"The presence of that absence is Everywhere"... Edna St. Vincent Millay John learned to fly while serving in the US Air Force as an A/C Mechanic. He hired on with PSA in 1963, having previously flown cargo at Slick, World Airways and Pax with Hawaiian and Pacific Airlines. Retired since Nov 1993 from USAirways, John always maintained that his years with PSA were the BEST! He felt priviledged to have flown in the era of aviation that went from DC-3's to Fan Jets and to have known so many special people along the way. He lived the last four years with Parkinsons Disease with both courage and defiance. Constructing his new home "Presssing on!" until his sudden death from Multiple Pulmonary Emboli.... He truly died with "His Boots on!". His wife Joanne and children found that so many shared their loss with them. Their thanks are to remind everyone, just as John did...LIVE FOR TODAY!
