The Mayhews moved to Baltimore in 1939 after assignments with USF&G in Denver and Raleigh, N.C. They became active in the Trinity Episcopal Church, where Mr. Mayhew served as an usher in the men's club and on the Vestry.

His special loves included gardening and baseball. He was an avid Orioles fan and managed a Little League team during his son's childhood.

Mr. Mayhew is survived by his son, William Mayhew of New York City.
