William Robert Mayfield
March 25, 1924 - December 10, 2010
William Robert Mayfield, surrounded by his loving family, entered heaven on December 10, 2010. Bill married Marian Pickles on June 25, 1947, and they enjoyed 63 ½ years of marriage.
Bill was born in Medford, Oregon, but from the age of 8 he lived the remainder of his life in the Redmond vicinity. He spent his early years cattle ranching with his father, Howard Mayfield.
Bill served in the Army Corp of Engineers during World War II, after basic training at Camp Abbott, (which eventually became Sunriver Resort). Ironically, he and his father bought Camp Abbott in a partnership, developing a successful ranching business. Always a man of integrity, his business was not conducted with contracts and lawyers, but rather handshakes.
A back injury necessitated a second career. In 1961 Bill entered into partnerships in real estate. Initially selling and developing properties through Northwest Ranch Brokers and then opening Mayfield Realty with his son, Bob, in 1987. Bill retired from real estate in 1997, but his life continued to be very busy.
Bill was a man of humility who served selflessly. Several associations that he contributed his life to were, The Deschutes County Fair Association, Masons, Shriners, Redmond Hospital Board, Oregon Realtor of the Year, Redmond City Council, maintained The Redmond South "Y"
flower beds with daughter, Jan, and grunt extraordinaire to Fred Humble at the Redmond Community Church.
Bill lived the epitome of a Godly life. He accepted the Lord in his 70s and the family finds peace knowing he is now anew in heaven. A celebration of life will take place on Saturday, December 18th, 2010, at 10:00 a.m. at the Redmond Community Church, 237 NW 9th Street, Redmond, Oregon.
In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to Hospice House of Bend.
