Dr. Paul Mayhew

A private family service will be held at East View Cemetery on Saturday, with Dr. Cecil Sewell Jr. officiating. It will be followed by visitation for friends of the family from 1-2 p.m. Saturday at Union City First Baptist Church family life center.  
The family requests that memorials be made to Tennessee Baptist Children’s Homes, Memorial and Honor Gifts, P.O. Box 2206, Brentwood, TN 37024-2206.
He was preceded in death by his dear wife, Edith Caroline Mayhew; and his parents, William Ezra Mayhew and Emma Alice Dearing.  
He is survived by two daughters and his son-in-law, Diane Ford of Franklin and Claudia and Mark Mendenhall of New Braunfels, Texas; his son and daughter-in-law, Dr. Paul Jr. and Linda Mayhew of Franklin; nine grandchildren and their spouses, Christopher Ford, Jonathan and Holly Ford, Sarah and Jeremy Flick, David and Tiffany Mendenhall, Allison Mayhew, Dylan Wyer, Katherine Mendenhall, Micah and Rivka Wyer and Ruth Mayhew; his great-grandchildren, Justus Ford, Jadyn Ford, Eleanor Mayhew, Madeline Flick, Abner Flick, Mary Frances Ford, Parker Mendenhall and Caroline Mendenhall; and special friends, Gary and Helen Francis.  
He was a hard working, kind and gentle man, never lacking in integrity; he was loved by his family and will be greatly missed.
