Mayers, Fredrick Richard "Dick"  
Fredrick R. Mayers passed away in Lodi April 7th, 2015 at the age of 86. He was born December 13, 1928 in Thompson, North Dakota to Fred and Frieda Mayers. He served in the Korean War as a medic. He married Carol Schneck April 19, 1952. Fredrick and Carol had two children, Terry Mayers and Richard Mayers. Fredrick was a General Contractor in Lodi and owned many businesses including Mayers Construction. Fredrick was more commonly known as Dick Mayers. He loved to hunt and fish in his younger years, more recently getting together with his children and grandchildren for weekly breakfast at Richmaid or Sunday dinners were a priority. He still enjoyed building things or putting things together, if he was asked to do a project he would be right on it. He was a kind and caring man, he was always welcoming, inviting you for coffee in the morning or quick visits after work, he loved company. He had a special place in his heart for animals, he spoiled and loved his "kitty cat" and "kid" Shadow, and made a new friend in his grand pup Pepe. He loved to sneak the puppy food every time he saw him, even though he was going to get kindly scolded, he knew his cute face would get him out of trouble. He will be missed more than he would have ever guessed, his opinions and advice are irreplaceable, but we are comforted by knowing he is in a better place. Dick was preceded in death by his wife Carol. Dick is survived by his children Terry Lee Mayers of Lodi, CA; Richard Danny Mayers and his wife Elizabeth of Lockeford, CA; Granchildren: Jennifer, Carolyn, Kristyne, Richard, and Carly Mayers and Great-Granddaughter Kiersten Mayers. Also Dick is survived by three of his eleven siblings Donnie, Evelyn, and Betty. Private services will be held at a later time. Please sign the guest book at http://www.lodinews/ . com/guestbook
