Howard Mayers Obituary

Howard "Red" Mayers passed away November 28, 2016 at the age of 95. He was born July 25, 1921 in Dayton, Ohio, graduated from Monroe HS and worked as a machine operator before being drafted into the Army in 1942. Red was stationed in California until his discharge in 1947 where he settled in San Francisco and worked as a mechanic. Red raced motorcycles many years for Dudley Perkins Harley Davidson, SF and was also a member of the Bay City Motorcycle Club, where he met his future wife, Gloria; they were married in 1953. Red and Gloria also loved social dancing and attended many dances during their almost 50 years together before her passing in 1999. In the 1960's Red became a charter bus driver for Eastshore Lines until his retirement in 1985.

Red loved tinkering on any mechanical device: cars, engines of any kind, and electronics. He also loved music, dancing, playing the organ, watching sports and, of course, "going out to eat".

Red is survived by his daughters, Marilyn & Michelle; grandchildren, Scott & Jennifer and great grandchildren, Haley, Joey, Callie, Noah and Lucas.
