Kenneth worked in finance most of his life. He and his wife owned Mayeux One Stop grocery store for a few years. They later owned ABC Finance for 21 years until their retirement. He was an avid hunter and loved being outdoors. He very seldom came home without killing the limit of whatever was in season. Going to the camp with friends and family and cooking big meals or roasting a pig was something he enjoyed. Every year he planted a beautiful garden. He loved sharing his plentiful crop with family and friends.
He was a wonderful man who was willing to help anyone in need. He was an awesome husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather to his family who was “Number One” in his life. He always made sure his family had everything they needed.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Earl and Nola Mayeux and his brother, Clyde “Bubba” Mayeux.
Those left to cherish his memory include his wife and high school sweetheart of 56 years, Guynn Gremillion Mayeux, two daughters, Melissa Bacon and Kristen Tamburo; one son, Kenny Mayeux; sister, Gretchen Mayeux; grandchildren, Meghan Tabor (William), Mallory Mejias, Lexi Tamburo and Kaleb Mayeux; great grandchildren, Carter and Saylor.
Pallbearers honored to serve will be Kenny Mayeux, Kaleb Mayeux, William Tabor, Bailey Murray, Justin Lee and Bert Tamburo.
The family would like to thank the nurses and staff in Medical ICU at RRMC for going above and beyond their duties to ensure Kenneth was comfortable and treated like family.
