Remembering Welton Hollis “Jiggs” Mayfield

W.H. “Jiggs” Mayfield, 92, of Stanley, LA, passed away in Shreveport, Louisiana on Thursday, May 11, 2023.

Born May 4th, 1931, proud father, grandfather, and great grandfather has gone to heaven and is reunited with his wife Shirley Mae Mayfield.

Jiggs lived a long life of building and tinkering and would create incredible machines to help improve his life and those around him. He loved to work in his shop and create or weld. If he did not possess a specific tool, he would design and create it himself. Jiggs also loved gardening. Known to his grandchildren and great grandchildren as PawPaw, they would help him gather the peas and they would sit and eat ripened tomatoes in the summer. Jiggs lived for fishing and would often be on or near the water catching white perch. He would take his grandchildren and great grandchildren out on the boat and would teach them how to clean the fish that they caught together.

Jiggs is survived by his only child, Richard “Ric” Mayfield and wife, Mary and survived by his grandchildren, and spouses, Amy and  Charles Hall, Rebecca and Joe Thompson, Sarah and Ashton Ford, Erin and Jonathan Parish, Richard Jr. and Samantha Mayfield and his great-grandchildren, Jenna, Ian, Andrew, Cameron, Morgan, Ryan, Gage, Jersey, Nora, Caston and Reelen.

Funeral was held at Rose-Neath Funeral Home, 2500 Southside Dr., Shreveport, Louisiana, on Monday May 22, 2023 at 1:00 p.m.
