Gerard “Shorty” Mayeux, age 89, passed away on Wednesday, January 17, 2018 in Plaucheville. He was preceded in death by his parents, Dennis & Anita Mayeux; his sister, Rae Francis Mahoney.
Those left to cherish his memory are his brother, Clay Mayeux of Plaucheville.

Shorty was a hardworking, dedicated gentleman who had many friends. He always greeted you with some tidbit of knowledge that you were not thinking of or sometimes a joke to lighten the mood. He carried a complete history of sports with St. Joseph Catholic School being top on his list. When the St. Joe teams played at home, Shorty was there, when the game was away, he always managed a ride.

At one time, years ago because of his dedication to the school, the young students presented him with one of his favorite dogs. He was so happy with that act of kindness; he talked about it for a long time while he enjoyed his dog. The faithful friend died of old age, Shorty was sad for quite a while after that.

Shorty had a complete knowledge of all the souls buried Mater Dolorosa Cemetery. At one time to be sure of knowing who, when, and where, he walked the whole cemetery, listing and naming every name and the dates of the complete cemetery. He leaves an invaluable piece of work for those who follow Shorty in Mater Dolorosa Cemetery. Rest in peace, my friend.
