Obituary

David Scott Mays, age 60, of Brimfield, OH, passed away on Monday, August 1, 2022 at his home.

David was born June 25, 1962 in Zanesville, OH to the late Howard "Bud" Mays and Mary Ellen (Hurlburt) Bliler.

David loved life and had many interests. He was a gifted musician and could play numerous instruments proficiently. Dave was a member of many bands during his lifetime. Later on, he turned to songwriting and created original music in genres such as country, electronica and parodies. He was a master photographer and could often be found in nature or at a car show working to get the perfect shot. He will be remembered by many for his larger than life sense of humor. David was also known for his compassion- he cared for handicapped children, toddlers and the elderly in various capacities in his work life. Animals also held a special place in Dave's heart and all of the family pets were given lots of attention and silly nicknames.

He is survived by his son, Bryan Mays; his beloved, Kathy Mattice; and siblings Daniel Mays and Kathleen Hartshorne. He was preceded in death by his parents and his brother Denton Mays.
