Tribute to Leffrich ``Tim’’ Mayo, Sr.by Senator Jeff Sessions
Posted on 2015-12-03
SESSIONS: Mr. President, today I wish to say goodbye to one of
the great members of the staff of this institution, Leffrich ``Tim''
Mayo, an exceptional individual with a deep devotion to the Senate, who
retired from service on December 3, 2015, after over 35 years of
Tim, who some called ``Mayo'', began working at the U.S. Capitol in May of 1979 as a bus boy in the Senators dining room on the recommendation of a friend, the late Lawrence Green. Following that position, he held many positions in the Russell Building coffee shop, Senate labor division, and finally in the Architect of the Capitol's furniture division.
Tim really enjoyed working with Senators and their staff. He was exceptional at finding the perfect pieces of furniture that would fit the needs of Members and staff alike. If he knew you were looking for something in particular, he would search the warehouses until he found it. He knew every office and their styles and needs.
Tim would always greet you with a smile and a big hello. He was willing to help others no matter what the task or situation. Nothing was too challenging or difficult for him. He got great pleasure out of meeting new staff, visitors, and people from all over the world.
We will all miss Tim's smiling face and eager assistance in the Halls of the Senate, but also wish him the best as he moves on to bigger and better things in his retirement. Thank you, Mayo.
