History of Mayfield Veteran's Memorial

On September 25, 2002, Mayfield High School students and staff planted a tree in memory of former student Charles Stanley. Charles lost his life in Vietnam on February 6, 1969, and was finally buried in Arlington National Cemetery on September 6, 2002.


The honoring of Charles Stanley motivated a group of students, staff and residents to recognize all former students of Mayfield High School who served United States Armed Forces. On May 28, 2004, nineteen former Mayfield High School students who died while serving in the U.S. military were recognized during a dedication ceremony of the MHS Veteran's Memorial. Granite stones with each of their names and military rank were placed around the flagpole for a permanent memorial in their honor. The first nineteen men honored were:
  • Seaman 2nd Class Roy Allen
  • Seaman 3rd Class Jim Blaskis
  • Sergeant David Campbell
  • SPEC 4 Jeffrey Cramer
  • Seaman 2nd Class Robert Dalrymple
  • PFC Nicholas DiCillo
  • TECH 4 Armand Federico
  • PFC Danny Fisher
  • PFC Elmer Kelly
  • Captain Norman Kidd
  • PFC Gregory Koschal
  • PFC Phillip Lierse
  • Lieutenenant J.G. Roy Mack
  • Lieutenant Rudy Marko
  • Lieutenant Ian Robertson
  • CWO Charles Stanley
  • PFC Theodore Takacs
  • PFC William Tartler
  • LCPL Michael Tecco
  • Torpedo's Mate Willie Whitright

On May 27, 2005, members of the Mayfield High School Veterans Memorial committee dedicated a second memorial to our former students who served in the U.S. military and to those who were honorably discharged. Brick pavers with the names and military rank of these men and women were placed around the existing granite markers to complete the permanent memorial in honor of our veterans. Also in 2005 another fallen veteran was added to the memorial Lieutenant J.G. Roy Mack.
