Christopher R. Mayo, who died in a car crash on westbound Interstate
287 near Exit 9 early Monday, was a 1999 graduate of Harrison High
School who worked as a ground technician for GHI at the Westchester
State police said the 29-year-old West Harrison resident was killed
when he lost control of his 1994 Pontiac Firebird, which veered off
the road and hit a rock embankment. Mayo, who police said was not
wearing a seat belt, was thrown from the wreckage.
He was born June 7, 1981, to Carolyn Mayo and Robert Mayo. His father
played guitar and keyboards for a number of rock bands and appeared on
the legendary "Frampton Comes Alive" album. Robert Mayo died of a
heart attack in 2004.
Christopher Mayo's survivors include his mother of West Harrison; his
wife, Rachael Mayo of West Harrison; and his brother, Gregory N. Mayo.
