Bells

William Ellis “Dinker” Mayfield age 51 of Bells, passed away on Monday, May 10, 2021 in Jackson Madison County General Hospital, surrounded by his loving family.

Dinker was born February 13, 1970 in Lake Villa, Illinois to Wilbia Austin Mayfield and the late Bertha M. Phillips Mayfield. He was a truck driver and member of Bells First Baptist Church.

Dinker was a kind hearted and loving soul. He never met a stranger and would do anything to help anybody. Dinker loved the Lord and his beloved family and friends. He truly cared about others and would put their needs before his own… even when he was battling for his life against cancer. He never had a negative attitude as he always looked to the positive. On his worst  days, Dinker would put on his superman cape, smile and tell you he was doing ok. He was prepared to see the Lord, whenever it was his time. On Monday night, Dinker’s name was called and he answered. He defeated cancer and now has received his eternal reward in Heaven.

In addition to his mother, Dinker was preceded in death by three brothers, Freddie Worley, James Hamm and David Mayfield.

Survivors include his loving wife, Amy Williams Mayfield of Bells; three daughters, Kristin Paige Spotts (Ethan) of Jackson, Kaitlyn Alexandria Mayfield (Hunter) of Crockett Mills and Kaylee Laman Mayfield of Alamo; father Wilbia Austin Mayfield of Alamo; brother, Richard Mayfield of Mississippi; sister, Brenda Jones of Maury City. Other survivors include a grandson, Michael Jase Spotts as well as two special people, he also loved and considered part of his family, Katie Burleson and her son, Ryver

Serving as pallbearers are Adam Williams, Charles Williams, Ray Jones, Austin Mayfield, Brandon Jones and Rob Brigman; as well as one honorary pallbearer, James Phillips.
