Sharon Chapman, longtime manager of video, pizza and clothing outlet The Movie Store (in Boyd over 30 years) recalled when she was told of Mayhew meeting someone at her store and their nice chat.
Chapman said different people would share with her their sightings of Mayhew, and at 7 foot tall, he was impossible to miss.
One Boyd resident said Mayhew was "the one who'd always make you laugh."
Peter was scheduled as a special guest this weekend at Fan Expo Dallas at Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center Dallas.
