Condolences to the family of Henry “Mitch” Mayfield Jr.
Hazel Crest mourns the death of one of its own. Twenty-three year-old Henry “Mitch” Mayfield Jr., a United States Army Specialist from Hazel Crest, was one of three people killed when militants attacked a military base in Kenya earlier this week. The young soldier was a 2014 graduate of Hillcrest High School. Rest in peace… In a show of support, a fund has been set up to help the family. Contributions are accepted at the Bank Financial in Hazel Crest (3700 W. 183rd Street).
