GREENE COUNTY, AR (KAIT) - A reserve deputy from Greene County died Monday after a two-month battle with pancreatic cancer.

A post on the department's Facebook page said Mayfield was an outstanding officer and was loved and respected by all in the department.

Mayfield also worked in management at Walmart.

He leaves behind a wife and two children.
