He moved with his family to Lincoln, lived in Malcolm with the Schulze family between the ages of 10 & 13, moved back to Lincoln and eventually joined the Army to proudly serve in WWII. After returning home, Maynard met his beloved Norma and they married on June 4, 1950. He graduated in 1953 from the University of Nebraska College of Dentistry and they moved to Kennewick, WA with their baby daughter. There they set up their home and a dental practice. A son and 2 more daughters completed the family. They established their faith home at Bethlehem Lutheran Church and School and Maynard served on many boards and committees, choir and elders.

He was gifted with endless energy. He took care of people. Although Maynard was recognized for his achievements at different levels, it was the work of spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ that was most important to him. He was always finding ways to preach and share the good news of salvation. He did it through his involvement with people. He knew everything he had belonged to God so he shared it with others. Maynard was called to heaven by his Lord on March 15, 2013.
