A salesman at heart with a vivacious gift of gab, he used his talent as a salesman, an auctioneer and auction owner, and finished his career with his true passion of selling veggies and working flea markets.
Maynard was sure to leave a lasting impression on anyone he encountered and throughout his years he never met a stranger.
Maynard enjoyed socializing, spending time with family and friends, playing cards, marbles and collecting horses.
