Maynard Andrew Huether and his twin brother, Mynard, were born on Monday, May 27, 1940 on the family farm near Tripp, South Dakota to Ludwig and Emma (Stoebner) Huether. Maynard grew up in Tripp and graduated from Tripp High School. He served in the US Army from 1960-1964. Maynard married Darla Weiderrich on January 24, 1970 and together they raised three children: Kevin, Kelly, and Stacie Huether. Later divorced from Darla, Maynard met Ivy Ross who was his special friend for the final 16 years of his life. With his love for warm weather, Maynard spent most summers in Tripp and winters in Mesa, Arizona.
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. Maynard passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on Sunday, February 24, 2013 at the Ft. Meade Veteran’s Affairs Medical Center in Sturgis, South Dakota, having attained the age of 72 years, 8 months, 27 days.
Survivors include two sons Kevin (Carol) Huether, Rapid City and Kelly (Michelle) Huether, Tampa, Florida; a daughter Stacie Huether, Missoula, Montana; six grandchildren: Matt, Myles, Kayla, Brandie, Kelly, and Riley; two expected twin great-grandchildren; two brothers: Melvin (Ardina) Huether and Roger (Karen) Huether, all of Tripp; three sisters: Bernice Schoenfish of Menno, Velda Holzwarth of Freeman, and Fran Vogel of Sioux Falls; and numerous in-laws, nephews, and nieces.
He is preceded in death by his twin brother, Mynard Huether, and parents Ludwig and Emma Huether.
