Maynard was born on November 29, 1944 in Yankton, SD to Charles and Hazel (Olsen) Rempp. He graduated from Irene High School. He worked various jobs in the area and joined the USPS for his life long career. He started as a substitute carrier in the Yankton Post Office. He went to Utica as a postmaster, then Salem, Watertown and finally Jefferson, IA where he retired.
Maynard married Lila Lien in December 26, 1964 at UCC Congregational. To this union two daughters were born, Lisa LaBau and Kimberly Janssen.
Maynard enjoyed life fully. He loved competitive sports, with golf and pool being his favorites. He always loved trap shooting and gun collecting. He was a member of El Riad Shrine & Scottish Rite of Freemasonry of Yankton. Maynard’s most memorable characteristic, was his laugh. You could always find him in a crowd by listening for his laugh. He was a good man who was always willing to help a friend.
We lost the loving husband and father a few years ago to the devastating disease of dementia. We will always have the good memories in our hearts and love him very much.
