On November 2, 1947 he was united in marriage to Isabelle Clarene Bittner. After their marriage they lived in Dubuque, Adel, Greenfield, Fontanelle and then on their farm south of Greenfield.

Maynard graduated from Richland High School in 1944. Immediately upon graduation he entered the U.S. Army 31st Infantry Division for 13 weeks of basic training at Camp Roberts, California before being deployed to the Philippines for the duration of World War II. Maynard was honorably discharged in 1946.

Upon returning to Greenfield the Army got him a job in training as a projectionist at a movie theater in Dubuque, Iowa, then Adel when he also started to attend radio and t.v. repair school in Des Moines. He worked at the Grand Theater in Greenfield upon moving back to Greenfield while launching his own repair shop from his home and then eventually opening Heiny’s T.V. & Furniture in Fontanelle & Greenfield, retiring from the business in 1994, but still continuing to farm.

Throughout his life he loved being an entrepreneur running Heiny’s T.V. and Furniture with his wife, owning many rental properties and also farming. In his younger years he liked bowling, shooting pool, playing cards, but his favorite hobby from the time he was a young child until he died was fishing. He also loved to cheer on the Hawkeyes and Chicago Cubs. He enjoyed most of all spending time with his family. His greatest love of all was serving the Lord and his church. He was baptized and confirmed in the Penn Avenue Church and was a member of the United Presbyterian Church in Greenfield for over 60 years serving as a Deacon, Session and the high school Sunday School teacher for many years.
