The family of Brian Douglas Maynard are sad to announce his passing on February 17, 2021 at his home in Huntsville, Ontario.
Brian was born in Huntsville on November 19,1945 to Verna and the late Stan Maynard. He will be lovingly remembered by his wife Nancy, son Doug (Jody) and daughter Debi (Walter) Coker. Proud grandfather of Scott (Jessica) Coker, Jeff (Olivia Jardine) Coker and Brittney and Matthew Maynard, great grandfather of Kyden, Brielle and William. Also survived by siblings Edward (Barbara), Diane (Don) Moorhouse, Michael (Linda), Janice Trotter and Bette (Rod) Roberts.
Brian was an avid outdoorsman. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, flying and cutting wood. Spending time with his grandchildren was one of his greatest pleasures. Brian was a proud volunteer fireman for 22 years with Huntsville Fire Department, Station #2.
Our family would like to thank Dr. Andy MacMillan for his professional, compassionate care for many years, Closing the Gap for providing experienced and reliable PSW care, notably Deanna and Allana and most recently The Algonquin Family Health Team for their support.
Following Brian’s wishes there will be no formal gathering. If desired, donations to Huntsville Hospice would be appreciated by the family in lieu of flowers.
Brian enjoyed a life well lived.
Let Me Go
When I come to the end of the road
And the sun has set for me
I want no rites in a gloom filled room
Why cry for a soul set free?
Miss me a little, but not for long
And not with your head bowed low
Remember the love that once we shared
Miss me but let me go.
For this is a journey we all must take
And each must go alone.
It’s all part of the master plan
A step on the road to home.
When you are lonely and sick at heart
Go to the friends we know.
Laugh at all the things we used to do
Miss me, but let me go.
