Norman Alphis Maynard January 22, 1942 - February 16, 2022

Norman Alphis Maynard, age 80 passed away on February 16, 2022, in Southaven, MS. There are no services scheduled at this time.

Mr. Maynard was born on January 22, 1942, in Leachville, Arkansas to Myrl and Violet Wilson Maynard. He had a long career as an accountant and real estate agent. He was Baptist and a member of the Memphis Masonic Lodge #118.

He was a talented musician, avid fisherman, animal lover, and enthusiast in everything boating/automotive. He was a master in both the art of organization as well as the science of tinkering. There was a place for everything, everything was in its place, and uniformly labeled. Until his last days, he could accurately tell you exactly where anything could be found, regardless of how small or elusive. Through the years he developed an unprecedented skill in the craft of “fastentry”. He could attach just about anything through the appropriate application of screws, bolts, tape, clips, snaps or his absolute favorite, VELCRO.

Loved ones Norman leaves behind include his wife of 60 years, Gilda Maynard; son, Keith Maynard, daughter in law Pamela; grandchild, Shannon Maynard; great grandchild, Nolan Wade; and two Yorkies, Gracie and Spanky.

In lieu of flowers, the family request any donations be sent to Tunnel To Towers Foundation. (t2t.org)

There are no services scheduled at this time.

    So sorry for your loss. My husband Bill Pate was also from LEACHVILLE Class of 1960. I had hoped to meet you two. I don’t recall Ronnie Jones’ Band playing at the HOP in Brighton. My Gran that place in the country & meet there. The bigger mystery, I was told you are from Brighton also. So sorry if I have forgotten you !!! I lived at Brighton my entire life until I married. Once again, sorry & I lost Bill in 2018.

    Dear Gilda and family,
    So very sorry to hear the sad news that you have lost sweet Norman. I just realized we were born one week apart in the big town of Leachville, Ar. No wonder we had been friends all these years. We loved his mom and dad, they were wonderful friends too. All our deepest sympathy to you and your family. We will miss Norman, a super wonderful guy and a forever friend.
