He also served as Emergency Management Director for the Lincoln County area for number of years.

  2. “Uncle” Maynard will be greatly missed, as are those brothers and sister who preceeded him. They have been called the “Greatest Generation” and I believe this fits for the Lintvedt brothers and sister. They were amazing people, and I am grateful that I became part of this amazing family! I will always remember the visits with Maynard and family in Canton, his warmth, his sense of humor and his faith. The world was a brighter place for having Maynard in it; and though he is gone, his spirit will live on in those who loved him and will remember him. I wish Marty, Carol and Mary Alice the comfort of the presence of God and loved ones during this difficult time.

  3. It is my hope that pleasent memories of Maynard will heal the void created by his passing! Please know that his family is in our thoughts and prayers! John W. Stene The Villages, FL
