Oct. 1, 1937 - Jan. 8, 2018

Maynard's early love of horses drew him to rodeo and horseshoeing. Cattle ranching came next with operations in California, Oregon and Nevada. His love of Quarter horses grew into a successful horse showing and breeding program, resulting in many champions. Maynard loved wide open spaces and riding one of his good horses while checking on his cattle.

Maynard's long list of accomplishments include: American Quarter Horse Association judge, National Cutting Horse Association judge, Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association Gold card member.

Maynard is survived by his loving wife, Jacolyn Alves, of 60 years. They have three children, Debbie Butler of Redmond, Oregon; Terri Schneider of Carson City, Nevada; and Jim Alves of Twin Falls, Idaho. Maynard also has seven grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

Maynard lost his long battle with heart disease on January 8, 2018. He was born in San Jose California, on October 1, 1937.
