Kevin Gregory Maynor
March 08, 1986 ‒ September 02, 2015
MANSFIELD: Kevin Maynor’s smile could light up a room any day of the week, but it was always brightest when his Buckeyes were winning. OH-IO!
Kevin Gregory Maynor, age 29, peacefully passed away Wednesday, September 2, 2015 in Ohio Health MedCentral Mansfield Hospital surrounded by his family. Although he is finally free from his lifelong struggle with muscular dystrophy, he will be dearly missed.
He was born March 8, 1986 in Mansfield to father Kelsey Maynor and mother Delores (Hart) Boals. He graduated from Madison High School with the class of 2005. He went on to volunteer at Mansfield General Hospital for two years, working in the wound clinic. For the last five years he volunteered his time at Mifflin Elementary School, where his biggest problem was being requested by too many teachers—they all wanted his help in their classroom.
Kevin was a huge OSU football fan. He often said if he ever got a wedding invitation that conflicted with a game, “Sorry I won’t be able to make it—I’ll be watching the game!” Of course he never followed through on his threat; it was just Kevin’s funny side. He was a master of the one-liners and his off-the-wall sense of humor often came out of the blue and he always made it through even the funniest jokes with a perfectly straight face.
Kevin loved dogs and kids and they loved him back. His passion was music of all types, with a special penchant for Led Zepplin. Kevin, Uncle Lou, & Aunt Diane went to concerts together all the time. Everything from rock & roll to oldies, R&B and rap…they loved just being together and experiencing live music.
He is survived by his mother and step-father Delores & Larry Boals of Mansfield; his father and step-mother Kelsey & Pam Maynor of Mansfield; grandparents Veronica Hart of Mansfield and Kelsey Maynor of Galion; seven step-siblings: David & Chris Boals of NYC, Abby Boals of Mansfield, Mandy & Billy Boggs of Mansfield, Kaila Kasper of Mansfield, Tristan Eldridge of Mansfield, Jason Mullins of Mansfield, and Mike Mullins of Columbus; maternal uncles and aunts: Larry & Pam Hart of Mansfield, Leon & Bonnie Hart of Ashland, KY, Lou & Diane Hart of Mansfield, Leroy & Sumi Hart of South Korea, Linda & Michael Riley of Los Angeles, CA, and Lorraine & Doug Swanger of Mansfield; paternal uncles and aunts: Ron & Bonnie Maynor of Columbus, Bruce Maynor of Galion, Donna & Larry Beard of Mansfield, Gregory Maynor of Mansfield, and Brian Maynor of Columbus; a special cousin (and Kevin’s best friend) Veronica Spotts and her son Hayden Spotts of Mansfield; along with numerous other cousins, extended family, & friends.
Kevin was preceded in death by his brother Jarrod Maynor, maternal grandfather Herb Hart, and paternal grandmother Ethel Maynor.
His family will receive friends 4-8 p.m. Friday, September 4, 2015 in Snyder Funeral Home, 350 Marion Avenue, where a funeral service honoring his life will be held 10 a.m. Saturday. Pastor Erwin Webel will officiate and burial will follow in Windsor Park Cemetery in Mansfield.
