Maynard was a friend and a bunch of fun to be with. We played meny rounds of golf together at Ft. Eustis and with the PRMC group. My sympathy to the Thweatt family.
So sorry to read this. He was a great person
I met and became friends with Maynard as a member of the PRMC group. We played many enjoyable rounds of golf throughout the Tidewater area during our Monday outings. Maynards friendship and comradeship will sorely be missed, but never forgotten. My sincere condolence to the Thweatt
I am so sorry to hear about Maynard. We lost touch after Jerry passed away but didn’t lose the memories of our friendship or our chip ‘n putt tournaments! He was a good guy and a real friend to Jerry and I.
My sympathy to the family. Like his parents, he (and his wife) were dedicated church supporters.
Wow my long time golfing buddy is playing golf with all the pros in heaven now.
The father of my daughter in law Phyllis Divine, we shared soooo many vacations together and the memories he has left me will never be forgotten. But our most memorable vacation was at Gatlinburg, Tennessee.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family. 🙏🏼🙏🏻💜💜
