Maynard was born July 5th, 1938 in Holmes County, Washington Township, Ohio and was the son of Louis and Jessie (Jenkins) Mohr. On August 4th, 1957 he married Carolyn McKee and she survives.
Maynard began his career in law enforcement with the Millersburg Police Department in 1965 under then Chief Carl Starner. He left the police department in 1972 to help establish what is now the Holmes County Juvenile and Adult Probation Departments.
In 1977 Judge Jim Estill appointed Maynard to Chief Adult Probation Officer. Maynard worked on and off with the courts and the police department through this period. In 1990 Maynard was instrumental in helping establish what is now the child support field investigation program. This program was run in cooperation with the Holmes County Common Pleas Court and the Child Support Enforcement Agency. Maynard then moved with the investigation program to the sheriff's Department in 1993 when Sheriff Zimmerly agreed to take on the program at his office. Maynard was appointed as a Sergeant to the Child Support Field Investigator position which he held until his retirement from the sheriff's department on December 31st, 2009.
