Northern Lights’ Maynard dies

ADVERTISEMENT

Mike Maynard, longtime vice president and manager of the northeast branch of Northern Lights, died at his home on Sept. 20 after a long bout with cancer, according to a company statement. He was 62.
Mr. Maynard had worked for Seattle-based Northern Lights since the 1980s, when he was hired to start the company’s Northeast branch office. A veteran of the U.S. Coast Guard, Mr. Maynard was known for his work in developing systems to protect and assist U.S. military personnel in the field, including the SATS and ELAM land-based generator systems. Among his final projects was spearheading the development of the Hybrid Marine system.
Prior to Northern Lights, Mr. Maynard was general manager at DN Kelley, a boatyard in New York. “Mike was a dear friend to all who knew him,” Northern Lights Executive Vice President Larry Repman said in a statement. “He was a vice president, board member, tireless worker and great promoter of Northern Lights and our products.”
Mr. Maynard is survived by his wife, Alexandra; his daughter, Tarryn; his son, Garrick; his
granddaughter, Vivian; his sisters Meredith, Marney and Megan; and his brother,
Matthew.
At the family’s request, contributions in Mr. Maynard’s memory may be made to Sheets of Love, www.facebook.com/sheetsoflove or the Lustgarten Foundation for Pancreatic Research, www.lustgarten.org.
