Dr. Robert Kent Maynard

Dr. Robert Maynard

2 Timothy 4:7 
“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, 
I have kept the faith.”

Dr. Robert Kent Maynard age 67, of Spring Hill, passed away at home on September 13th 2020.  He was Doctor of Veterinary medicine for 40 years.  Kent is survived by his wife and best friend Wendy Maynard, mother Gwendolyn Maynard, sisters Lynn Luchtman and Jenny Gierman, son Adam Maynard, stepson Shane Fiorentino, and stepdaughter Casey Fiorentino, grandson Jamison, granddaughters Panthea and Anastasia, and his faithful dog Copper.

Kent played the bagpipes for over 35 years in bands and for friends or his church.  He was known to play around the house at the most inopportune times daily.  Kent was also a very gentle and humble veterinarian.  His calm demeanor would soothe most frightened and sick animals as he cared for them and used the gift God gave him to heal. He was an avid Harley Davidson rider and was a member of Christian Motorcycle Association for a period of time.

Kent and his son Adam shared a love for fishing, games, and adventure in many forms.  Adam and his son Jamison share the fond memory of deep sea fishing with Grandpa Kent.  He was an example of keeping faith through struggle, both mental and physical.  Kent was diagnosed with Allport Syndrome 5 years ago and had been on a kidney transplant list for a year and half while he went to dialysis 3 days a week for the last 4 years.  The absolute picture of long-suffering and meekness.  He will be greatly missed.  Our loss is Heaven’s gain.

Kent loved his wife, his Harley, his bagpipes, his family, and his dog Copper.  Kent and Wendy were active faithful members of Cornerstone Baptist Church and served the church with a 12 step bible study weekly on Friday evenings for those suffering with addiction.

The Celebration of Life will be held on October 24th at 4:00 p.m. at Cornerstone Baptist Church 13171 Tara St. Spring Hill, Fla.
