DEWART - Maynard S. Kratzer, 77, died Monday, November 14, 2022 at his home.

He was born in Middleburg on May 10, 1945 and was the son of the late Stanley M. and Marie C. (Schell) Kratzer.

On March 16, 1968 Maynard married the former Margaret A. (Rider), who survives of Dewart, and they celebrated 55 years of marriage together this year.

Maynard worked for various places in the valley but most of all he can be remembered for his extensive knowledge on fixing and repairing cars.  If there was ever a question of where Maynard was at, he was in the garage tinkering with a car.

In addition to his wife, Maynard is survived by one daughter and son-in-law; Tracy and Jeremey Rhoades of Milton, eight grandchildren and their spouses; Venessa and Justin Diehl, Brittany and Levi Yost, Danielle Miller, Kaelyn Fogelman, Gavin and Amber Fogelman, Bryn Rhoades, Jayar Rhoades and Bruce Cox, 11 great grandchildren; Gwendolyn Fisher, Carsyn Diehl, Bella Specht, Jaylnn, Jaden, Brielle and Lillian Yost, Dallis, Kensington, Bayleigh, and Hunter Miller, three sisters and two brothers-in-law; Alma and George Moody of Kramer, Betty and George Shively of Lewisburg and Maxine Young of Watsontown.

In addition to his parents, Maynard was preceded in death by two daughters; Lisa M. Kratzer and Peggy A. Cox and one grandson; Brayden S. Cox.

In lieu of flowers, the family is asking that memorial contributions may be made to Tracy L. Rhoades in order to help offset funeral costs.  She can be reached via email at MaynardKratzerDonations@gmail.com
