GREENFIELD -- Alan A. Maynard, 51, died unexpectedly on Friday, Feb. 8, 2013.

He leaves behind siblings Rae Stone and her husband, Blair, of Sydney, Australia, Mark Maynard and his wife, Regina Curtis, of Warwick, and Ann Willhite and her husband, Val, of Royalston, as well as four nephews, Ian and Matthew Inch, Graham Maynard and Eben Curtis-Maynard, four nieces, Jennifer and Sarah Stone, Allyson Maynard and Dayna Mallet, and two great-nieces.

Another sister, Sue Inch (Bruce) of Mt Vernon, Maine, predeceased him.

Maynard was born July 24, 1961, in Greenfield, the youngest of five children born to the late Emerson and Thelma Maynard. He was brought up in Warwick and attended Pioneer Valley Regional School. After living in Los Angeles and Boston, Maynard returned to Franklin County, where he resided for 26 years.

As an actor, he performed in over 60 community theatre productions, both locally and in Vermont and New Hampshire. Twenty-six of them were with Arena Civic Theatre, with whom he served on the Board of Directors for 11 years, nine as vice president.

Alan was an avid music and film buff whose interests also included chess, crossword puzzles, travelling, pro football, history and biographies. He was known for his love of language, love of animals and sense of humor.

He worked as a builder for various companies and constructed log homes in Massachusetts, New York, Vermont and Germany. He also worked for Seismic Scenic, Harvard Medical School and the United Arc.

A memorial service will be held at the Greenfield Public Library on Wednesday, Feb. 20, at 6 p.m., and at which he requests that attendees do not wear black, as "the thought of that bugs him."

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Arena Civic Theatre, c/o of Cathy King, president, P.O. Box 744, Greenfield, Mass. 01302.
