Obituary for Maynard R. Lafrenz

MAYNARD RANDALL LAFRENZ was born to Hans and Etta (Bruining) Lafrenz at the Luverne Community Hospital in Luverne, Minnesota. He was raised on farms in Rock County, Minnesota near Beaver Creek and then in Mound Township. Maynard received his education in Luverne, graduating from Luverne High School in 1963. He went to work at Luverne Oil and then at Schoon Motor. Eventually Maynard became self-employed doing auto-body restoration. He later purchased an Exhaust Pros franchise in Luverne which he operated until his retirement. Following his retirement, Maynard became more active in local government as a city councilman, until becoming disabled. In October 2012, he became a resident at the Lyon County Care Center in Rock Rapids, Iowa. In October 2015, Maynard became a resident at Golden LivingCenter in Slayton, Minnesota, where on Tuesday, November 16, 2016 he died peacefully at the age of 70 years, nine months and 14 days.

Maynard was a member of Bethany Lutheran Church in Luverne. He enjoyed car racing, watching the Minnesota Vikings and his dog, Sheeba. Most of all he enjoyed going to have coffee and an occasional cookie with the guys in the morning and talking about local happenings.

Maynard is lovingly remembered by his two siblings, Jimmie Lafrenz (special friend, Janice Larson) of Beaver Creek, and Wanda Kafka of Luverne; two nieces; two great-nieces; and 8 great-great-nieces and nephews; and other friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, Hans and Etta Lafrenz; and brother-in-law, LaVern Kafka.
