Passed peacefully surrounded by loving family Thursday, May 10, 2018 at age 79. Predeceased by his parents, Sue (Schrock) and Jonas Miller; brothers, Herman Troyer, Toby Miller, Vernon “Tex” Miller.

He is survived by his life partner, Rita Jones; and her daughters, Sonya Boatman and Krista Keller. Children, Kenneth (Theresa) Troyer and Vickie (Daniel) Troyer-DeRooy; grandchildren, Alissa (Jake) Eisenhauer, Kristopher Troyer, Brianna, Jacob, Andrew and Valerie DeRooy; great-grandchildren, Macyn, Brinn and Logan Eisenhauer; siblings, Sam (Karen) Troyer, Andrew (Loretta) Miller, John Miller, Harvey (Miriam) Miller, Verna Chupp, Esther (Dan) Kelley.

Originally from Plain City, OH, Maynard first came to the Rochester area looking for work in the summer of 1964. He resumed a fledgling racing career the following summer. By the time he retired from driving in 1982, he had established himself as a legend among the Motor Sports Community.

In 1977, Maynard founded a Race Car Manufacturing Firm known as Troyer Engineering. He built this into the premiere race chassis business in the Northeast. Now known as “Troyer Race Cars”, it remains the standard of the industry under the tutelage of the Billy Colton.

Later in life, Maynard remained extremely active with several hobbies. He owned several offshore power boats, flew ultra light planes and enjoyed all types of radio controlled vehicles. Truly a man who lived life to the fullest.

There will a celebration of Maynard’s Life to be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers, contributions in his name may be sent to:
