In loving memory of Perry James Maynard, who passed away on Tuesday, June 22, 2021. He is 1 of 5 children to his father Gene Maynard and mother Marie Jean Tice. Perry grew up in Concord, Ca. and graduated from Mt. Diablo HS, where he loved and lettered in Track and Field. He married shortly after high school to Janice Shoemaker and they had 2 children, Cory James Maynard and Shelly Marie Pereira (Maynard). For over 40 years he was in the auto parts industry and enjoyed meeting and helping people. He became good friends with many of his customers.
He was a beloved father and adored being a grandpa to his grandchildren, Rebecca Maynard, Gabriel Maynard and Megan Pereira. He enjoyed road trips, watching any sports on TV and watching his granddaughter Megan play soccer. He was a passionate sports enthusiast. His favorite teams were LA Dodgers, LA Rams and LA Lakers. He was always wearing one of his team’s shirts or hats.
He was funny, loved to joke around, a dancer to his favorite Motown tunes and tried to be generous when he was able.
Perry is survived by his son, Cory Maynard (grandchildren, Rebecca Maynard and Gabriel Maynard) his daughter, Shelly Pereira (Maynard) (Son in law, Jim Pereira, grand daughter Megan Pereira). Brothers, Jerome (Jerry) Maynard and Barry Maynard. Perry is predeceased by his mother, Marie Jean Tice, Stepfather, Paul Tice, Father, Gene Maynard, and Sister, Linda Harguth.
His smile and love to talk about sports will be sorely missed. There will be no services, but instead, take a moment to remember something about Perry and enjoy watching, viewing or attending your next baseball game. GO DODGERS!!!

My deepest condolences Shelly, Cory, Becca, Gaby and Megan. Though I often didn’t get to spend a lot of time with Grandma Tice, and Uncle Perry, I have a lot of really great memories of him making me laugh, talking up the Dodgers, telling jokes, and entertaining the cousins when we were kids. My favorite stories were ones he told me about my dad, Jerry, when they were kids, or teenagers. I miss those days, back at the apartment complex in Concord. Seeing family.. being together, even though it was not as often as I wanted. Love you all.. a lot. And I think about you all the time. I still get to talk to Vanessa, but can’t see her, due to Covid. I hope to see you guys again someday.
