Maynard Aaron Overstreet, Sr., age 90, died March 14, 2024. Maynard was born October 22, 1933 to Pickens Aaron Overstreet and Vera Mae Finney Overstreet. He was a member of Jones Chapel Methodist Protestant Church as well as being a member of Masonic Lodge #226 for over 50 years. He was also a founding member of Overstreet Hunting Club LLC. After working at CIBA for 25 years, Maynard owned and operated Overstreet Grocery for more than 40 years in the Gainestown community; a beloved location for locals to shop and socialize. Maynard loved the outdoors. He was an avid hunter who especially enjoyed tracking turkey. He was a builder having made repairs and renovations to his home as well as the homes of friends and loved ones, churches in his community, and other structures. He was an avid gardener, having kept a garden for many decades and having planted several rows just prior to his hospitalization. Maynard was an excellent cook and enjoyed sharing his favorite dishes with others including his family, friends and hunting club members. Maynard was a hard worker, a strong man both physically and mentally, a brilliant man who learned much from a classroom and even more from the impressive and iconic life he lived. He was always willing to share his knowledge with those who were willing to listen and put in the work needed to better themselves. Maynard was a legend to his family, friends and community and will forever be missed.
