Maynard Rindahl Jr.


Maynard Edward Rindahl Jr., age 57, of Mahnomen, Minnesota died Friday, March 5, 2013, at his home.

Maynard Edward Rindahl Jr., the son of Maynard and Myrtle (Benson) Rindahl, was born on November 7, 1955 in White Earth, Minnesota. As a teenager, Maynard moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota and attended North High School. He later worked for the Westing House for a time. Maynard was united in marriage to Betty Jean-Ann Williams and the couple continued living in the Minneapolis area. They were blessed with three children: Jeremy “Jay”, Chad and Chantelle. In the mid-1990’s, Maynard moved back to northern Minnesota and made his home in Mahnomen. He was employed in the maintenance department at the Mahnomen Health Center and also received First Responder training. Maynard later obtained his Boilers License and worked many years for the Shooting Star Casino.

Maynard was a very spiritual person, and often spoke about his Ojibwe heritage. He spent many hours teaching family about the traditional ways. He always had an abundance of wild rice and never sent a family member home with out sharing some. Overall, Maynard loved to socialize and visit with those around him. He especially enjoyed spending time with friends at the American Legion. His time was too short and he will be greatly missed.
