Gayle “Lap” Edwin Maine, age 87 of Fort Calhoun died Jan. 17, 2019, in Fort Calhoun.

Gayle was born to Basil and Opal Maine on Dec. 6, 1931, in Blue Springs. He married Gladys Suverkrubbe on June 23, 1957, in Fort Calhoun.

Gayle was a Korean War veteran who proudly served his country as a tailgunner in the United States Air Force from 1951-1954. Always dedicated to the flag and his country, he would go on to touch hundreds of lives as a Veterans Service Officer through Washington County from 1991-2011. He was very active in the VFW and American Legion and was a lifetime member for over 50 years.

In his spare time, he loved to spend his days fishing with daughter Gail whenever the weather and season allowed for it. He also loved to watch many sporting events, and you would be hard-pressed to find anything other than football, basketball, baseball, etc., on the television in his living room.

Gayle was preceded in death by his parents, Basil and Opal Maine; grandson, Mitchell Robinson; great-grandson, Morgan Robinson; three brothers and two sisters.

He is survived by his wife of 61 years, Gladys; daughters, Gail (Mike) Robinson of Fort Calhoun, Julie (Kevin) Kavan of Fremont; son, Ted (Lori) Maine of Blair; brother, Jim (Sylvia) Maine of Maple Valley, Wash.; sister, Judy Perdew of Roswell, Ga.; eight grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

Visitation was held on Sunday, Jan. 20, 2019, from 4 to 8 p.m. at Sievers-Sprick Funeral Home.

The family will hold a private funeral and burial service to honor Gayle, with only immediate family present.

Memorials in lieu of traditional remembrances are directed to Fort Calhoun American Legion Post #348.
