Maynard Frank "Tony" Sebranek

Cathedral City - Maynard Frank "Tony" Sebranek died unexpectedly at ManorCare Health Services on Monday, November 9th, 2020 in Cathedral City, California at the age of 81.

Maynard Sebranek is survived by his children, Kelly and Kristin, grandchildren Ember and Ava, and numerous nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his parents, Adolph and Victoria of Hillsboro, WI, sister Bessie, and brothers Duane and Adolph "Doc".

Maynard Sebranek was born on June 5th, 1939 in Hillsboro, WI to Adolph and Victoria née Holak. A 1957 graduate of West Lima High, Maynard went on to attend UW-Platteville at Richland and graduate with a bachelor's of science in education. Over the years, Maynard adopted two children into his home and set about teaching them his abundant love for life and adventure. His children remember him as a driven and dedicated father who encouraged them to pursue their goals while never forgetting about their dreams.

Maynard was an accomplished elementary school teacher of 38 years, primarily in the Elmbrook, WI school district, but also in Stone Bank, WI, Venezuela, and Peru, and was occasionally known to bring the family's Grand Champion llama to school.

A memorial gathering is eagerly anticipated in the near future. All family and friends will be welcome to attend and celebrate Maynard's life. The family requests those who wish to express sympathy to consider making a donation to their favorite charity in Maynard's name. Condolences can be sent to 496 N. Cedar St, Adams, WI 53910. The family would like to thank the caregivers and staff of ManorCare for their care and dedication.

I had him as my fifth grade teacher, MANY years ago. As I scrolled Facebook looking for people I might know, I recognized his smile immediately. My deepest sympathies for your loss. I will always remember his Peru stories, his special prize box, his kindness, and how much fun I had as his student.

We knew Tony through the lunch group in Palm Springs. It seemed we used to meet him in the parking lot and we would walk in together. I think he was always early. He was a very nice person and we shall miss him when we are back in Palm Springs.
