He was born May 3, 1962, in Milwaukee, Wis., to the late Bernie and Donna Maine, the middle of five children. He joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at the age of 13, which played a significant role in his life. Playing drums was a lifelong passion and he began playing professionally as a teenager. He graduated in 1980 from Horlick High School and, in 1982, was called to serve a church mission in Arizona. Missionary work continued to be a priority throughout his life. In 1985 he entered Brigham Young University and met his future wife, Tracy Coates; they were married in the Seattle Temple on Dec. 28, 1985. He graduated from BYU with a bachelor’s degree in nursing and was later accepted to the nurse anesthesia program in Minneapolis. He graduated in 1993 and began his practice in Kalamazoo, Mich. The family relocated to Auburn in 1996 and he began working at the

Enumclaw hospital. He also worked in Federal Way, Silverdale, Renton and Bellevue. The family moved in 2000 to Buckley where he and a few friends created a classic rock cover band, The Maine Event.

He died in the midst of performing his duty as a bishop, collapsing during a hike.

He is survived by his wife, Tracy Maine; children Brandon Maine (Sara Bristow), Carissa Sawyer (James), Lindsey Paradis (Joseph), Joshua Maine and Megan Fox (Aaron); sister Laura Stindle (Mike); brothers Ken and Wayne Maine; and three grandchildren.
