He had 25 grandchildren, many great grandchildren, a few great great grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.
Max’s health limited his activities in recent years, but many will recall him in his prime as a big strong guy with a quiet, thoughtful manner. Many people also admired his work ethic, you name the occupation, he can do it. He was great with his hands, could work on anything around the house, or on any vehicle. His number one job was a roofer. He supported his family roofing. He would get extra jobs on the side just to make sure he provided for his family. He loved to go fishing and camping when time permitted. He will be missed and will live on with all the memories he left behind. He is now with our Heavenly Father and has reunited with his Mom and Dad and all his brothers and sisters. Rest in peace until we meet again.

I was lucky to have you as my Tio I remember as I was growing up. I would see how much you loved my Tia Nene and how much she loved you.
And all the children's you were alway there for them you were a God fearing man and a hard working man . You do what you had to do to take care of your family because the love you had for all of them. Love and to be loved is the one greatest gift one can share with one another. As we started to age getting older no matter what was going on in life you always had a smile on your face.
Thank you Tio Max nd Tia Nene for being my Best Man and Tia Nene Matron of Honor. I will alway hold that close to my heart. In my eyes you were the perfect couple I could see how you look at Tia and how Tia would look at you with loving eyes and heart two hearts beat as one.
