Thinking of the family today.

Our memory of Max is that he was a man that took the time to chat with you especially during his retirement because he was not so busy working. He was everybody's friend it seemed. Another of Cottlesville's great people have left us.

Rest in peace fellow resident and friend.
Victor and Phyllis

Sorry to hear of Uncle Max's passing, I always think about his lobster fishing days, how he got more than the average fisherman!!!! (Then again, I was very young!!)

Deepest sympathy to my cousins during this difficult time. Uncle Max always brought a smile to my face when I would run into him. He didn't always know my name but knew me as " one of Wallace's boys" when he saw me at pleasant view. Thinking of you all.
