Terry & family: Sorry to hear about the passing of your father. Sending sincere condolences.

Loretta, Terry, Todd, and the whole family,

It was very hard to hear Max has passed — I still remember all our Christmas dinners and time spent together. He never failed to make us laugh, and I will always remember his passion for life and the community.

Sorry for your loss.

Thinking of you all today. Max was a wonderful co-worker at NLHC. He was a gentle soul who went out of his way for everyone he worked with.

Loretta and family.

Max & I were co-workers from the time I joined NLHC until his retirement; for many years we occupied adjacent offices. He was always so helpful and supportive. We also spent many hours discussing His community service, which he enjoyed so much. A true gentleman and great friend. Thinking of you all at this time. RIP Max.

Karen & Family,

Sorry to hear of your brothers passing. Thinking of you at this difficult time. May you find comfort in all your loving memories.

So very sorry Loretta and Family for your loss…Max was a Gentleman. The Family always reminded me…especially Alma…how Him and Ian were so similar in Personalty. Another Angel is now looking over you Loretta and your Boys. May he Rest In Peace.

Many Prayers and Love

Uncle Max was far and away the smartest member of our family. I think that’s what I’ll remember most about him. He always carried himself with distinguished confidence, even when Uncle Derek tried to drag him into nonsense 🙂 Thinking about you at this difficult time and sorry I can’t be there this week.
I will see you guys at Christmas.

Lots of Love,
