I had the great pleasure to be one of Max's classmates and a team mate on one of Liberal's better Basketball teams. Max was a good friend. I know that he was good husband and father. Look forward to joining the basket shooting with you and Richard Cooper.

My Thought as with you Joanne and the rest of the family.

I fondly remember my basketball teammate of 1949 at Liberal High School. Those were happy and carefree days. Then, we finally got recognized in a pre-game ceremony at LHS about four years ago. You will be sadly missed. Shoot a basket for me up there. I'll get in the game with you in a few short months or years.

Joanne & family,
I am saddened by the news of Uncle Max's passing. I am reminded of happier times with turkey and touch football games. With the family gathered around the large oak table and realizing my days of having hair on my head were numbered. Mom was always proud of her family. Only Clinton remains. Please know that I am thinking of you in your time of loss. Lord bless you. Your nephew Michael 417.540.4747
