Just heard of and saddened by Max's passing. I had the pleasure of knowing him since I was 10 years old playing football with him at Esther Short Park. He was a very good football player at Vancouver H.S. and an excellent slow pitch softball competitor for many years. It was always great to see him over the years at Chronis' Restaurant. A fine man and a wonderful person.
