I have been out of the country and just returned Tuesday. Just learned of Max's passing. We had some good times in the couples group. I'm sure Max will be sorely missed. I know the feeling.
My thoughts are with you Evelyn.
We miss you Dad. Always in our hearts and on our minds. See you again.
your kids, Dave Kay and Derek
Dear Evelyn and Family,
My dad, Harlow Inman, is the last living survivor of the ten Inman siblings, children of John and Lucy Inman. He will be 93 on June 13. Max, my cousin, was born when my dad was five-years-old. When my dad was eight and Max was three, his mother died. Max's mother, my aunt Gert, raised my dad for the next ten years until he graduated from high school and enlisted in the army. I first met Max in 1955 in Montana when I was ten and he was thirty. I was in awe of him and couldn't imagine how anyone so grown up and mature could be my cousin. He just had to be my uncle! I only had occasion to visit personally with Max a couple of times over the years, but I never lost my awe and respect for him. In the past few years, due to my parents' declining health and my older sister's death, we've had occasion to visit by phone. I cherish those conversations and well as the exchange of Christmas cards. A few years ago I was surprised to get a message on my answering machine from him saying, "Paddy, this is Max. You have a new pope!" He was a delightful, involved, and caring man. I was saddened to hear of his passing only one day after the death of his younger sister, Tiny (Ulelah), in his hometown of Fremont, MI. Both of them are an integral part of my early childhood memories. You are in my thoughts and heart as you now adjust to life without your husband and father. Sincerely, Paddy Inman
My thoughts & prayers are with the Aiken Family. Max was a very good friend/mentor to my parents (Sam & Irene Singer), me & my siblings (Marcie, Mike, Morales) and to so many in the Salem community, namely Calvary Baptist Church. I am so very thankful to have known Max and he will continue to be in my memory as he was a very kind, generous, humble man of faith. God Bless His Soul. My condolences, Michelle (Shelly) Singer
Our deepest sympathy to the Aiken family at the loss of your beloved husband and father. We have fond memories of Max and his fun sense of humor. He will be joining our beloved Dad, Tracy, in God's eternal love. Carol Gipson Calkins
Our condolences to the entire Aiken family. Max was special to us as well. He will be missed.
Max was a great Exchangite and friend. He will be missed. Unfortunately Sue an I will be at our district convention in Hilo, Hawaii on Friday. We would love to be with you at the memorial service. Thanks Evelyn for all you do also.
Please accept my condolences for the loss of your dear loved one. May you take comfort in the hope of being reunited with him someday soon as promised by Christ Jesus. John 11:15,26
I also remember really good times at the Aiken home....backyard picnics, homemade ice cream and the early days of the Salem Art Fair. I still try to pick out the house on High Street....
Much Love & Many Good Memories,
Gladys Jewett Burson
Dear Aiken family,
I remember Max with great fondness. The Jewett and Aiken families had much fun together. Max had a gift for living life to the maximum. He always pulled you in to enjoying it with him. Much love to all of you.
