He could make light of any situation but always took the extra effort to make everyone feel special on a personal level. An adventurer to the end, Max visited Japan and Europe, and was intending to add Egypt and Iceland to his conquered lands. He was ever a thrill-seeker. Whether it was skydiving, train- hopping or activities not fit to print, he was always looking to take the next big bite out of life. Max was a talented artist and musician playing drums, guitar and bass in numerous Dayton-based bands since high school. An avid skateboarder, he was a frequent sight at local skate parks and worked tirelessly to make the Beavercreek Skate Park a reality. Max was an awesome son, a selfless brother, a loyal and loving boyfriend, a caring cousin, and a friend to all to the end. Sadly, a voyage cut too short. A private celebration of Max's life will be held at a later date.
