Max Spector, 89, of Melbourne, died Saturday, May 5, 2012. He was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Joseph Spector and Rebecca Gordon Spector.

Max was an entrepreneur and operated and owned an Engineering and Right of Way business supporting the Cable Television Industry.

Upon his retirement, Max became an extraordinary volunteer. For many years, Max was the treasurer of the Strawbridge Art League and the Artworks of Eau Gallie. For 14 years he served as president of the Eau Gallie Friends of the Library, as well as presiding over the Library's Book Discussion Group. Only those who were involved in these organizations realize how much of their success was due to Max's efforts.

His intrinsic respect for learning, culture and the arts was commendable, but his active and practical involvement made it all truly remarkable. Yet, he quietly and modestly avoided taking credit for his years of selfless service to his community.

Max was also a valued member of the Second Monday of the Month Book Club. He greatly enjoyed meeting with his seven good friends at the book reviews and at Wednesday morning coffee.

He is survived by his sons, Brooks Spector and Alan Katz; his daughter, Bonnie Katz; his sister, Eva Serotkin; and his grandchildren, Sinta and Maya Spector, Jason and Lesley Katz, and Danny and Lee Katz. He was preceded in death by his son, Neal Spector, and his daughter, Selma Sobel.

All friends and family are invited to the Melbourne Hilton by the airport for a celebration of Max's life on Wednesday, May 30th from 2 to 5 pm.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Friends of Eau Gallie Library, the Strawbridge Art League, or the Artworks of Eau Gallie.
