Obituary Condolences

MAXIM, GUY ETHAN; born April 11, 1956; succumbed to complications of diabetes on December 5, 2012. Guy was a well-educated, well-traveled, extremely well-read devotee of arts and sciences. Upon, and while receiving 2 degrees (B.S. in math and Master's degree in computer science from the University of Michigan), he accomplished such things as working on components of the Hubble telescope, traveling western Europe and parts of Canada providing Inservices for the software company by which he was at the time employed, writing and publishing short articles for MENSA Magazine, teaching math at Eastern Michigan University for a short time, and was an avid collector of art and antiquarian books. One of his happiest achievements was the ability to sail in the Port Huron to Mackinaw race. He also spent some time sharing his extensive knowledge of astronomy with local astronomy clubs. Son of Guy and Donna Maximovich, who predeceased their son. Guy is survived only by his sister, Elayna Erwin and brother-in-law, David Erwin. He did, however, leave sustainable "impressions" in the minds of those with whom he came into contact. There will be no Service or Visitation, but if you knew Guy and wish to make a contribution in his memory, he would have liked these sent to UNICEF, the , or the American League of the Blind.
