McDonald, Max Irvin

Max Irvin McDonald, 83, of Williamsburg, Colorado, met his Saviour face to face July 9, 2017. He was born May 18, 1934 in New Augusta, Mississippi to Dewey and Roberta McDonald.

He served 23 years in The United States Air Force, working primarily as a Nuclear Weapons Specialist. He loved the culture and landscape of his beloved Southwest and especially enjoyed eating green chile.

Max's relationship with Jesus Christ served as the foundation of his life, and the times he spent with fellow believers in church were important to him.

He was preceded in death by his wife of 56 years, Cynthia; his parents; brothers, Billy, Bobby, Tom, Jerry and sister, Leta Pearl.

Max is survived by his wife, Amy, of Canon City; sons, James (Andrea), of Pensacola, Florida, John (Jeanette), of Williamsburg, Colorado, David (Carol Jean) of Leesburg, Florida; nine grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
