God should have made us all like Max. The world would be a much better place.His presence,smile and laughter brought joy to any room. Sad to think that we will never experience it again.

My deepest sympathy to the family. The short time I've had meeting Max where none other than an honor. He always lightened my day, as to many others, with a little story, a little joke(the coconut tree was my favorite), his family moments and the best of all was his smile and his laugh, just loving life. Will be sadly missed. Rest in peace Max.
In fond memory!

My thoughts and prayers are with you at this sad and most difficult time. I remember your dad as a wonderful person and an excellent parent. Always concerned about his children's education and personal growth, Maxie was a wonderful Dad! My e-mail address is attached and I would be really happy to hear from each and every one of you ... A hug, Ms Johnson

Maxie was a person you looked forward to seeing at the beginning of the work day. His cheerful and charming way with everyone was known all over the Copper Refinery and beyond. He always did more than his share and never complained. Proud of his children, he maintained a frugal lifestyle to assure they received a good education. When his co-workers suggested that Jamaica should become the 11th province, Maxie suggested that Canada would be welcome as the 15th parish! Rest in peace, Maxie.
sorry for your loss!
