My memories of Max are from working with him at Lumber yards in Battle Creek. He was a friend and teacher to me. I will always enjoy those memories. Thanks for your friendship Max. May God Bless you and your family.

We want to send our deepest condolences to Linda and her families for the loss of Mic. We have known him for several years now and enjoyed being around him. His brother Dave is our brother-in-law and we feel your pain Dave and know you will miss him even more now.
I am sure all of the memories you have had with him will sustain you and his family for years to come. Keep the good times rolling and laughter in your hearts. He will be there with you every day, in some way, letting you know he is okay now.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you all in this time of sorrow.

Love to all,
Duane & Marilyn Metty
