Deitrickson, Max's Guestbook

Monday at 1:45. I have been scouring everywhere for any bit of Max, then I remembered the online guest book. I know there is more, but Brock being such a wise brother will edit and send me what he can over as long as he can. 1. Because Max was an adult. 2. He was MAX. 3. Eventually we will be at the end. But for today..there is enough. Miss Darla CW is what your handle is because we have another Miss Darla who also teaches Pre-school. What a great world that has two Miss Darlas. Melanie you are so kind and I have been given comfort by you because, I know, without a doubt, you love my kids. I have felt that for a very long time. Thank you. You have told, me what I expected. That inside my doors he would “decompress” with me. Whew. But I saw him in moments and you verified that he was everything I believed he was. He allowed me see that as he became an adult. I was so blessed to be his mom. I was blessed because there were others that could stand in when I could not. Zach still needs us and I know you will be there for him. Thank you for honoring Max. Even though the messages were for different people. I was able to see him through your words.

I remember Max from preschool (Children's World).....such a bright light in my class. I am saddened by his passing. My condolences to all.

I had the great opportunity and pleasure to meet Max playing slow pitch softball on Friday nights. It hasn't even been a year since I met him, but I could tell he was a VERY special person when I did. I never saw anything but a smile on his face. I was truly blessed to know him even for a short time. My sincerest prayers to his family and friends as I know your loss is great. May God bless you and all of us who had the fortune to cross paths with Max.

Max was the store manager at my home store. Nicest guy I-have ever met and always went above and beyond. Will surely miss him. Thoughts and prayers to his family and Grace. 🙏

Max was a bright light that drew everyone in! His personality, his way with people to make everyone feel like a special person in his life, what a gift. His love of the world around him and the joy he took from that was over the top. Adventure was his middle name. Not really - Robert Paul is his middle name(s) which I always found amusing but now I get it! Larger than life, Max needed more names! He was a person where I would start smiling before he entered the room. A wonderful storyteller...sometimes the story wouldn't be that funny but in his telling, I'd laugh until my ribs hurt!! He worked long and hard hours but if I ever asked for help, he'd be right there as soon as he could. Max, I could go on and on about the amazing human being you were. Our hearts are broken to think we'll have to live our lives without your presence and we will miss you every day of our time on earth. Keep the light burning for us, Max. You have our love until we meet again.

Melanie Beard

I had the pleasure of meeting Max at dinner with Grace and her Mother. You were a terrific guy and heaven has gained an angel for everyone you touched…

Greg Fensom

I know this is such a difficult time. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you, the friends, the family. My deepest condolences.

Carol Barber

Will miss you at our taco Tuesday night. The group will be not be the same.

To Mark and Melanie ~ Words fail me. Please know you're both going to be with me for several days. This is an unfathomable time but, from what I've read, Max lived more in almost 30 years than most live in 60; and set an amazing example of what humanity can be. I truly wish you well.

Sheri McCall

Our thoughts and prayers to all the family and friends who knew and loved Max. We know he was an exceptionally gifted gentleman who lived others, life and the Lord. We send our sympathy and love to you all.
