The Richard L. Dixon ( Cheryl Warwick) family would like to express our deepest sympathies to your family. We have many fond memories with your family from the Yeocomico Marina campground. I was very blessed and thankful to Max for giving me my first full time job at the insurance office. He was a very kind caring man. Prayers and hugs to Margaret Anne, Bentley, and the rest of your family. God bless you.

Max was very instrumental in the shaping of my career. I loved working with him, and sharing the heritage of the Northern Neck. There was nothing he would not do for me or our family. My thoughts of the past only solidify my memories of our relationship and how much he modeled the definition of a TRUE FRIEND. Blessings to the McKenney Family from Overland Park, Kansas. STEVE WELD
