  1. So sorry to hear this. We were classmates an later, neighbors. My daughter’s first babysitting job was for Cindy and Max. The kids rode the bus together, and swam in their families pool. Deepest sympathies to the family.

  2. I don’t know what to say!! What a terrible loss. Max had a beautiful soul and loved his family and friends more than most think is even possible!!
    Neighbors at Sandy Pines for over 10 years, watched our children play and grow together. Jeff Grooters played softball with max for many years! SO MANY MEMORIES with Max, Cindy and our families. Rest In Peace my friend.
    I’ve never known a family that shared so much love ❤️

    • Prayers are being said for the Sussdorf family!
      They were are country neighbors for years and Max was in the same cruising town group when he met Cindy. As time goes on and family’s are started I didn’t get much of a chance to run into him.
      But over the last few years I did have the privilege to cross paths with him and
      we talked about what’s going on in our lives and of course about the old days and our cars then! and of course Max’s Firebird.
      That meant and means a lot to me.
      Wishing all of the Sussdorf family to find peace and comfort some how through this unfortunate time of sorrow!
      Tim and Colleen Lewis
