    I am very sorry for your loss. I taught water aerobics at the YMCA of Dodge County and Max was always there in the pool. Although he didn’t do the water classes, he loved walking the lazy river and was a joy to chat with. He will be missed

    Mark, Tom, Mike, Nancella

    I want to tell you how much Max meant to the YMCA of Dodge County. I met your dad about 14-15 years ago when we were located downtown Beaver Dam. Your dad at that time came to the Y as an outlet, to relax, meet people and to see all the smiling faces around the Y. He obviously loved the kids! Max and I worked together with Camp Jorn on the sponsorship program for camp, and also on the new YMCA. Your dad was very generous to us, but his friendship meant as much. It was difficult for me to tell him I was leaving for another Y job in 2008 after we had built such a great relationship and building for our community. I just wanted you to know that he had a huge impact on me as a person and a professional. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Rob Johnson, CEO for the YMCA of Dodge County 2001-2008, now at the Kettle Moraine YMCA in West Bend, WI.
