My Uncle Max,
A rainbow on a rainy day, a light inside a dark room, A smile put on a sad face, A life that was lived with a coat of happiness. So many memories, you were loved lots and will always be missed. Love little Cath xx

A lovely man who was always laughing and provided never ending joy and enthusiasm

particularly while operating endless canal locks in appalling weather conditions.

There was only one rule:

Never let Max Steer the boat!

Max belting out Auld Lang Syne in his usual fashion - loud and with extreme gusto! A great guy sorely missed by all in the McCarthy Family.
