Tio Chino was the youngest of my uncles and the most handsome in my little girl’s eyes. He always had a smile and was so kind. His birthday was one day before mine so I always thought of him that day. Hilda, Janice, Max, and Denise, you are not alone in your grief. I share in your loss. May the Lord comfort you. Vasthi

Truly his smile and contagious laugh will be terribly missed Tio Max was the only person in my life that ever gave me a nick name. I was always “Pepita” to him and I have always cherished it in my heart. My heartfelt prayers are with you all. I am always here for you.

It hurt my heart to learn of the passing of my dear uncle Max. He was a smart, funny, and loving man who always gave of himself. I’ll never forget all he did for me; I am the man I am today partially because of him. To my aunt Hilda and cousins Janice, Max, and Denise we all share your loss and are devastated.  We pray God comforts you all and heals your hearts. Uncle Max, May God embrace you and welcome you to your forever home; you are missed. We love you!Steve, Rebecca. & Reina Arbona

My Pop will forever be one of the strongest men I have ever known. I cannot express how much I respect and appreciate his presence in my life. He was my most trusted mentor and spiritual advisor. He had an unshakeable, ever-present faith and lived such a selfless life, always helping others. His wise words always gave great comfort and advice. He indeed was a great man and will forever be in my heart. In my heart of hearts, I know he is at peace in heaven. I will always love him!
With great love,
Lexie

Your family is always in my heart. When I woke up on Thursday, I looked at the sky because it was so amazing around 5ish. I looked to the heavens, and I said thank you to whoever gave me this moment. Wow. Your dad obviously made his presence known in heaven with that sky. 
My sincerest condolences,

Life is fragile and requires us to be strong, we fight for the love of dreams and for life. Max, your strong and caring essence remains among us. Your great example stays with me too.

God has received you in all his glory.

My heart breaks for you all, but I know the heavens have gain an Angel they needed! Max was so incredibly kind, friendly and had the best smile! He would go out of the way to help anytime and he did love his family so much!!! I could hear that when he told stories about all of them. I only had the pleasure of knowing Max for 6 years, but wow what an amazing man and his talent with woodworking and remodeling his home were just beautiful. Hugs, love and prayers to all his family now!! I do pray that all the amazing memories you created bring you more laughter and smiles then tears!!

Uncle Max, I have always respected and looked up to you… even as a little kid.  You were firm but full of love and care.  You were a hard worker and did everything you could to give your family everything they need and more.  Even though I haven’t seen you in a long time, you were and will always be in my heart.  Thanks for helping my family out when we went through very difficult times.  Thanks for the laughs and love.  You are with Jesus now, and I am thankful to God for that.  I look forward to seeing you again one day.

Our deepest sympathy at your moment of deepest sorrow. With our love and prayers.
