  1. Michelle Coleman says:

    Tom and I will truly miss Max. Max was not just a coworker with my husband but, was one of my husband’s true friends. A day never went by where I didn’t hear the name Max mentioned by my husband. Our hearts are broken as there is a deep void in this world and our hearts are breaking for his wife and family.

  2. Nitin Kulkarni says:

    My condolences to the Mattin family. Max was my colleague in the Network Engineering team at Navy Federal Credit Union (NFCU). I had known Max since 2020, and I thought I knew him well enough, but after reading his obituary… I have to admire his wonderful and amazing life! Max had found true nirvana – serve his country, believe in and follow his religion, take care of his family and friends, spend time with his grandchildren, work hard, make the best of life, not judge others, and always give that helping hand. Some individuals are easily forgotten, while others are always remembered. Max is one of those individuals that I will always remember and cherish for his personal qualities and life ambitions! Someone who did it all! Take care Mattin family!

  7. Don Benson says:

    To Glenda and Max’s family.. A dear friend Max was. Been a long time that we talked. Always remembered the good times we shared in school wrestling and playing football. The last time I sat in the football stadium at Delta watching my son play and having a conversation with our Coach Harold Rhodes, remembering the undefeated season our freshman year. The words Harold spoke of Max,”Max was a leader”. As a veteran I thank him for his service to this great nation. Rest in peace.
    May God comfort you.
