I never knew Max, but from reading these messages it's clear that he was well loved and respected by many of you.

Condolences to Dora and the family.

I only met Max once and the guy was so friendly and a true legend in the MINI community. My thoughts and those of everyone at Nottinghamshire MINI Club at this time go to Dora and the family.

My memories of Max are as one of the nicest guys I've had the pleasure of meeting. I think back to when I first joined MINI2, and remember how welcome he made me feel then, and the banter I had with him at that time. He always made a point of speaking to me both online, and in person whenever I saw him on any runs. His passion, enthusiasm and friendliness will be truly missed by all that knew him, Particular condolences go out to Dora and his family at this sad time.

Rest in peace Max. We're all thinking of you!

A true gent

Max was oe of the nicest people I have ever met and he was great fun to be around too.

He will be missed within the Mini community and all we can do is offer our love and support to Dora and his family.

I am completely shocked and saddened to hear this devastating news.

RIP big fella!

When I nod my head...... hit it!

Such a shame that Max, Dora and some M2 members fell out . I've tried searching for some of the better old threads with Max's input but they've all been deleated. Knowing Max I dare say that was what HE wanted. However, its robbed me of the inputs of a good friend who I'd lost touch with.

Do you remember the 'Buy Max on Ebay' thread? Just a photo of him in a fridge magnet. Wouldnt let anyone out bid him though. Or all the 'GGR is best' bollox he was always going on about. So anti 'Works' conversions.


Max had a certain online personality that just didnt show in real life.. He really was a very loveable old gent. He fell out seriously with several people on here, and it went too far to be recovered. Pride seemed to get in the way. However, Malcolm was a real Mini enthusiast, and real nice bloke and so removed from what occurred on here. His life was in turmoil when the incedent occurred and I'm sure played a part with what occurred.

I know Max was a very giving person. He was seriously involved in the Falklands war in his younger days from what I recall him saying, and I never doubted him.

He needs a proper Mini send off.

I never had the privilege to meet Max; however it seems he was a popular man and will be missed by many. This re-affirms that life is short and we should enjoy every drop we are given and don't be concerned about trivia in life.

Heartfelt thoughts with Dora and the family. Chloe. x

Briefly met Max on one of my many JCC outings this was at Thruxton and Dora announced to me oh me and Max are an item by the way. Remember discussing tyres as I had just had a new set.
Agree its a shame to dwell on the bickering but this kind of thing shows there's no real point falling out over Mini Clubs and Forums etc.

Condolences to Dora and Max's family.

very sad news - I will miss our occasional chats and banter between our 2 clubs.

Love or loathe him Max was one hell of a character we will all miss

Makes me chuckle to remember the day I loaded up MINI2 to see a picture of his Labrador with a huge rampant rabbit it's in it's mouth like a bone. Needless to say the post didn't last long - but that was Max - always close to the bone, out to shock but always a heart of gold underneath.

Best wishes to Dora and Max's family at this very sad time.

Max was a larger than life character.

And that's why I shall miss him all the more.

I last saw him on August Bank Holiday when we went to his pad on the canal. He loved his boat, and was very happy among his new found canal buddies.

He emailed me about a month ago telling me the interior of his boat had been ransacked - he had been paid a visit by waterside wildlife. Not for Max a visit by a water vole - but a bloody great mink!

And that was the last I heard from him - with another extraordinary tale.

The Mini community is poorer for his passing.

There was a time when Max and I were very close, sadly we had a few differences lately which left us to drift apart. I had an enormous amount of respect for Max and was glad to have him as a friend. His stories, witty remarks and banter were a source of huge entertainment for a great many of us.

There are a few people left on here who may remember the birth of SCNM and the weeknight meets on the outskirts of basingstoke. The mighty imp, Grings, Dabe, Tony*t3, Married Blonde etc, all honking around the hampshire countryside before a swift pint and a chat.

The good times I shared with Max far outweigh the bad times, and it's those good times that I will remember. Thank you mate for enriching all of our MINI experiences. Rest in peace. Love and thoughts go to Dora and all of Max's family.

Chris
