VALE Max Wil­son

Australasian Timber - - ASSOCIATION -

IT IS with much sad­ness we an­nounce the pass­ing of one of our tim­ber in­dus­try stal­warts after a bat­tle with cancer.

Max was a tim­ber man for over 55 years and will be re­mem­bered by many of the peo­ple he came into con­tact with in the ‘80’s and ‘90’s then fi­nally do­ing his own thing when he took over the tim­ber busi­ness of M K Spence & Son up at Sil­van in the Dan­de­nong’s. After 10 years Max sold up to take things a lit­tle eas­ier and then joined the TMA Tim­ber Ad­vi­sory Ser­vice (now the Tim­berHub) as an ad­vi­sor in 2005 un­til he re­tired a few months ago. He also loved his golf, tak­ing the dog for a walk and watch­ing his beloved Essendon AFL team. Max was also a long stand­ing and ac­tive mem­ber of Mel­bourne Hoo Hoo Club 217.

Max will be re­mem­bered for his no-non­sense, in­for­mal but very knowl­edge­able ap­proach to look­ing after vis­i­tors, phone enquiries to the Tim­ber Cen­tre show­room. Many a young tim­ber em­ployee will have felt Max’s ques­tion “Are you lis­ten­ing to me now, young fella? “

Our thoughts and prayers are with Pam, Amanda, Dean and fam­ily.

Farewell Max – “diggedadiggedadiggeda “!!!

Sin­cerely, Eric Siegers
