VALE Max Wilson
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
