Max Baumgartner Obituary, Death – We wish to express our deepest condolences to his family and friends as we share the news of Max Baumgartner’s demise. He served as our former Executive Director. Max served not only as our Executive Director but also as a close friend and as a leader within our local church community. He served as a role model for many of us and was a pillar of wisdom in our community.
His conviction in the goodness of God was unshakeable, and it showed in everything he did, from the conversations he had to the choices he made to the way he smiled at us. Max has a singular talent for endowing others with a sense that they are respected and heard. Through his efforts and the generous nature that stemmed from his love for Jesus, he was able to make a positive difference in the lives of a great number of people.
The legacy of Max will undoubtedly continue to motivate and direct us in the future. While we are saddened by his passing, we also take this time to celebrate the extraordinary life he had and the myriad ways in which he was a model of the Savior who made this world a better place.
And even in the midst of our suffering, we find consolation in the biblical proverb that says “To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.” We are filled with joy today because we know that Max has finally been able to see Jesus, the person who has been the focus of his faith. During this difficult time, we want Max’s wife, Gina, and their children, Jessica, Andrew, and Susan, as well as their families, to know that they are in our thoughts and prayers.
