Max E. Reese, 93, of Indianapolis, passed away August 14th, 2023. He was born November 22, 1929, in Indianapolis, to parents Emmit and Marguerite (Stewart) Reese.

On July 3, 1951, Max married the love of his life, Helen Edwards. They spent a short honeymoon at Clifty Falls State Park and shared 62 wonderful years hand in hand. Max was a devoted husband and loved traveling with Helen, especially to Vegas, Helen’s favorite. They welcomed three children into the world, and Max took great pride in being a family man and provider.

Max worked as a meat cutter for A&P for many years before retiring. Being the hard worker he was, he then took a job as a driver for JP Morgan/Chase Bank, where he retired a second time. Loving to stay busy, he spent many years assisting his son Tom, at the family muffler shop, and working part time at a golf course.
