Mount Gilead, Ohio

Maxton Lee Whitehead, Jr., age 21, of Mount Gilead passed away on Monday, October 14, 2013 at the OSU Medical Center in Columbus.

Max was born on July 30, 1992 in Mount Dora, Florida, the son of Maxton Lee Whitehead, Sr. and Deena Michele (McBee) Wickware. He graduated from Highland High School and was working in home improvement spraying insulation.

Max loved to eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, you see, driving around in his Camaro made him as happy as can be, watching anime cartoons, and playing war, playing with his dog, “Fast Eddy” which he adored.

You might even find him laying on the ground looking at stars, maybe he was thinking he’d like to go to Mars, he had a crab pillow he called “Pee Tree”, he thought it was his guardian angel, you see.

Max loved to help handicap kids in need, he was someone special indeed, now he is dancing with the angels and Jesus in Heaven above, waiting for all the one’s he left behind and loved. Rest in Peace Max, We love you…thoughts by Aunt Linda Huggins.

Max is survived by his parents: Deena (David) Wickware and Maxton Lee (Lori) Whitehead, Sr.; his siblings: Doug and Phillip Craven, Ashley Pukansky, Dustin, Heather, Alan and Eric Wickware, Caleb and Cameron Conant and Malorie Whitehead; Grandparents: Patricia and Ben McBee, Janet Hauk-Matson, Patricia Conant and Jack Styer; and many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

Visitation will be held on Saturday, October 19, 2013 at the Craven-Snyder Funeral Home, 67 North Main St., Mount Gilead from 12PM to 3PM; Funeral services will immediately follow at 3PM; Burial will be in the Fulton Cemetery.
