    Galaway Family,

    On behalf of Boeing (as well as old McDonnell Douglas employees), we will dearly miss Max. Those of us who knew Max over the years remember him for his diligence and kindness. Max is a class guy who lived a quiet life — hard working, honest, and devoted to his family. Our sympathies are with you.

    To the Galaway family
    I only knew Max in the work environment at Boeing. We worked together for a number of years on a couple of different programs, and I have to say that Max was truly a pleasure to work with. He was hard working and considerate and was always there for you if you needed something or were having a problem. And, Max was just a nice guy. Though he was very diligent about work, he was still quick with a joke and a smile. He was a wealth of knowledge and if there was a question, he always seemed to know where to look. If there was a job to do, Max got it done without complaint, on time, and done right every time. The world needs more people like Max. He will live in my memory and I’m thankful to have known him.
