Max Ray Wireman of Warsaw, Indiana passed away unexpectedly on Monday, October 12, 2020 at his residence at the age of 77.
He was born on November 14, 1942 in Waldo, Kentucky one of eight children born to Lillie Mae (Williams) Wireman and J.B. Wireman. On September 8, 1972 he was married to Anna May (Jefferson) Wireman, who survives.
Max worked for many years at Clausing Manufacturing in Warsaw and later he worked as a machinist at Zimmer, Inc. and retired from there at the age of 55. One of his favorite pass times was watching women’s college basketball and deer hunting, especially in the Packerton area. Max enjoyed hunting so much that over the years he accumulated so many antlers that they were mounted everywhere around the house and even in the shed. Fishing was another favorite of his, he was actually a fisherman when he first met his wife Anna. His favorite spot to fish was at Snake Island in Winona Lake, Indiana and everyone knew he loved to garden as well. Max loved to play with his grandchildren and had a particularly good time whenever he was with Journey and K.P. Throughout his life he experienced some hard times and he shared plenty of good times with his family. Max will be forever missed by his family and many friends.
