Maxwell Ryan Romeri, age 36, of Marshall, Michigan, died unexpectedly on March 30, 2020. He was born on November 4, 1983 in Monterey, California, to Greg Peter and Kathleen D. (Simpkin) Romeri.

Max lived in Germany and in Georgia until the age of eight, while his father served in the United States Army.

In December of 2012 they moved to Marshall, where he worked several local factory jobs until he was hired on at C&S Carton in 2018.

Max enjoyed his family, friends and the outdoors. He loved his kids and singing karaoke. He had an amazing voice, some thought he sounded like hootie.
