Max Brown 1950-2009
23 November 2009
Liz Lynch remembers Max Brown, a people-loving University porter who was 'one of the most optimistic people I ever knew'.
Max was one of the most optimistic people I knew; his glass always seemed to be half full rather than half empty. Even after his cancer returned Max never gave up hope and wanted to continue working.
He was a keen follower of sport including horse-racing, cricket and football. He loved his music, and I am told his two favourites were the Sex Pistols and Bob Dylan, so his taste in music, like his collection of hats, could never be described as boring.
Max retired on ill health grounds at the end of September 2009 after a long battle with cancer and passed away on Wednesday 18 November.
Max was an asset to our team and the University and he will be sorely missed by all who knew him.
Our condolences have been passed onto his wife Lyn and his two children for their sad loss.
