It is with great sadness that the Waters family announce the peaceful passing of Max Waters OAM on Tuesday February 4 in Port Macquarie.
Max may be fondly remembered by locals as he was a long term resident of Port Macquarie and had links to the Wauchope area through his work with the local paper many years ago and his association with the Wauchope-Bonny Hills Surf Lifesaving Club.
He was recognised with an OAM in 1999 for services to surf lifesaving. In January 2015, Max's wife, Patricia Waters received the OAM on Australia Day for her amazing dedication to Port Macquarie's Flamin' Dragons club and the Catholic Women's League of Australia.
Max's family will hold a private cremation. Details of a memorial service will be advised at a future date.
