    Maxie and I were classmates at SCHS and Boy Scouts together. I have special memories of talking with his mother in the Jewelry store after school. Rest in peace my friend.

    I want to offer my Condolences to Pat and the rest of the Alderson family. I graduated with Maxie in 1959 and was a teammate of Maxie on the Portland High School football team. We joined the McKendree Methodist Church in Portland at the same time and I consider Maxie a very dear friend. Maxie will be missed.
