Mark A. Bader (Max) , age 67, went to meet the Almighty creative power of the universe on Friday the 13th of January, 2023. The spray boys finally got him with cancer and now he knows the truth.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Chuck and Gealdine Bader, his brothers, Paul, John, and Dave, and his brother-in-law Bill Anderson. Max is survived by his sisters, Chris Zerbi and Terri Anderson, his brother Mike, and several nieces and nephews.
Max graduated from Ludington High School. He was a paratrooper in the army in the 509th. airborne division, where he proudly served his country in Italy and Turkey with his true brethren, who know his heart and soul.
Max loved traveling in the UP with his brother Dave, hanging out with his brothers in the 509th at their reunions, coin collecting, listening to music with his 555-album collection from Abba to ZZ Top, growing botanical herbs, playing blackjack at Little River, and his esoteric teachings and values. His someday was here and it was super cool.
A military burial ceremony will be held at a later date in spring/summer at Great Lakes National Cemetery in Holly, MI. Memorial contributions can be given to Hospice.
