Max E. Brubaker, age 81, of Chrisman, went home to be with the Lord on Thursday, July 14, 2011 at Paris Community Hospital after a two year battle with cancer. Max was born September 8, 1929 in Wabash County, Indiana to Ralph D. Brubaker and Mary A. Watson Brubaker. He graduated from high school in Huntington County, Indiana. After graduation he served in the Army during the Korean conflict, most of which was served in Korea. After his time in the service, he married Francess (Jean) Nowlin Brubaker in Lawton, Oklahoma on October 19, 1954. To this union four sons were born: Nathan (Mary Ann) Brubaker of Oklahoma City, OK, Brad Brubaker of rural Chrisman, IL, Ralph (Rhonda) Brubaker of rural Monticello, IL and Raymond (Amy) Brubaker of Paris, IL. They also have six granddaughters: Katy Brubaker, Hayley Brubaker, Allison Brubaker, Gabrielle Brubaker, Betsy Brubaker, and Megan Brubaker Galeener; five grandsons: Clinton Brubaker, Calvin Brubaker, Riley Brubaker, Phillip Brubaker and Christopher Brubaker; one great granddaugher Sophia Rose Galeener and one great grandson, Evan Brubaker.

He was preceded in death by his parents, and a brother, Bill Brubaker. Max was a dairy farmer in Huntington County, Indiana before moving the family to Chrisman, Illinois in 1967, where he opened and managed a retail fertilizer outlet. He later became district manager for thirteen retail fertilizer outlets in the East Central Illinois area. After the company sold, he worked with his son in the retail fertilizer business. He also farmed and raised livestock. In his later years, he sold real estate with his wife. Max was a member of the Chrisman First Baptist Church since 1967. He served on the Chrisman School Board for seven years. He had a tremendous work ethic, giving 110% whatever the task or endeavor. He will be dearly missed by his family and friends.
