Jim “Max” Maxwell Beaver of West Grove, PA passed away on Wednesday, June 6, 2018, in hospice at Jenner’s Pond, Jennersville, PA.
Born in Sunbury, PA, he was the son of Marjorie Lorraine (Spitler) Beaver and the late Jim C. Beaver. In addition to his mother, he is survived by one sister, Andrea L. Tidlow and her husband John of Abingdon, VA, and his nephew Graham Tidlow and niece Jillian Tidlow. He was predeceased by one sister, Tamara Jill Beaver.
Max was a member of Avon Grove High School Class of ’69. He graduated from Penn State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre. He was an actor, stagehand, stage combat instructor and a proud member of the Actors’ Equity Association and the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees Local 284.
Max enjoyed theatre, film and telling stories. The trivia of life became high adventure when he told it. He loved history and would have been gratified to know that he died on D-Day. Known as “Jimmy” in his early years, “Jim” and then professionally as “Max” , he was a kind and generous man whose friends were dear to him. He cherished the bonds with family, college roommates, former wife Kate, lady-love Cyndi and his IATSE brothers and sisters.
As per Max’s wishes, his body was donated to science. There will be no funeral. Interment services will be private.
