Max Neverman was born in Neillsville June 15, 1874, the son of Clark and Johanna Neverman, poineer settlers in this locality. He passed his entire life here, passing away November 2, 1932, at the age of 58 years, 4 months and 17 days. In early life he learned the carpenter trade and became especially skillful as a lather and shingler, his services being called for in this line in the city and far out into the country.

He was a kind hearted, generous man and never spoke ill of anyone.

He is survived by five children: Gyril and Meade at home; Louis at Waukesha; Irma, Mrs. Harry Rossman, at Waukesha, and Margaret, a senior in high school at home. He leaves also 4 grandchildren and three sisters; Louise in Chicago, Adeline in Los Angeles, and Ella at Jump River, Wis. The funeral was held Saturday afternoon at the Schiller Funeral home, Rev. Vornholt officiating.

Shalsbeger, Jump River; Mrs. Ethel Hagenson of Chili; Mr. and Mrs. Melvin Nelson of Orfordville; Mr. and Mrs. Fred Rossman of Eau Claire.
