CHENEY – Slusser, Max E., 87, left on his final trip to be with the Lord September 24, 2010.

Max was a WWII veteran, 36-year Boeing employee, and a devoted father and Papa. His travels across the United States were a highlight of his retirement years. He loved high school sports, especially basketball, and could be found at almost all of his grandchildren’s sporting events, plays, and musical performances. He loved his heritage and his growing up days in Oklahoma and Kansas small towns alongside the railroad. Moved to Cheney, Kansas, in 1937 where he lived out his remaining years. We all will miss his story telling, poems and songs and his sense of humor. Memorial has been established with the Cheney HS club in memory of Max.
