H. Max Daley, 96, died Saturday morning, November 23, 2019 in Forest Grove, Oregon. Memorial services will be held on December 14, 2019 at Parkside Fellowship (formerly First Baptist Church), Beaverton, Oregon.

                Graveside services with Full Military Honors under the direction of the United States Navy were held on Wednesday, November 27, 2019 at the Willamette National Cemetery.

                Max Daley was born February 2, 1923 in Fairfield, Iowa, the son of Charles Frank Daley and Helen (Halferty) Daley. He was raised and received his education in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

                He served in the United States Navy throughout World War II, and in the United States Air Force during the Korean Conflict.

                He attended Baylor University and the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, and received his Bachelor of Arts degree from the Regents of the University of the State of New York.

                Max was united in marriage to Louise Cox on February 28, 1952 in Waco, Texas. They celebrated their 67th Wedding Anniversary this past February.

Max moved to Washington in 1957, where he pastored churches in Anacortes, Longview, and Lakewood. He relocated again in 1965 to pastor churches in Pocatello, Idaho and Marrero, Louisiana. Upon returning to the northwest, he pastored churches in Lebanon and Roseburg, Oregon.

Max served for ten years as Director of Missions for Yakima Valley and Coulee Baptist Associations in Washington. Throughout his ministry, Max’s great strength was helping churches work through conflict.

He retired as Director of Missions in 1987 and accepted a call to pastor in Lincoln City, Oregon, serving also as volunteer Director of Missions for Coast Baptist Association. After retiring as pastor and director of missions, he worked for the 2000 U.S. Census. He also volunteered as a Hospice Chaplain and bus driver for the Lincoln County Council on Aging.

Max moved to the Beaverton, Oregon area in 2003. At age 89, Max accepted a call to serve as interim pastor for a brief time.

                He was a member of The Crossing Fellowship in Forest Grove, Oregon.

                Among his special interests, he enjoyed woodworking and wood carving, gardening, reading, learning new words and writing poetry. Max also loved history and studying the Bible. He always loved to sing, no matter how it sounded, and he loved telling stories and making people laugh.

                Max was preceded in death by his parents, Charles and Helen Daley, his sister, Charlene Payne, his brothers, Bruce Daley, Dan Daley, two brothers who died in infancy, and his son, Bill Daley.

                Survivors include his wife, Louise Daley, one brother, Robert Daley, and three children, Glenn Daley, Evelyn Reader, and Paul Daley.

                Also surviving are his grandchildren Jayme Sanchez, Brianna Waldridge, Erin Chavez-Figueroa, Phoenix Quinn Daley, Kenneth Daley, Ryan Daley, and Serena Daley, as well as six great-grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.

                The family suggests that remembrances may be contributions to the North American Mission Board, P.O. Box 116543, Atlanta, GA 30368, or, in his memory.
