Maxwell Martin

June 8, 1996 — June 25, 2022

Middleton / Lodi

Maxwell Clarence Martin, 26, of Middleton/Lodi, died June 25, 2022, due to complications of Covid-19.    He was born June 8, 1996.  Max is the son of Michael and Susan Martin and the brother of Seth Martin (Portage/Lodi).  He attended Lodi Schools through his Sophomore Year in High School. While attending Lodi Schools he participated in wrestling as well as cross county and band.  Max transferred to Waunakee High School because of greater musical opportunities and graduated Cum Laude in 2014.  Max attended UW-Madison majoring in Conservation Biology along with a certificate in Sustainability.

Max enjoyed music, both listening to and performing.  He started Suzuki Violin at the very young age of 3 1/2 years old and continued to play his whole life.  Max was in the Wisconsin Youth Symphony Orchestras (WYSO) for five years and worked his way to achieve first chair in each level.  Max also participated in several of the Waunakee HS ensembles and orchestra.  His talent, dedication and enjoyment of playing his violin will not be forgotten.  The Martin family will be creating a Wisconsin Youth Symphony Orchestras - Max Martin Scholarship Fund.
Because of hard work, dedication and service to others, Max earned the rank of Eagle Scout at age 13.  Only 4% of Scouts have earned this rank. His Eagle project was to develop the Okee Bay Lake access at Madeline Summers Park near the Okee Schoolhouse.  This project helped to open up a viewing area for all to enjoy.

He also enjoyed scuba diving in the Caribbean with his brother and dad as well as hunting, both out west and on the family’s hunting land. Max enjoyed the outdoors and all that nature provided, including hiking, kayaking, snowmobiling and ATVing.  Max also loved and cared for his sweet cat Buku and all of the family dogs and many puppies that were born throughout the years.

Max will always be remembered for his kindness and generosity.  He loved to have deep conversations on a variety of topics.  The love he had for family and close friends was most important to him and the love he received from others was never taken for granted.

Max is survived by and deeply loved by his parents, Michael and Susan and his brother Seth.  He also leaves his Grandmother Audrey Martin of Lodi. Max will be deeply missed by many Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and special friends.

Maxwell was cremated at Cress Funeral Home Middleton, WI.  There will be a Celebration of Love on Sunday, August 14 from 11 am – 2 pm.  The location of this gathering is Durward’s Glen Retreat & Conference Center W11876 McLeisch Rd, Baraboo, WI 53913.  Please come and share your love of Max in this beautiful, peaceful setting.
