H. T. and Marjorie Powell Treadwell and died peacefully in his sleep March 11, 2020.

As a walk-on at Stephen F. Austin, Max played on the 1949, 1950 and 1951 football team winning all conference his senior year. After earning his Bachelor and Masters degree on the same day, he joined the Navy in 1953.

Max was quite the character and lived a colorful life. By his own admission, "He never met a mirror he didn't like". He was fluent in English, Spanish, and profanity, each of which you would be exposed to, briefly after meeting him.
He was preceded in death by his parents, his brother H. T. "Bubba" Treadwell, his
nephews, Tim Treadwell and Tommy Treadwell.
He is survived by his daughter Belinda Warren and fiancé, Lonnie Stone of Lufkin, and son, Vince Treadwell and wife, Stacey of Lufkin. Five grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
