Jackie was a Christian by faith. He was the former owner of Max’s Clubhouse and for almost fifty years he was the owner of Maxie Home Service in Seymour. Jackie was a very social man that loved people and would do whatever he could to help those in need. He never met a stranger and had a smile that would light up a room. He had a huge impact on the people he would serve with his ethics and workmanship. He loved to tell people that he was “a jack of all trades and master of none”, yet he was an excellent craftsman. He took great pride on his lawn and making sure that is was meticulously manicured to his standards. Family was his world and of all the things he enjoyed, at the top of the list was sitting with his grandbabies by the firepit roast marshmallows and going to the zoo. He was a beloved husband, father and Papaw and will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved him and each life that he touched in his own special way.

On September 15, 1973, he married the love of his life, Rhonda (Marcum) Maxie of Seymour, Indiana. He is also survived by his one son, Jackie Maxie Jr. and his wife April of Seymour, Indiana and two daughters, Geneva Atwood and her husband James of Seymour, Indiana and Kymberli Taggart and her Partner Larry Harrison of Brownstown, Indiana. One brother, Paul Maxie and his wife Brenda of Connersville, Indiana. One sister, Sandra Hardin and her husband Gary of Everton, Indiana. Thirteen grand children and ten great grandchildren with one on the way that affectionately called him “Papaw”.

He was preceded in death by his parents and two sisters, Lois Hunter and Alma Faye Maxie.
