Kenneth Max Hale Jr., 63, of Beaumont, Texas, passed away on Saturday November 4, 2017. Max was born July 28, 1954 in Selma, Alabama to V. Irene and Kenneth Max Hale Sr.

Max loved to cheer on the Dallas Cowboys and Oklahoma Sooners. He also enjoyed playing a round of golf and coaching baseball to young people. Max was a member of Phi Kappa Theta at Lamar University where he made lifelong friendships.

If you approached him for help he would say "Not a problem" without a second thought; of course his own chores would fall into the "I'll get around to it" category.

Max is survived by his wife of 42 years, Cheryl; son Kevin Hale; daughter Kristin West and her husband James; grandchildren Kyle West, Kavin West, Kinslee West, Penelope Mulhollan and her husband Raymond, Emberlee Hale and Atalyn Hale; great-grandchild Brannon Mulhollan; and sister Kimberly LoBue.

Max was preceded in death by his parents; daughter Jennifer Elizabeth; and sister Katherine Buck.

A visitation for Max will be held Tuesday, November 7, 2017 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM at Forest Lawn Funeral Home. A graveside service will occur on Wednesday, November 8, 2017 at 10:00 AM at Forest Lawn Memorial Park.

Serving as pallbearers are Kevin Hale, James West, Daryl Williams, Greg Kendall, Charles Calhoun, and Josh Youngblood.
