In Memory of
Carl Lynn Maxie
-

Carl Lynn Maxie of Magnolia, Texas, passed away at the age of 57 after a courageous fight against Corona Virus on June 8, 2021.  He was born on December 3, 1963 in Many, Louisiana to Carl Maxie and Dorothy Ann Maxie.

After graduating from Jasper High School in Jasper, Texas, Carl enlisted in the United States Army. After 20 years of service, retiring in 2004, he was a successful Sergeant First Class earning many medals such as Meritorious Medal, Army Commendation Medal, Army Achievement Medal (4th Award), Army Good Conduct Medal (6th Award), National Defense Service Medal (3nd Award), National Defense Service Medal (2nd Award), Oversees Service Ribbon (2nd Award), Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, US Army Gold Recruiter Badge with 3 Sapphire Achievement Stars, among many other achievements.  Carl was a fun, loving, spontaneous, courageous Father, Cowboy and Husband.  There was never a time he did not put his children and family first.  Carl and Kathy met many years ago doing what they loved best, dancing, it was from that moment they were inseparable. He was her Cowboy and she was his Sunshine. Carl enjoyed horses, sailing, traveling, protecting our country, and having a good time with his wife, family and friends. No one was a stranger.  There was never a time he was short for words, he enjoyed sharing stories of his past, sharing life experiences and dreaming of the future.  

Carl is survived by his loving wife, Kathleen E. Maxie, son Zachary Lynn Maxie of Magnolia, Texas, step-children Jessica Ramsey and husband William Ramsey of Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri, Charles R. Schneider and wife, Emily Schneider of Livingston, Texas, Patrick Kelley of Moriarty, New Mexico, and Juliana Kelley, Kaylie Vandegaer and Lauren Vandegaer of Magnolia, Texas; 13 grandchildren, Shelbie, Riley, Camden, Preston, Aurora, Maelyn, K’lynn, Benjamin, Evelyn, Ajah, Asah, Patrick, and Aaliyah, sister, Patricia Scariano and brother in-law Frank of Ponchatoula, Louisiana, brother John Maxie of Lufkin, Texas, and nephew Nathan Knouft, nieces Chloe Burke and Taylor Smith and numerous cousins and extended family. 

He is preceded in death by his parents Carl and Dorothy Ann Maxie.

Carl you were definitely one of a kind. We always enjoyed the parties especially when it started to get dull and you would bust out Old country music that know one knew. lol. You will be missed and the stories we will always remember because of the oddities and fiction. Carl stand tall in front of MacArthur for you earned your way into glory. RIP.
