It is with heavy heart that we announce that Maxwell William McMahan, precious son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin, and friend, went to be with his Heavenly Father Saturday, February 16, 2019, at 4:50pm in Treasure Island, Florida from a fatal accident. He was born on August 1, 1998 in St. Petersburg FL. In 2001, he and his family moved to Canton, Georgia. Summer 2018, he returned to St. Petersburg.

He is survived by his father and mother, Jim and Melissa McMahan, two loving sisters, Brooke McMahan-Hendricks and his twin Madison Jane McMahan-Durden, and a long list of precious family members and loving friends. 


While battling severe dyslexia, his mother worked hard helping him succeed in school. Max graduated from Cherokee High School in 2017, where he excelled in his passion, welding, receiving 6 certifications. Although Max raced motocross and played football in his youth, ultimately his love was for the sport of wrestling. Spending 5 years as a youth wrestler coached by his father, then being led by his Cherokee High coaches, he qualified for the state championships throughout high school; also taking 3rd in the state of Georgia two years in a row in free style/Greco wrestling. Max was a natural leader on and off the mat. In his spare time, he enjoyed music, singing, fishing, and a variety of outdoor activities. He had a very kind heart, a quick wit, and was the life of a party. He stood steadfast for his friends and family, always being there in their time of need. He deeply touched not only the lives of all those who knew and loved him, but also people he met in passing. Although we know he is at home with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, he will be dearly missed. If heaven allows, you can rest assured he will always be our angel of protection.

A Celebration of Life will be held at First Baptist Church of Canton, 1 Mission Point, Canton, GA 30114, on Saturday, February 23, 2019 from 3-4pm followed by visitation with family and friends. Memorial donations can be made in lieu of flowers to Cherokee Takedown Club in memory of Max’s love for wrestling.
