Unhappy Cappers Mall mourns one of our own and one of the orginal members - RIP

Hi everyone:

I wanted to let you all know that we have lost one of our own.

Rambler333 (Dan) was one of the original members here at Cappers Mall. He was a very nice guy whom many of us got to know on the board. Most of you know his long battle with Cancer and he never stopped battling but time finally ran out.

Rambler's son is also a member here (mudville) and Eric (mudville) could use a thought and a prayer.

Dan was one of my favorite members of all time. Many of you knew him as the Parlay Man. One thing I new for sure is he was a GOOD MAN in life.

Cappers Mall was a place where he could come and get away. I am glad he was able to do that at times.


-----------------------------------

Below is the obituary.

Daniel Harold Maxim Jr.

WINTHROP -- Daniel Harold Maxim Jr., 58, died Thursday, April 20, 2006, at MaineGeneral Rehabilitation and Nursing Care at Gray Birch, in Augusta.

Danny was born in Augusta on July 20, 1947, the son of Daniel Harold and Marjorie (Houseworth) Maxim.

He grew up in Winthrop and graduated from Winthrop High School in 1965. He served in Vietnam with the Air Force, achieving the rank of sergeant.

In 1968, he married Anita Cammack. They later moved to New Jersey for two years before returning to Maine in the early 1970s.

Danny took over and operated Maxim's Supply Company, a well-known family business in Winthrop for many years. He later owned and operated Maxim's Small Engine Repair in Winthrop.

He was an active member of Alfred W. Maxwell American Legion Post 40, where he held numerous posts and positions over the years.

Danny was a great father and friend and would do anything for anyone. He especially enjoyed time spent with his family, and spent many hours coaching his children in various sports activities.

He also enjoyed gardening, playing pool and collecting baseball cards, and he was a big Red Sox fan.

Danny was predeceased by his wife of 37 years, Anita (Cammack) Maxim, on July 30, 2005.

He will be deeply missed by his son, Eric Maxim, and his wife, Katy, of Durham; his daughters, Tresa Maxim of Winthrop and Kristi Marschall and her husband, James, of Readfield; his mother, Marjorie Maxim, of Winthrop; his sister, Sally Gilley and her husband, Ken, of Winthrop; and his granddaughter, Alyson Jay Marschall, of Readfield.

Donations in his memory may be made to Dan Maxim Athletic Fund, c/o Alfred W. Maxwell American Legion Post 40, P.O. Box 342, Winthrop, ME 04364.

Relatives and friends may visit from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday, April 24, at Roberts Funeral Home, 62 Bowdoin St., Winthrop, where a celebration of Danny's life will be held 11 a.m. Tuesday, April 25. Burial will follow in Glenside Cemetery, Winthrop.

Never had the pleasure of dealing with him but from what I see from alot of people that I have come to respect here that have posted this was somebody that alot of us should try be like a truly GOOD human being. Rest in peace and my prayers go out to the whole family.

I had a few interactions with Dan over my time with Cappersmall, including taking over his fantasy baseball team here.

All my dealings with him were extremely positive and his attitude always was upbeat, despite his declining health.

My thoughts and prayers to his family

RIP Dan

My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

Feels like I lost a friend even though I only knew Dan from reading his posts and enjoying his parlays. That's what makes cappersmall a special place but it hurts today.
