David “Dave” Maxson, 70, of Williamstown lost his 13-month battle with brain cancer and took his final take off today landing safely in the arms of his LORD and SAVIOR Jesus Christ in Heaven. He was greeted by his parents and many other loved friends and family. He is survived by his wife, Judy (Atzenhofer) at home, 2 children – Matthew (Cynthia), Lydia and Isaac of Merstham, UK, and Melanie, Kyla of Williamstown, 3 brothers and 5 brothers-in-law who loved him dearly.
David was a retired USN aviator and a retired TWA/AA captain. He loved flying and the outdoors but he loved his LORD more and. his desire was all to come to the saving knowledge of accepting Jesus Christ and their Lord and Savior. This was reflected in all he did and said!
