I know I’ll be one of a great many people who have learnt of the death of dear Max Payne with much sadness.
Max’s contributions to helping keep the flag flying for St Catherine’s are legendary and his love of Scarborough is highlighted by his extraordinary photographic documentation of our beautiful resort.
I had known him since his days with Lombards and despite his illness and remarkable recovery, he never failed to stop for a chat.
I know that’s the same way everyone found him, charming, funny, kind and thoroughly selfless. He’ll be much missed by us all.
