Max Aubel

Mr. Max Aubel of Addieville, IL departed this life at his home surrounded by his loving family on Tuesday, June 6, 2023 at 1:33 A.M. following a courageous battle against cancer. He had attained the age of 23 years, 10 months and 27 days.

Max was born in Breese, IL on July 9, 1999, the son of Bryan and Patty (nee Urban) Aubel. He was united in marriage to Hannah Harris at his home this past Saturday, June 3rd with family and friends there to celebrate the couple’s special day.

Max was a 2017 graduate of Okawville High School. While in high school, he participated in Track, Model United Nations, and Drama Club. He also served on the Student Council and Student Leadership Team. Max was a manager with the Okawville Rockets Basketball Team and was the public address announcer at all the home basketball games. After graduation, Max followed his calling and enrolled at Harding University in Searcy, AR where he received his Bachelor’s Degree in Bible and Preaching. 

Max served as the minister at the Griffithville Church of Christ in Griffithville, AR until he accepted the call to move west and serve the congregation and the Longmont Church of Christ in Longmont, CO. Max served the church in Colorado for only a short time before his diagnosis and subsequent return to Addieville to begin his fight. After returning home, he attended the Centralia Church of Christ in Centralia, IL. Max’s faith and calling to serve the Lord were an inspiration to many.
