Max Martinez Binghamton university death: In preparation of beloved Max Martinez funeral, a GoFundMe page to cover the funeral expenses for his family and any other cost that they may incur has been launched.
And in an outpouring of love, the page has raised over $30,000 of the targeted $15,000 target in less than two hours.
A senior philosophy, politics and law major from New York City, N.Y. Binghamton University student Max Martinez unexpectedly lost his life February 28, 2020.
The tribute on his GoFundMe page reads:
Yesterday we lost the greatest soul any of us have ever known. Max was the definition of an incredible person; he had the ability to make light of every situation and was the happiest, most go-lucky person who never failed to bring positive energy.
His personality, smile, and laugh were infectious. Anyone who ever spent more than 30 seconds with Max felt a deep bond of friendship and love for him.
There is no one who could brighten your day or do something to make you laugh better than Max. He was beloved by everyone. It was impossible to go anywhere with Max without everyone in the room trying to talk to him.
Max brought an energy that I can confidently say, for everyone, is something that cannot be duplicated.
We will all miss Max for the rest of our lives, but we all have enough wonderful, funny, happy memories of him to last us multiple lifetimes.
We want to donate this money to cover the funeral expenses for his family and any other cost that they may incur.
Max, we will love you forever, you touched all of us in ways that cannot be explained in words.
Rest easy, beautiful soul.
