In loving memory of Max Sowden (6th October 2001 – 28th May 2018)

May 28th, 2022

In loving memory of Max Sowden (6th October 2001 – 28th May 2018) Max started St Wilfrid’s in September 2013 and within a very short space of time everyone knew who Max was. He had the ability to fill the room with his personality and he had a way of making people smile no matter how they might have been feeling. Even when he was in trouble it was impossible to stay cross with him. Max also had a very caring and sentimental side: he would notice when people needed a friend and he would take them under his wing no matter who they were and no matter what anyone else thought of them. Max had a smile and a personality that will live on in St Wilfrid’s forever.
