Mifflin Ice Hockey
Mifflin Ice Hockey
Darren's son Damon played on Mifflin's Ice Hockey team in 2003/2004.  Proving that it's a small world, Dean Stremba and Eric Groscup were also on the same team.  Dean's Dad, Steve, is my team partner at work, and Eric's Dad, Tom, used to be one of the supervisors of the department that I'm in before he left to form his own engineering firm.  Eric is in the top row of kids all the way to the left, Dean is in the top row of kids 3rd from the left, Damon is on the far right, Steve is top left, and Tom is the guy without a hat on the right.  The Mifflin Hockey team has their own website.  CLICK HERE for more information.

In the senior yearbook, Darren lists "Engineering" as his future career path.

Exciting Things
Since H.S.:
Went to South Dakota, drove to Florida and had a child (not all at the same time, and not necessarily in that order).
Ideas for future reunions: Have it in Wintergreen, Virginia
High school...the last time being "typical" was a significant accomplishment.

Darren, do you mind if I belch my Italian Sandwich in your face while we do this?

Which is a better title: "Nice Hair, Guys!" or "Didn't they feed you in high school"?

Would it have been so hard to close the car door before this picture was taken?

Chris Mal Notes:
Darren was a driver in my wedding.

Due to the lack of Jewish people and the large population of Indians in South Dakota, when Darren visited there he was affectionately known as "Jew-ronimo."

I'm guessing that when most people read Darren's favorite memory from high school, you were thinking to yourselves, "Yeah, actually, now that I think about it, that's my favorite memory too!"  You bunch of perverts.

Darren and I played softball together every Sunday from 1993 thru 2000.

Randy and Colleen Boyer are Darren's son, Damon's, God-parents.

Darren was one half of the B's Duet, and co-writer of the hit single "I Can't Believe I
t." If I remember right, the flip side of the single was "La Bondero de Astados Anitos Me Te Gusta Entonces Leer Leer Leer" (which translated means "The American Flag, I like to Eat, Read Read Read."  It's deep, you wouldn't understand.)

The first time I ever met Darren's wife, Debbie, was to watch the Flyers second to last play-off game in 1986. As a puck squeeked through Hextall's legs she yelled, "Woooah! There's a crotch burner!" We've loved her ever since.
Carter is camera-shy
I am also quite fond of Debbie's corn salsa. It is to die for! I'
m telling you, once you eat her corn salsa, you'll never crave regular salsa again. Her corn salsa is God's greatest gift to this world.

Question - just remembered something - neither Darren nor I were in the Nation Honor Society.  Why not, damn it?  15 years later, I demand an answer.  We were both
in the Top 10 in the class, what gives?

Darren�s son, Damon, was the ring bearer in Erin Miller�s (Class of �91?) wedding in 1999.

The picture shown to the right is of Deb and Darren Max, Collen and Randy Boyer, Kirsten and Carter Cheskey (well, the top of Carter's head), and me and Bev - from our trip to Viva Good Life Bistro and Lounge in Reading near the VF outlets, 1/10/04.  If you haven't been there yet, GO!  Awesome food.

In the 1983 Senior Class Will (found in the June 1983 issue of Penn Post), Jordan Max left his right to be a cynic to Darren Max.

Not only does Darren share a birthday with his wife, but he also has the same birthday as former classmates Dave Knorr, and the late Kenny Hoverter.

Great Adventure '88

Genesis....was this from the Invisible Touch tour?

Great Adventure has never been the same.

I don't think I'd want to hug these four after a flume ride.

He seems to have
an Invisible Touch?
