Max Showalter, of Maineville Ohio, formerly of Lafayette Indiana. Beloved husband of Arlene (Stewart) Showalter. Devoted father of Amy (Derek) Jackson. Proud grandfather of Bodie Jackson. Max is preceded in death by his parents Donal and Kay Showalter, sister Nancy Gore and brother Jimmy Showalter. Max passed away Sunday, December 3rd, 2017 at the age of 72 after a long battle with cancer.


Max was born in Marion Indiana & grew up working in his parent's grocery store in Upland Indiana. He graduated from Jefferson High School in Upland and received his bachelor's degree in journalism from Marion College. Max started his broad casting career in Frankfort Indiana at the local radio station. He went on to work in radio for the next 20 years at various radio stations, including KFIZ in Fond du Lac Wisconsin and WASK in Lafayette Indiana. Max left WASK to pursue a career in reporting for the Journal and Courier in Lafayette, where he retired in 2012. He and Arlene then moved to Maineville Ohio, to be closer to their daughter and her family and to be able to attend all of their grandson's sports activities. Max was an avid Jimmy Buffett fan and was the President of the Lafayette chapter of the Jimmy Buffett fan club, Parrotheads in Paradise. Max also loved to listen to Bluegrass music and was also the President of the Fiddlers Group in Lafayette. He also loved baseball, in particular, the Chicago White Sox and attended their games as much as he could.
