Eddie “Max” Emerson bid farewell to his earthly home in the early morning hours of November 24, 2023, and was welcomed with jubilation into his heavenly home. Max was born in
Weslaco, TX on November 7, 1934, as the only child of Leonard Monroe Emerson and Mary Bell Henderson Emerson. He graduated in 1948 from Stephen F. Austin School in Weslaco.
Max made a profession of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ on August 15, 1947, becoming a member of First Baptist Church in Weslaco, where he faithfully attended until moving with his mother in 1996 to Center Point and joining the membership of First Baptist Church. There he would remain a much-loved member until his death.
During his lifetime Max had several diverse careers, which included running two operations with his father. One of those was in egg production, and the other was in used car sales. After his father’s passing, Max ventured on his own into the television repair business, one he found especially satisfying for many years.
Max enjoyed reading, listening to music, talking about his family history, and watching old television shows from the 60’s, as well as gospel program. He loved his family and friends, but above all, he loved the Lord. Every morning began with Max reading his Bible and his devotional for the day. Even when a fall precipitated his moving into the Cedar Creek Nursing/Rehab center in Bandera. Max found comfort in his gospel programming, reading his Bible, and visiting with his Christian friends.
Max was predeceased by his parents and is survived by several cousins.
