Max Carl Sommerfeld


—  Max Carl Sommerfeld, 56, of Mankato died on June, 05, 2013 of congenital heart failure at Mayo Clinic Health System. Max was born on January, 08, 1957 in St. Paul, to Fred and Alice ( Augst) Sommerfeld.  

  Max married Marvel A. Hainey on March, 20, 1993 in Vinton, IA.  They moved to Northrop then lived in Mankato for the past 17 years. They recently celebrated their 20th Anniversary.  Max was a loving and caring husband who loved his wife deeply.  They could be seen together all around town on their electric wheelchairs.

Max never met a stranger, and could talk to anyone and everyone.  His smile and sense of humor will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

  As one of Jehovah's Witnesses in the Mankato Congregation Max loved sharing his Bible knowledge with all he met.

  Max was preceded in death by his parents.  He is survived by his wife Marvel and a dear Aunt Mabel Tessmer of Oakdale, MN as well as many in-laws, cousins, nephews and nieces.  

  A Memorial will be given at the North Mankato Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses on Saturday, June 22, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. with a family visitation starting at 10:00. Officiated by Tom Fournier.
