Max Alley, our beloved father, grandfather, uncle, brother and friend passed away on Thursday, January 11, 2024 in Douglas, Wyoming.

Max was born on Friday, July 27, 1951 to James Perry and Marian Florence (Clark) Alley. Max was known for his huge heart and his amazing ability to make people smile and laugh. Known to many as "Uncle Max '', you could always find him at Tiny Tavern or Northgate doing just that, telling stories and jokes with his friends that were more like family. He would light up at any opportunity to talk about his son, Michael, "his greatest achievement". He was very proud of his son and grandkids, Morgan, Logan, and Addison, and great granddaughter, Sterling. He also loved spending time with his significant other Kay. He was many things, but one of his favorite hats to wear was being a big brother. Only a year apart in age, Dave and Max grew up as each other's protectors and that was still true to this day. Max would give anyone the shirt off of his back even if it was the only shirt he had. He was a simple, humble man that was devoted to his family and friends. Max was deployed at the age of 19 and served our country in The United States Army from 1970-1972. He was a right-hand door gunner during the Vietnam war and proudly named his son, Michael, after his left-hand door gunner, Michael Gregory McDonald.

He was welcomed home and preceded by his mom, Marian Alley on June 22, 1996; dad, Perry Alley on March 9, 1983; along with brothers, Perry, James, and Frank Alley; and his granddaughter-in-law, Chrissy Alley.

 He is survived by too many to list because he was so loved and was greeted by many other family members and friends.

 Serving as honorary pallbearers will be Mike Alley, Logan Alley, Dave Alley, Dave Alley Jr., Morgan Alley, and Addi Alley.

In lieu of flowers, memorials to Chrissy Effect Foundation, 45 Vista Drive, Riverton, Wyoming 82501 would be appreciated by the family.

The Gorman Funeral Homes – Converse Chapel of Douglas, Wyoming is in charge of the arrangements.
