Memorial & donation details: Kayaker Max Boheme

Memorial arrangements have been made for Max Boheme, who died while fishing the salmon tournament of the Great Lakes Kayak Fishing Series out of Manitowoc, Wis. on Saturday.

Now, a way to set up donations has been established.

There is good reason for the donations, as Ted Wozny of Lucid Fishing noted with these details for both the memorial and the donations.

Here is what Wozby passed along:

Max's family will be holding a memorial service for him on Sunday - September 20th, 2015

from 1pm to 4pm....if you kayak fish please be there!

Beidelman-Kunsch Funeral Home

516 S. Washington St.

Naperville Il.60540

The first part of the service will be the time to talk to friends and family. After that, the family

will likely be inviting anybody to speak about their experiences with Max and what he has

meant to you.

I am begging everyone that can to be there!!!

Max was such an awesome kid that was full of life and a stellar fisherman. He touched a

ton of people and our world isn't as bright without him.

Max and his girlfriend Kat are expecting to deliver their first child-a baby boy named “Bear”

in the next couple of weeks. As fellow anglers, parents, and friends we all know how hard

and expensive kids can be. We are pleading with everyone to please come together with

us and help to make sure we give Baby Bear anything he might need in his first stage of life!

Max will live on through Bear and we personally can’t wait to meet this little guy and watch

him grow up. We know Max would have given his son the world, so we want to make sure

that still happens!

We are working with Max’s family to ensure that all donations will be going directly to the

family. Any physical gifts that you wish to send please email us at

for more details. In the memo section please write "MAX".
