We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at West Haven Funeral Home
It is with profound sadness that the family of Max J. Chalmers III, 41, announce his death on May 19, 2022. Max rose on the beautiful morning of July 23, 1980, a son of Regina (Frederique) Serrano and the late René Max Chalmers. In addition to his beloved mother Regina (Enrique) Serrano, he leaves behind loving sisters Cassandra and Myriam; brothers Brandon, Geatan and Emanuel; grandfather Maurice (Solange) Frederique; many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and a great-niece, a nephew and great-nephews, as well as a host of adoring friends. Additionally predeceased in death by grandmother Lucille Frederique, and cousin Guymaurice Victor.
Max’s family relocated to Milford in July of 1988 from his birthplace of Queens, New York. He first attended Notre Dame High School, ultimately graduating from Jonathan Law High School in 1997, whereby he ventured south to Florida, attending Barry University in pursuit of higher education in Business Management. It was during this time that Max found his calling for hospitality and cuisine, he honed his skills, and went on to forge a career as a head-chef and kitchen manager. The wellbeing of friends and family was of high priority for Max. Whether 5am, 5pm, or just for 5 minutes, one could count on him having his phone on or near him, and without fail, was always available- with a smile on his face!
While visiting family and friends on vacation in Connecticut, God called our Max home. From his sunrise to his sunset, he remained a beacon of love for all those that crossed his path. His path and story may have been abridged; however, the width and depth of his loving nature will far surpass his years with us. Max will forever remain in our hearts, although right now they are broken in his void. Your Mom, Bizzle, Nuk, and Sis love you always!
Calling hours will take place on Friday, May 27th, from 4 to 7 o’clock. A funeral service will then commence at 7 o’clock, in the funeral parlor. All subsequent services will be private.
