Robert "Max" Lindahl, 75, of Wichita, Kansas, went to celebrate face-to-face with Jesus Christ in Heaven on June 7th, 2023.
Max was born on October 23, 1947, in Belleville, Kansas, to Clifford and Frances Lindahl. After Max graduated from Belleville High School in 1966, he went on to work as a Cardiac Monitor Technician in his beloved MICU at St. Francis Hospital in Wichita, Kansas. He absolutely loved all the staff there and kept in touch with several of them throughout his life.
In 1972, Max met Kathy Millspaugh in Wichita, Kansas. Max and Kathy were very close to Max's brothers - EJ Lindahl and CJ Lindahl, and to Kathy's brothers - William (Becky) Millspaugh, Daniel (Debbie) Millspaugh, and Timothy (Lois) Millspaugh. From these tight-knit family relationships, Max and Kathy had 12 nieces and nephews who they dearly loved and treated like their own children. Their names are Chris (Lowen) Millspaugh, Josh (Shannon) Millspaugh, Erin (Westen) Alexander, Jesse (Emily) Millspaugh, Emily (Jeff) Orr, Samantha (Jake) Walton, Jeffery (Sarah) Millspaugh, Anne (Josh) Breitigan, Staci Jo (Ryan) Groninger, Stephanie (Tracy) Millspaugh, Mark (Deidre) Lindahl, and Cindi Huckaby. They were also blessed with 20 great nieces and nephews who they adored as their own grandchildren.
Max spent most of his ornery life fishing, hunting, tinkering with firearms, bing-watching Netflix shows, teaching his kids the "Monkey and a Baboon Sitting in the Grass" song, sticking out his dentures to make the kids laugh, always needing to "feed the dogs", visiting with family and friends, helping others and playing with his "children", "grandchildren", and his beloved canine family.
Max was predeceased by his parents, Clifford and Frances Lindahl, his brothers, EJ and C.J, and his in-laws, Joe and Betty Millspaugh. He is survived by his wife of 50 years, Kathy Lindahl, his "children" and "grandchildren"
A Celebration of Life will be held at the Valley Center Community Building, 314 E Clay St, Valley Center, KS 67147 on Sunday, June 11, 2023, at 2:00pm.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be mailed to Beauties and Beasts, 114 S Pattie St., Wichita, KS 67211, an organization that Max felt strongly about. Beauties and Beasts rescues death row animals from the shelter and community to place them in foster homes where they receive the care and training needed to become family pets. Max's love for pets compelled him to support this life-saving organization.
