Frederic “Maxx” Stiefel, beloved son of Maxxsonic CEO Alden Stiefel, passed away on February 16 – one day after his 30th birthday.
Maxx was the VP and General Manager of Maxxsonics. After receiving his bachelor’s degree he joined Maxxsonics as a Financial Operations Manager in 2015. He went on to receive his MBA and returned to the company with a full-time role in the finance and business analytics group.
Maxx’s family said he was best known for his illuminating smile, that would light up any room. His obituary said, “He was a legendary great hugger. If you were a recipient of one of his hugs, you knew those special embraces came from love, warmth, and genuineness. Maxx was always drawn to music, cars, and building Legos, but nothing beat his passion for hockey.”
He instilled a great work ethic at Maxxsonics, while collaborating with team members to ensure the Company’s growth.
Maxx was the beloved and loving son of Karen and Alden, cherished brother of Lexxie; and a devoted grandson of Nane and the late Poppy Cassano, late Fred and late Bubby Stiefel.
