Our beloved Max S. Burrup departed from us January 5th, 2014 to be with his Lord and Savior.

As we mourn his absence as father, grandfather, brother, uncle, cousin and dear friend, we celebrate the joyous reunion between Max and his eternal love, Nita.

Max lived for and loved time spent with family and friends. His love was unconditional and felt by all. He gladly shared of his time, talents and resources with any he felt were in need. His wisdom and insights were sought after by many. All appreciated the counsel he gave.

A life time member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, he lived by the gospel teachings to love and care for his fellow man. He served in many church callings including Young Single Adult Branch President, High Councilor, counselor in multiple bishoprics, Stake & Regional Athletic Director, Ward Clerk and Deacon's Quorum Advisor.

Born on July 17th, 1930 in Downey, Idaho, to James Lee and Mary (Salverson) Burrup, he was the 10th of 11 children. After graduating high school in Downey he moved to Provo, Utah where he attended Brigham Young University and obtained a degree in accounting. Upon graduation he moved to Richland, Washington where he worked for General Electric at the Hanford site for a brief period of time. He then served in the army during the Korean War receiving an honorable discharge. After his military service he returned to full-time employment in Richland as an accountant. Over the years he was also a small business partner and continued his love of farming on the side. He enjoyed working for Allpro, Inc. until his death.

In 1954 at a church function, Max met the lovely Nita Fehrenbacker. In 1956 they were married for time and all eternity in the Idaho Falls LDS temple. Over the ensuing years they felt greatly blessed as 4 boys and 5 girls were born into their family. Many others were welcomed into their home and family for different periods of time.

One cannot think of Max without thinking of sports. He loved sports of all kinds and loved watching his children and grandchildren in their activities. He found enjoyment in following Brigham Young University sports with a special love for football. When time permitted, he could be found with a transistor radio to his ear, or in front of the television analyzing and calling out strategies like he was the coach himself.

Max was preceded in death by both his parents and his nine older siblings. He is survived by his children Brenda (Burrup) and Scott Dickinson [Richland, WA]; Byron and Susan (Tingey) Burrup [Richland, WA]; Vicki (Burrup) and Paul Winterton [Charleston, UT]; Scot and Kaeleen (Wistisen) Burrup [Lewiston, ID]; Cary and Sarah (Roberts) Burrup [Richland, WA]; Lisa (Burrup) and Bruce Mitton [Tualatin, OR]; Mary (Burrup) and Christopher Beesley [San Diego, CA]; Chad and Sherral (Earl) Burrup [West Jordan, UT]; and Amy (Burrup) and Matt Parson [Salt Lake City, UT]. This includes 36 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren with more on the way. He is also survived by his sister, Gena Lee (Burrup) and her husband, Merrill Evans [Blackfoot, UT].

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, January 11th, 2014, at 10 AM in the Kennewick Stake Center of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (895 Gage Blvd., Richland, WA). There will be no procession to the cemetery as the dedication of the grave will be held at Sunset Memorial Gardens (915 Bypass Highway, Richland, WA) at 2 PM.

A public viewing will be Friday, January 10th between 5 and 8 PM at Einan's Funeral Home (915 Bypass Highway, Richland, WA). All are welcome.
