REMEMBERING BOB MAXWELL: Honoring a Local Veteran

The family and friends of Bob Maxwell had a chance to pay their respects today during a vigil at a downtown funeral home.

While Bob Maxwell is best known as a Medal of Honor recipient for his bravery and heroism during World War Two, but his friends and family say there was so much more to his life that many people don’t know.

Tomorrow family and friends will gather at noon at the Deschutes County Fairgrounds main expo building for a remembrance with honors, followed by a motorcade to the Terrebonne Cemetery for a burial with full military honors.

Central Oregon Daily will have live coverage of the memorial on KOHD-ABC and KBNZ-CBS and we will also be live-streaming the service online at
