    I am so sorry for the loss of your beloved Max! He was one of of the kindest (if not “the kindest” sweetest, gentlest soul I’ve ever met! I had the honor of knowing him for the last two years, and he did many favors for me without even having to think about it! There are very few like Max! Heaven has definitely received another angel and I’m sure he will be looking down on everyone he loves and cares about! I will miss you, Max, with my whole heart and soul!

    Max “Chirpy” was part of the greatest street for kids growing up as there ever will be. North 85th and Fort. The memories are endless and Max was an essential part. I could write for hours about all the great times on 85th.

    To the Orosco family: love to each of you and may peace find your hearts as Max would have wanted. I will forever cherish the friendship I had with Max Orosco and his family. We are all better people because of Max’s influence on our lives.

    Peace be with you Max. Tell Robbie I said hello.

    Max (aka Chirpy) as we on 85th Street called him was the best of souls and the kindest of heart. As part of the kids on the block and neighbor I have great memories of all the fun times we all had. Max will be missed by all and we will hold the great memories of growing up with him. I miss the old block, but hold such dear memories of growing up there.

    My prayers go out to Rose, Liz, Lynn and the family I pray for strength in this time of healing and just know Max was loved by all who knew him.

    Thanks Chirpy for all the great memories.

    I am so sorry to hear of Chirpy’s passing. My deepest sympathy to his family. I will always remember our times together growing up on 85th. We played hard, laughed hard, and had the times of our lives. Chirpy was a huge part of that everyday. He will be forever fondly remembered and deeply missed.
