Max R. Peterman, 92, of Woodland Park, NJ, passed away May 2, 2022.
Born in Englewood, NJ, Max moved to Woodland Park, where he has resided for 60 years. After graduating high school, Max worked as a Sheet Metal Worker for a few years before he enlisted in the United States Army. Max proudly served during the Korean Conflict from 1951 to 1953. Upon being Honorably Discharged from the Army, Max continued to work as a Sheet Metal Worker with Local 25 Sheet Metal Workers for 44 years, retiring in 1991.
Max and his family spent countless summers going to Point Pleasant and Wildwood. After retirement, Max enjoyed many trips to the casinos- especially Atlantic City. He also loved buying scratch offs for himself and others. Every holiday, without fail, Max would pull out a Bingo scratch off for each grandchild. He will be dearly missed by all.
Max is survived by his loving wife of 64 years, Loretta (nee Schlageter) Peterman, caring children, Ron Peterman and his wife Claudia, Steven Peterman, and Christine Podolec and her husband, Victor. Max is survived by his adoring grandchildren, Alyssa, Max, Miranda, Danielle, and Alex.
