June 18, 1964 – February 11, 2011
It is with great sorrow that we share this news with you … the voice of Max – Kelly Lazarus – went home to be with Jesus during the night. Our loss is Heaven’s gain. Kelly is skipping down the streets of gold with Jesus, laughing and saying in his Max voice (as his head is tilted), “I’m just so cute.” Kelly touched the hearts of many children, as shared with us by the mother of one little boy just a few minutes ago.
Our prayers are with each of you during this difficult time. If there is anything we can do please let us know.

Kelly was a great friend and puppeteer. We loved him very much and will miss him very much. Our love and prayers are with you and his family. We are here for you.
So sorry to hear about Kelly. He was a nice man. Thinking of you and your team.
Just heard the news concerning the passing of Kelly. What a shock! He will be missed by many, as his life had such a positive impact on everyone who was blessed to know him. He truly radiated the light and life of Jesus. Our loss is Heaven’s gain! He is in the presence of Jesus, and waiting for us.
