Elder Max Caldwell of the Seventy passes away

Elder C. Max Caldwell, a former member of the Seventy, passed
away at his home in Lehi, Utah, on June 19 at the age of 78.
Known as a man who lived by his motto, "True at all times," Elder Caldwell spent his life serving in different callings and capacities in the Church.
He was called to serve in the Second Quorum of the Seventy in 1992, and fulfilled various assignments until his release in 1997. Some of those assignments included serving in area presidencies in the North America West, Philippines/Micronesia and Europe areas of the Church. He also served as assistant executive director of the Family History and Audiovisual 
In a Church News interview just after he was called to the Seventy, Elder Caldwell said, "I knew if we [famiy and missionaries] were true at all times, like the stripling warriors in Alma 53:20, then Doctrine and Covenants 59:23 would result — to have peace in this world and eternal life in the world to come. The thing that thrills me in Section 59 is that we can enjoy the fruits of becoming true and faithful here as well as hereafter."
A funeral is scheduled for Monday, June 25, at 10:00 a.m. at the Lehi North Stake center, 650 East 3100 North, Lehi, Utah.
A public viewing will be held Sunday evening, June 24, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Sundberg Olpin Mortuary, 495 S. State Street, Orem, and Monday morning from 8 to 9:30 a.m. at the stake center prior to the funeral services.
