Maxie James Triola, 88, passed away peacefully on Sunday, September 1, 2019, surrounded by family at his home in Ash-burn, VA. Max was born in Stafford, Texas, to the late Catherine and Christopher Triolo, where he grew up with his late sisters, Mary Nicoll and Frances Peterson. Max is survived by his devoted wife of almost 61 years, Patricia Jean; son, Max James; daughter, Margaret Catherine; son, William Christopher (Lisa) and grandchildren, Maxie James, Marissa Gabrielle and Sarah Nicole.
Max graduated from Texas A&M and took his first job at Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma, where he met his sweet wife and started their family. Max had a long and successful career with the U.S. Air Force, The U.S. Postal Service, The Department of the Interior, Fannie Mae, Honeywell and RSI before retiring and working as a CIA monitor. The most gratifying part of his life was in the tireless work he dedicated to his community and church. Max was in scouting for over 76 years, served as a Knight of Columbus (3rd Degree), and devoted more than 15 years to the Ashburn Volunteer Fire and Rescue (AVFRD), which holds a place of honor in his heart. He is also a founding member of St. Teresa Catholic Church, where he devoted his time and energy to creating a community of love and service. Max truly never met a stranger and always had a kind word and a smile for everyone he met. Funeral services were held on September 9, 2019.
