Max Pennebaker Memorial (Parents: Carey and Jill Pennebaker)

Carey and Jill Pennebaker created the Max Pennebaker Memorial to honor their son.

Max grew up in Madison, Mississippi, where he was a member of the Chapel of the Cross Episcopal Church. He served as an Acolyte, volunteered at A Day In The Country, and helped with the Grave Digger’s Guild. At the age of 13, Max joined Boy Scout Troop 164. From the second he started, he was hooked and learned so much during his active membership time.

Max worked hard and was very proud when he made the rank of Eagle Scout, but not as proud as his family was of him. We will be forever grateful for the Scout leaders of Troop 164. Max graduated from Madison Central High School in 2022. He cultivated lasting friendships at MC. He loved his time there so much that he didn’t want to leave. He continued his education at Mississippi State University where he was majoring in Building Construction Science.

He found a home at Phi Kappa Tau. He spoke highly of his Phi Tau brothers and loved them. To know Max was to love him. His sweet nature, kind spirit, and incredible sense of humor brightened the lives of everyone who was lucky enough to know him. He was the most loving son, brother, and friend to so many people. His life was a testament to God’s love and he will be forever missed by those he left behind.
