Kevin Daniel Valdez “Max”  

April 30, 2001 – February 12, 2022 

Kevin was called to his eternal resting place in the company of angels on Saturday February 12, 2022 in Rio Rancho NM. Kevin is the son of Alan Valdez and Monique Jaramillo. He was born in Santa Fe NM on April 30, 2001. He spent a lot of time with his grandparents who held a special place in his heart. Kevin attended school in Rio Rancho NM and graduated two months ahead of his class at Independence High School in 2019. In high school Kevin was an outgoing person with a carefree spirit who people loved to be around. He had lots of friends who were drawn to his energetic personality.  

Kevin was a very hard-working young man. Since he was old enough to start working, he had a job. He was a long time caretaker for the elderly. He loved to take care of others. He was driven by the smile he put on people's faces. He was most recently employed for Smith’s Food & Drug. In Kevin’s short time with Smith’s, he made a lasting impact on people’s lives such as co-workers and customers. 

When Kevin wasn’t working you could find him at the skate park skateboarding, spending time with friends and family, or in the studio making music. He was an amazing songwriter and artist who went by the persona Max Soze. That persona took him places that he loved. He was devoted to the music it was what he loved. He loved the impact his music left with his fans. His music can be found on SoundCloud. 

Kevin touched so many lives in such a positive way. He was taken from us way too soon but his memories that he shared with so many people will last forever. He will be missed dearly by so many but never forgotten. We all have a special place in our hearts for him. #Max’s World
