Max Wade Fender, 62, of Nebo, North Carolina, passed away Sunday, February 21, 2021 at his brother’s residence in Morganton.
He was born in Norfolk, Virginia on June 14, 1958 to the late David Allen Fender and Pauline Mace Fender.
Having worked in different industries over the years, he most recently worked as a welder. He loved music, and he was a talented, self-taught guitarist.

He was a faithful caregiver to his parents and grandparents. Though he had no children of his own, the children in his family were very special to him.
He is survived by his two siblings, Grady Ray Fender (Lesia) and Annette Fender Wadsworth (Patrick); and five nieces and nephews, Angela Gunter, Stephanie Fender, Todd Anderson, Kevin Fender, and Chris Fender.
A memorial service will be held in the Summer.
