Maxie lived life off the grid in South Westland but tragically died in his isolated Karangarua property, southwest of Fox Glacier in a fire, He lived in a shed with his dogs and was a colourful local icon, often compared with the infamous writer and bushman Barry Crump. Described as a "hard man" he lived in the shed he worked in, making wooden furniture, and his local knowledge was "second to none and better than any encyclopaedia ... often having a funny story or joke to tell .."
