Ranger Exes Memorial - RHS Class of 1949

Max Judy MAX L. JUDY, 16, son of Mr. & Mrs. B.R. Judy, died on April 8, 1948 from an accident at a chat pile northeast of Ranger, TX. According to reports of the accident, Judy with Bobby Joe James and A.J. Tanner had driven a truck to the scene of the accident to take on a load of chat. The truck was backed under a ledge of chat for the purpose of loading. As the truck was driven under the ledge, the ledge caved in completely burying Judy. He was rushed to the Ranger General Hospital by the other two boys but was dead on arrival. Attend- ing physicians stated that he died of suffocation and injuries. Interment was in the Evergreen Cemetery in Ranger. Max Judy was born in Ranger on April 23, 1931 and had made his home there all of his life. He was a sophomore in Ranger High School and a member of the school band at the time of his death. His brothers were Mervin R. Judy, Wayne Judy, Jack D. Judy, Billie N. Judy, Noel Judy (RHS-1951). His sisters were Mrs. E.D. Langwell and Mrs. R.P. Getts. The 1948 Ranger Bulldog yearbook was dedicated in memory to Max Judy and to Leo Miller (RHS-1948).
