    BUSTOS of illinois in the house of representatives Thursday, December 19, 2013 Mrs. BUSTOS. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to remember Maximillian Bandy of East Moline, Illinois who passed away on December 5th at the age of 87.

    Max Bandy was born on February 1, 1926 in Centerville, Iowa, one of 11 children. After serving in the U.S. Army during the Korean War, Max worked at Case IH for over 40 years. He stayed active in his community as a union steward and later ran for Alderman of the 6th Ward. He was first elected in 1993 and remained on the City Council until 1999. Additionally, Max served on the board of the Florence Aldridge Child Development Center in East Moline.

    Max loved being involved in his community, singing in his church choir and cheering on his Iowa Hawkeyes. He had a large family and was a very proud father, stepfather, uncle, grandfather and great- grandfather.

    Mr. Speaker, I'd like to give my sincere condolences to Max Bandy's family and friends and honor his years of dedicated service to the people of East Moline.
