Maxxwell Faircloth

July 6, 1992 ~ August 9, 2021 (age 29)


Maxxwell Chansey Faircloth born July 6th 1992 was called home on August 9th 2021 due to a severe asthma attack.  With his passing, the hearts of all who love him will forever have a void. 

Maxxwell was born and raised in the Hudson Valley and was the first born son to his mother, Cicely Prevost (Branche) and his father, Maxwell Faircloth Jr. Maxxwell is survived by his brother, Marsallis Perry Faircloth who is just a few years younger than he. They were constant, loving companions growing up who continued to share an unbreakable brotherly bond into adulthood. Many years later, Maxxwell was blessed with his little sisters, Ella and Lily Prevost.  Maxxwell was an amazing big brother.  He had a constant, loving presence with all of his siblings. He could always be found holding a little one, teasing them, loving them and would not hesitate to get in their cribs and cuddle with them. They absolutely adored him. Maxxwell was also blessed with his other siblings Karissa Vanamburgh, Markell Strang and Maxwell’s newest little sister Raye-Marie Faircloth.

Maxxwell was a superstar athlete and proud graduate from Marlboro High School. He excelled as a student-athlete with his fiercely competitive drive and athletic skills.  His love for football and especially basketball was obvious whenever he hit the court or the field. Maxxwell was well known, respected and loved by his teachers, coaches and fellow athletes.  Throughout his high school years his athletic talents kept him in weekly sports spotlights in local papers.

Maxx was a God fearing Christian man and attended Faith Church of God in Marlboro NY headed by his Grandparents Bishop Max Faircloth Sr. and Pastor Ruth Faircloth. Professionally, Maxxwell worked as a well-known and respected barber alongside his father at his family business Beacon Fade and Shave Barbershop in Beacon NY.

Maxxwell had a commanding presence and a magnifying charm. His laugh was contagious and his love of life was undeniable. Alongside his strong will and passion to put up a good argument, his light hearted vibe and silly nature would  keep anyone intrigued.

Maxxwell married the love of his life, Aida Faircloth (formally Samradli), on June 30th 2018.  The two of them had an extraordinary bond was undeniable. Maxxwell and Aida have two children – they were Maxx’s greatest joys,  daughter Mya (2 years old) and son Maizon ( 1 year old). Family was everything to Maxxwell.

Words cannot express how Maxxwell will be missed by his family and friends. He was a ray of sunshine and that would light up any room he walked into.  A big, silly teddy bear always wanting to put a smile on your face.  He will remembered for the loving, kind, giving, talented goofball that he was.

We know that he is watching over us and will forever be missed.
