Max Bernadeau known to many as Sonson

Of Waltham, entered eternal rest & peace in the loving arms of his God on Wednesday evening June 10th, 2020 on what would have been his 69th birthday, in Seasons Hospice and Palliative Care in Milton after declining health.

Born on June 10, 1951 in Thomonde, Haiti; son of the late Joseph Marcel Bernadeau and Jeanne Lucienne Valerus (Bernadeau), both of whom were born in Thomonde, Haiti.

Max is survived by his beloved wife Genevieve Isam; his devoted & loving children Mario Bernadeau, Vladimir Bernadeau, Scotty Bernadeau, Stacey Bernadeau Jackson, Mackenzy Bernadeau and Rebecca Bernadeau; his dear siblings Alix Bernadeau (Brother) Raymonde Bernadeau Farina (Sister), Vandal Bernadeau (Brother), Yannik Bernadeau (Sister, deceased), Pierre Marcel Bernadeau (Brother), Jean Ramelus (Gino) Bernadeau (Brother), Guerns Bernadeau (Brother); his cherished grandchildren Larissa, Marvin, Blake, Levi, Brock and Santino; and countless cousins, nieces and nephews.

He attended a Catholic preschool in Thomonde, attended middle school at the National School in Thomonde and high school in Port au Prince, Haiti at Lycee Firmin. In 1974 he migrated to Paris and later to the United States, more specifically Boston, MA.

Max worked several years at GTE in Needham, MA, Waltham Housing Authority and ended his career as an Independent contractor with Boston Taxi Services for 20+ years

His family, his friends and his faith were always first and foremost; he cherished the time spent surrounded by those he loved. He also enjoyed listening to music and traveling. He had a strong faith in his God and had been an active and devoted member of the Church of God, Waltham MA.
