Larry Dean Maxey

Sergeant Larry Maxey was killed in an automobile accident in St. Clair County, Alabama while transporting two AWOL soldiers from Birmingham back to Fort McClellan.

He had been sent to pick them up after they were arrested in Birmingham. As they made the return trip a tractor-trailer crossed the median of I-20 and struck the prisoner transport van head-on. Sergeant Maxey and one of the soldiers were killed in the crash.

Sergeant Maxey, a U.S. Army Vietnam War veteran, was survived by his expectant wife and son. He had served five years with the U.S. Military Police.

Sgt. Maxey, I remember going on AWOL runs with you at the 111th MP CO under Capt. D. Foley and Top Cashwell. I remember your sense of humor and your willingness to answer any questions posed to you. RIP Larry. You will never be forgotten.
