Maverick loved his family and friends. He was very mechanically inclined and was always working on or building something. He loved to go mudding.

He liked to go fishing with friends and family every chance he had. Maverick was a great football player. He played football in Pell City, Alabama, Baytown, Texas as well as Ticonderoga. Maverick was loved by everyone he came into contact with. He was just a lovable and caring kid. Maverick will be dearly missed by a lot, from New York to Alabama to Texas.
Relatives and friends may call from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, August 1, at the Wilcox & Regan Funeral Home, 11 Algonkin St. Ticonderoga. Maverick would have insisted that anyone who came to his funeral should come in blue jeans, boots and jacked-up trucks, if you have them. We would respectfully request that you dress casually as you normally would in your trucks, if you have them.
A lantern lighting will follow after the services and a bonfire, as Mav was known for his big fires, at 7 Hall Road, Ticonderoga, (Chilson) in his memory.To offer online condolences, please visit www.wilcoxandreganfuneralhome.com.
