Max David Otto, son of Travis Otto and Christina Brazil, was born August 9, 2012 in Osage Beach, Missouri. He departed this life Thursday, April 19, 2018 in his home, Lake Ozark, Missouri, at the age of five years, eight months, and ten days.

He is survived by his Mother, Christina Brazil and her significant other, Mike Andrews, of Lake Ozark, Missouri; his father, Travis Otto, of Westphalia, Missouri; his maternal grandparents, Annette and Donald Brazil, of Camdenton, Missouri; his paternal grandmother, Sandra Otto, of Lake Ozark, Missouri; paternal grandfather, Kenneth Otto, of Westphalia, Missouri; aunts and uncles, Lindsey VanPelt and Michael VanPelt, of Kaiser, Missouri; Joe Brazil of Camdenton, Missouri, Jon Lawerence and Cassia Alberti, of Jefferson City, Missouri, Angie Lawrence of O’Fallon, Missouri, cousins, Jonnie, Braxton, Emmarie, Alyssa, Lexis, and Chase; step-sisters, Shayleigh, Adrian, and Alivia, Andrews; as well as a host of other relatives and many dear friends.

Max had an infectious personality and was so sweet that he would give you a toothache! His smile and laugh brought light to any situation. His imagination was continually leading him on a new adventure, sometimes to the land of the dinosaurs or to the ocean to swim with the sharks. He had dreams of becoming a race car driver. He would often run through his home playing the “floor is lava” and climbing all over the furniture.

Playing at the trampoline park was something that Max truly enjoyed doing with his brothers and friends. Pop tarts and dino nuggets were his favorite foods and his favorite color was red.

He wore his heart on his sleeve and had everyone who loved him wrapped around his sweet little fingers. His beautiful blue eyes often reminded people of a Precious Moments doll.

Max was a loving son, brother, grandson, and cousin. We celebrate his life and will treasure the many wonderful memories he has created for his family and many dear friends.
