GADSDEN COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) - Co-workers are remembering one of their own Thursday night.

Gadsden County deputy Maximilian Sander died Saturday after a motorcycle crash in late May.

A viewing for the deputy starts less than an hour at Bevis Funeral Home from 6 to 8 p.m.

Those who knew Sander say that he had an infectious personality, loved to smile and would do anything to make others smile.

A memorial is set up in his honor outside the courthouse in Quincy where he worked

When it came to his job, fellow deputies describe him as a very hard worker who inspired others to do the same, and who was always ready for the next job.

"Whenever I'm looking for someone to take care of an assignment, he was always out front,' said Corporal Lindsey Anderson, Sander's immediate supervisor. "He was always right there willing and ready to do whatever it takes to get the job done."

His funeral mass will be held at Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church at noon on Friday on Micousoukee Road.

The mass will be followed by military honors at the Tallahassee National Cemetery.
