Carold - I can't imagine what life is going to be like without you here.

God created the finest, most loving, best brother that anyone could ever have. And then God broke that mold.

I love you so much. So much,
your brother Dave

Max was a man satisfied with the simple things in life. He was a character that made you smile with every encounter. He was honest, sincere, and open. He kept the boy inside of him alive. Linda, you had a special guy there. He will be missed. Our deepest sympathies to you and the entire family.

I didn't really know this man, I only knew him as Officer DeJarlais who arrested me for DUI back in 1979. And I shall be forever grateful, I'm only sorry that I never got to thank him here on earth. It has led to 38 years of sobriety that hasn't always been wonderful but would have been much worse with alcohol involved. In fact life's been pretty wonderful the last 14 years since I got married. This man never knew me, but I probably owe him my life as my drinking was getting bad. Rest In Peace, Officer. You helped me more than you know.

Linda my heart is aching for you. I am with you in spirit today. Max was such a fun loving, and kind person. He always made you feel you were the most important person in the room. I will forever remember him feeding peanuts to the chipmunks the first time I stayed with you when visiting Hibbing.

We are so sorry to hear about Max. Our sincere sympathy to his wife Linda and his family. We worked with Max for the City of Chisholm for many years and always enjoyed talking to him. We always ran in to him at Super One and Walmart and had just talked to him a few weeks ago. There was never kinder person than Max. Rest In Peace Dear Friend.

I am so sorry to hear of Maxs' passing. He was always an excellent person, soft spoken and an excellent police officer. I was so very happy to hear when when he and Linda got married. You could see the love in his heart when spoke of you, Linda. Though he was very private with his home life, he would slip every once in a while about why his mood was so good. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. May God bless you all!

I was so saddened to hear of Carold's passing...he was our neighbor for many years while he was an officer in Chisholm...one of the best. My condolences to your family. He will be missed. I would also like to say that he sent a card when my Mom passed away over a year ago. I was truly touched with his kind words and memory of my Mom. Truly a gentleman. God Bless you Max.

To the DeJarlais family, Jim, Dave, and Linda,

Deeply saddened to hear this news. We were neighbors for years, and great friends. Dave and Jimmer-I can't imagine how you feel losing Carold. So many great memories with your family, all I can say is I am so sad. I will not be able to attend because I am out east but my thoughts and prayers are certainly with you, and will stay in touch. Bless you all. Love, Debbie Meyer

Hearing the news about Carold's passing is still unreal to me. I was so proud to be his cousin!! I have so many fond memories of childhood days spent at the lake with my dear cousins. Having so many family meals around Grandma's table are imprints in my mind. There will never be another Carold, but thank God there was one!

Linda, I am so sad to hear of Max’s passing. May fond memories bring you comfort during this hard time in your life. I am truly sorry for your loss.

Brother Carold, there are very few people who are liked immediately upon meeting them. You were one of that small group that was not just liked, but loved as soon as you started talking to someone. You were a special son, brother, brother in law, uncle, cousin, and friend to everybody you touched. We are so thankful that you accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior because we will be with you in eternity and that is what truly matters. We will miss you terribly, but are happy for your new found joy with your family in heaven. We love you forever. Jimmer ('Jiggs') as you liked to call me and Mary your sister in law but really your sister.

Please accept my sincere sympathy. Max was a special person and I am sorry I cannot be with your family at this time. I remember that Max attended services for my husband's funeral -- I was so honored by that. May he rest in peace in the arms of Our Lord.

David, please accept my condolences. May fond memories of your brother bring you comfort during this hard time. Despite the loss of physical presence, we know that God will assign him to watch over you throughout your life ....remember his sense of humor particularly when goofy things happen to you. This is who he is and I am certain he is going to enjoy reminding you. My thoughts and prayers are with you, Jim and family. God bless.

With deepest sympathy as you remember Carold. He was a toddler when I was his babysitter in 1949.

Linda, my thoughts and prayers are with you. I first met Max, (we called him Serpico) , when I was working with you at the Chisholm Country Kitchen. There many storiesthat I could tell you, but it would fill volumes. I just wanted you to know that when he was with the Chisholm PD, Max and Danny Erickson were a great influence to a young teenager. He always had time to talk and encourage me to work hard and become a good person. I never saw him again after I moved from Chisholm but he has left a lasting impression on me.
