I never had the pleasure or privilege of meeting this gentleman, but I always wanted to do so. Reading a lot of his letters to the editor to some of the local/regional newspapers over the years, he struck me as a person of exceptional intellect, solid faith, & a genuine patriot. Mr. Narby, sorry I didn't get to meet you here. But the next time around, we will meet. R.I.P. Mr. Narby. My prayers & condolences go out to his family.

Another Quote Max used on us as students.... "Those who fail to learn the lessons of history are doomed to repeat them". Max I will miss you. You were a great inspiration to me and many others. I was priveledged to have known you as my educator. I will always remember "Freedom Week" and Colonel James N. Rowe and the time we as seniors spent in your living room with you and him.

I grew up in Emporium and will always remember Mr. Narby as the 'face of Emporium'. He was everywhere, doing everything. School, red ribbon week, directing traffic when there was a fire, etc. I don't remember many events where you did not see his face. May he rest in peace.

I will remember his dedication to all us students always: and he will live on in thousands of indvidual's memories and hearts!
