Coolum electrician Maxwell Anthony John Roberts as he will be remembered by his friends: “living life to its fullest”.

A Coolum motorcyclist was killed early on Saturday morning at Marcus Beach.

The body of 35-year-old Maxwell Roberts was found beside David Low Way by a Sunbus driver about 2.30am.

It is believed Mr Roberts – the owner of Maximum Demand Electrical Services – was catapulted into a sign after his motorcycle clipped the Marcus Beach roundabout.

Stuart and Kylie Leake said their friend would be greatly missed by many people. The couple wrote him a farewell tribute:

A sad farewell to a great man who always had his mates “covered”. You were larger than life and lived it to its fullest. Your goals were high but you always achieved them with a massive grin and that “get into it flat out” attitude. We are all going to really miss you maximum demand.

Until we meet again, “keep it fine 99”.

THE CREW. RIP.
