Obituary

On Saturday, March 6, 2021, Dr. Rick Maxwell, loving husband and father, passed away at the age of 67.

Dr. Rick was born on January 5, 1954 in Hobbs, New Mexico to Willie and Betty Maxwell. He received his chiropractic degree from the Palmer Chiropractic University in Davenport, Iowa in 1979, and practiced Chiropractic Care in Natchez, MS for 42 years. On September 19, 1989 he married Beanie Goodwin. They raised one son: William Maxwell.

Dr. Rick was an avid outdoorsman. He loved his time at the hunting camp with his son. He volunteered with the Boy Scout Troop 168, and won several marksmanship awards at Camp Hood and Camp Daniel Boone.

Dr. Rick was also known for his love of Trinity Episcopal Day School. You could find Dr. Rick on most Thursdays making Trinity a better place. If you attended “The Pit” on Friday nights you would always hear his signature “Gooooo Saints!!!” echoing through the stadium. Dr. Rick also enjoyed serving on the Trinity board for several years.

Dr. Rick was known for his love and compassion for all of his patients. Each patient was special to him and he enjoyed spending time with each and every one.

Rick was preceded in death by his father Willie. He is survived by his wife Beanie, son Will, mother Betty, father and mother in-law Charles and Beverly, stepmother Lois, siblings Ronn, Lois Ann and David, nieces and nephews Margaret, Destin, Dillon and Cambryn, and great niece and nephew Sylvia and Maxwell.

We will be having visitation for Dr. Rick at Young's Funeral Home in Vidalia Wednesday, March 10, 5-8 PM and a service Thursday March 11, starting at 10 AM, also at Young's Funeral Home in Vidalia.

Honorary pallbearers include Dr. Michael Craven, Alan Mardis, Lee Mardis, Mark Huggins, Mitch Ballard, Destin Piercy, Dillon Piercy and Sandra Qadan.

Dr Maxwell was my chiropractor back when I lived in MissLou around 2007, and I went to him because my stepbrother, Dr Robert Addington (a chiropractor as well in Amite, La) suggested I see one regularly, and I just fell in love. He was so sweet and kind and you KNEW he loved his “job”. I loved the fact that he spent money on equipment, training and his staff and not “outward appearance upgrades” for the office. You KNEW walking in that you would be taken care of by everyone there. I have (well, it was the beginning stages of my bone disease in the spine) and was terrified, but he always kept me smiling and laughing and I just could not wait to get adjusted again (and get that vibrating back massager!!). He was one of the VERY BEST, in terms of chiropractors AND people on this planet and it breaks my heart that such a wonderful person is gone too soon. I remember he’d show me pics of his son on their latest “adventure” and how much he just adored his wife (he could not function without Beanie). I wish I’d have taken the time to stop by for an adjustment when I’d travel through, because here in Texas, chiro’s are a “get in, get out” kind of stop, but Dr Maxwell made you feel at home. There’s definitely a seat for him at the Lords table and I can only hope I get the chance to shake his hand again. You are missed, Doc

I've known Rick since we were in Junior High and always considered him a very, very good friend. The world seems a lot emptier now. I will never forget him.
