Jeffrey Thomas “Jeff” Maxwell

Jeffrey Thomas “Jeff” Maxwell, 57, of the Bethesda community, passed away Sept 4, 2021, at Williamson Medical Center. 

Mr. Maxwell was a resident of Williamson County all his life and was the son of the late James Madison Maxwell Jr. and Ruby Jean Tomlin Maxwell. 

He started working at a young age for the family business, Maxwell Sledge Construction, where he learned the carpentry trade from his father and grandfather. He and his family built many homes in the Williamson County community, and many would say, “If it was Maxwell built, it was built to last.”  

In recent years, he continued the trade with Custom Classic Homes and worked for the Williamson County Codes Department prior. 

Jeff was an avid fisherman that loved to host fish fries and Pedro parties for his friends and family.  He also enjoyed gardening, racing, Mexican food and taking his friends and family on fishing trips. Jeff always had a smile on his face and was willing to help anyone. He loved his family dearly and will be greatly missed. 

He’s survived by wife, Rhonda Flippen Maxwell; son, Justin (Kayla) Maxwell; daughter, Katelyn Maxwell; grandchildren Karley, Jace, Kinsley, Zaiden and Bray’Zie; beloved dog, Grace; sister, Donna (Keith) Roberson; brothers Jim (Paulette) Maxwell and Jason Maxwell; and many cousins.

Funeral services will be conducted at 11 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 9, 2021, at Williamson Memorial Funeral Home with Pastor Raymond Johnson and Bobby Bennett officiating. Visitation with the family will be Wednesday evening from 4-8 p.m. and one hour prior to the service on Thursday. Burial will be in the Cross Keys Hartley Cemetery. 

Active pallbearers will be Randy Giles, Michael Giles, Joey Glenn, Jerry Glenn, Richie Glenn, Daryl Waggoner, Kenneth Stephens and Kenneth Hartley. Jeff’s brothers-in-law, cousins, nephews and the Maxwell Racing crew will serve as honorary pallbearers.
