Our Founders


Tough and tenacious in business, visionary about the marketplace, fiercely devoted to family and close friends, passionate about horses, a man of quiet generosity—all of these describe the different sides of Max M. Farash. Caring, athletic, the bedrock of the family: this is how Marian Farash was known.

Quietly generous during their lifetimes, the Farashes in their later years gave serious thought to how they might best make long-term, meaningful contributions to their spiritual and civic communities. In the 1980s, the Farashes decided to give back to their communities, after their deaths, through the establishment of the Max and Marian Farash Charitable Foundation.

Marian M. Farash, described as “the heart, soul, and glue of the family,” died July 14, 2007 at the age of 89 and Max M. Farash died February 28, 2010 at the age of 95.
