He was the author of over 200 publications, including books and technical papers, and served on numerous scientific advisory boards. Dan was dedicated to improving recreational boating safety. In addition to holding a host of leadership positions in the Auxiliary, Dan wrote a Nautical Chart Users’ Manual and developed an internet course on marine navigation. He conducted countless search and rescue missions.

He was the Chairman of the National Boating Safety Advisory Council for the US Coast Guard and former National Directorate Commodore and Assistant National Commodore of Recreational Boating with the US Coast Guard Auxiliary. Dan was inducted to the National Boating Council’s Boating Safety Hall of Fame and received multiple Public Service commendations from the Commandant of the US Coast Guard. He was the recipient of the Bunzyl Boating Safety Award from the American Boat & Yacht Council Foundation.

Predeceased by his parents, Leslie Morgan Maxim and Lillian (Lester) Maxim; he leaves behind to carry on his legacy, his beloved wife of 56 years, Karen (Dunne) Maxim; his daughters, Lauren Maxim Van Wazer and her husband Thomas Van Wazer, and Lysandra Danielle Maxim; and his grandchildren, William Maxim Van Wazer and his wife Elizabeth Van Wazer, and Thomas Maxim Van Wazer.
