Maxwell Keyes Mudge, a retired Alban Tractor Co. executive, died of complications from Alzheimer's disease Sunday at the Blakehurst Retirement Community in Towson. The longtime Roland Park resident was 78.

Born and raised in Pikesville, he was a 1945 graduate of McDonogh School, where he played baseball. After serving in the Army, he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in history at the Johns Hopkins University and was president of the Delta Upsilon fraternity.

He then joined Alban Tractor, a local Caterpillar tractor distributorship. Mr. Mudge moved from the parts department into sales, where he served as vice president for many years. He retired in 1992 after 41 years with the company.

A Meals on Wheels of Central Maryland volunteer, he was an avid tennis player and lacrosse fan. He also was a dog fancier.

A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday at Episcopal Church of the Redeemer, 5603 N. Charles St., where he was a communicant and had served on the vestry.

Survivors include his wife of 53 years, the former Jacqueline Vernay; a son, Bradford K. Mudge of Denver; and three grandsons.
