Max was a furnace mechanic for over 30 years. His work took Max and his family from coast to coast. His favorite place was Nunavut, where he was able to hunt, ride snowmobile from October to June and drive a four-wheeler the rest of the time. At the age of 45, Max got his motorcycle license and the rest is history. He rode in the wind whenever it was possible making wonderful memories with his family and friends.
Special thank you to Dr. Rayson and his staff, Palliative care team and the VON.
The family of Max would like to thank all our family and friends for the outpouring of love and support during his illness.
