Maxym Troyon Robert Nahnychuk

October 19, 1970 ~ September 13, 2017

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Max.

All who knew Max will remember his love and joy for life, his humour and constant smile and his calm presence. We can have comfort knowing he is home with his lord Jesus Christ.

Max was predeceased by his father Onufrey Nahnychuk (1976), mother Roberta Ruth (2013), his older brother Dale Edey (2008), and nephew Waylon Edey (2015).

He is survived by his wife Colleen, brother Michael of Fort St. John, sisters Kathy (Curt) of Tacoma, Maxine (Doug) of Victoria, Barbara of Burnaby, Elaine (Jim) of Kamloops, Michele (Les) of Whistler, and many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews, cousins and close friends.

Max was about to move into missions in Argentina. His passion, love and eagerness to share about this made him glow.

Missions was something Max was fiercely passionate about. As an expression of sympathy please donate in Max’s honour to your local or global organization or missionary.

Please join us October 7, 2017 as we celebrate, honour and share our memories of Max. 1 pm at Bethel Christian Centre, 623 Gordon Road, Nelson, BC. Reception to follow.

All are welcome to attend. Guests are encouraged to wear something colourful to honour Max’s vibrant spirit and his passion to serve the colourful people of Argentina.
