Maxwell "Max" Walker
It is with great sadness that the family of Max Walker announces his unexpected, but peaceful passing on Wednesday, August 8, 2012, at his home in Musquash, NB. Max was born on October 20, 1923, one of four children of Harry and Hazel (Flower) Walker. Max was a decorated veteran of the Second World War and Korean War, and enjoyed a successful career in the Canadian Forces until his retirement in 1968, and a second career with Gulf Operators and J.D Irving Equipment. He was a member of the Royal Canadian Legion and greatly enjoyed afternoons spent with good friends. He was devoted to his family, and will be greatly missed.
