November 22, 1926 – January 19, 2021
Victor Maksymchuk passed away peacefully in the Vernon Jubilee Hospital at the age of 94 years.
He was predeceased by his beautiful, devoted and loving wife, Olga on January 15, 2020. He is survived by his children, Valerie, Debby, Leon, Terry and their spouses, together with thirteen grandchildren and thirteen great-grandchildren.
Our Dad touched and enriched all our lives in so many ways. His unwavering faith in God prevailed throughout his life as he faced many challenges, which included a continuous series of health ailments stemming from a workplace accident at the age of 45. Through it all, he maintained that gentleness and wonderful sense of humor we all grew to know and love.
Dad has now gone Home to be with our Mom; his son Larry; granddaughter Sarah; and many other relatives and friends who went on before him. He is now free from pain and in the land where joys shall never end, “eyes will never fill with teardrops, legs will never ache with pain, hands will never age and wither and a heart will never break again.”
