BOYACHEK, Stanley Maxim “Max”


On Thursday, September 6th, 2018, Max went to be with his Lord and Saviour, whom he loved and served. He is survived by his beloved wife and sweetheart, Patricia Anne (Doherty) of 52 years. They were blessed with six children and 15 grandchildren: Joy (Wallace) McGuire and Jessica; Trish Stringer (Graham) and Steven, Nathan and Ryan; John Boyachek (Sandy) and Benjamin, Joshua and Nelena; Jim Boyachek (Jaime) and Juliana, John and Jaysa; Janet Hallam (Chris) and Emily; Joe Boyachek (Heather) and Leila, Chandler, Lex and Eva. Max is survived by his brothers: Ron Boyd (Lil), Ted Boyachek (Lydia), Edward Boyachek (Isabelle), and Alfred Boyachek. He is predeceased by his parents, Peter (1988) and Jean (2004) Boyachek and sister-in-law Linda Boyachek (2016). He was loved by many cousins, nieces, nephews, friends and colleagues. Max was born and raised in Portage La Prairie, Manitoba and graduated with an Electrical Engineering degree from the University of Manitoba. He was employed with Northern Telecom for 34 years and part of the Lamko Tool and Mold family for over 22 years. Max was a faithful member of WestPark Church for over 35 years, where he served in many ways with enthusiasm and joy. His passions in life were farming, serving on numerous boards, deep theology discussions, classical music, performing magic shows for any kid that would watch, and running. He especially loved spending time with his grandkids, playing, running, building and tiring them out before he was tired. Max lived his faith in a contagious way every day and loved anyone that crossed his path. Family and friends will be received on Monday from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. at WESTVIEW FUNERAL CHAPEL, 709 Wonderland Road North, London.  A memorial service to celebrate Max’s life will be held at WESTPARK CHURCH, 955 Gainsborough Road, London on Tuesday, September 11, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. Sympathy may be expressed through donations to WestPark Church, Heritage College and Seminary or LHSF – Cancer Program (Bladder Cancer Research).

Colin G. WilcoxOur condolences, from the Wilcox Family , Colin, Judy, Marlene and Bryan...cousins from Belleville, Ont.
Scott, your nephewDear Uncle Max, “Your dexterous wit will haunt us long, wounding our grief with yesterday, your laughter is a broken song; and death has found you, kind and gay. We may forget those transient things, that made your charm and our delight, but loyal love has deathless wings, that rise and triumph out of the night. So, in the days to come, your name shall be as music that ascends, when honor turns a heart from shame…O heart of hearts! O friends of friends!” - - Siegfried Sassoon You will be missed

Deanna CollrinTo the Boyachek family: I was most saddened to hear of Max’s passing. I first met Max in the early 1980’s at Northern Telecom when he became my boss, and I, his secretary. We had an instant rapport and soon developed a friendship. Throughout those years, I learned that he was a devout Christian, who cherished and adored his family; he would often share memorable stories of them with me. His passing will leave an immense void in the lives of so many. Max has now finished his in which he lived and enjoyed to the fullest; he knew he was truly blessed. He now soares with the angels and I believe he will be rewarded for his unwavering faith through all his life struggles. To the family.... you will grieve for him but there will be times when you will feel the touch of his hand on your shoulder, and you will know that he is walking with you. With caring thoughts - Deanna

Vern & Wendy MatheuszikPat & Family, We were shocked at the sudden and tragic passing of Max, and now we grieve with, and for you and yours. Though we have long been in touch with Max and his family only through "news" from others, Max was a wonderful part of that extraordinary youth group at Snowdon Baptist in Montreal back in the day. We have a host of memories - all warm and good. May the God of all comfort be with you! Only God, and your trust in him, can do that.
Elmer & Susan HolmPat & Family So saddened by the sudden loss of your loving partner., father, and grandfather. We will never forget the time we spent at your home during Expo 67 in Montreal. We were grateful for the help you both gave us to find our way to the Expo grounds and the visits we had while we were there. Thanks to Ron Boyd for suggesting we stay with you and your small family at that time. Max was a wonderful person and may the Lord look after him now in Heaven. May God bless you Pat and watch over you and your family for years to come.
Laurice Botica (nee Gallagher)I am very sad to see of Max's death. He and his family were my friends and mentors when I was in Manitoba many years ago. I always think of his mother and father with great affection and of their many kindness's to me. Max had an air of peaceful about him and in a family of 5 boys that was very refreshing. Rest in Peace
