Wallace (Wally) (Maxie) Fredrick Maxmenko

May 8, 1931 – October 19, 2016

“I’ve finished life’s chores,

Assigned to me…

So put me near a river

Headed out to sea,

Please send along a fishing pole…

For I’ve been invited

To the fishin’ hole

Where every day

Is a day to fish,

To fill your heart

With every wish.

Don’t worry, or feel sad for me,

I’m fishin’ with the

Master of the Sea”

Wally died at home, October 19 surrounded by his daughters.

He is also survived by his son, Graham. Born on a “dirt”

farm near Wheatstone, Saskatchewan, Wally grew to be an enterprising man: trapper, hunter, fisherman, bootlegger, cook, miner, papermaker and garage saler. He instilled a love of fishing in his children and the enjoyment of a good fishin’ story. Husband, father, grandfather, greatgrandfather, and brother he too will be missed.
