Maxwell L. Hussey
Maxwell Lorne Hussey was born September 20th, 1945 in Herring Neck. He passed away peacefully at Notre Dame Bay Memorial Hospital on August 19th, 2021 with family by his side.
He was predeceased by his parents Claude and Olive Hussey, his brother Hector Hussey and father-in-law Willie Cooper. He leaves to mourn with fond memories wife Audrey of 55 years, daughters Sue (Jerry) Elliott, Karina (James) Arnold and Beth (Eugene) Hynes; 6 grandchildren Jenna, Mitchel, Nathan, Laura, Carter and Tyler, step-grandchildren Madison and family, Mackenzie and Mitchell, sister Barbara (Dayeton) Larson, as well as in-laws Nina Cooper, Mary Ann Hussey, Howard (Christine) Cooper, Diane (Lorne) Gidge, Peter (Lorraine) Cooper, Aunt Merle Bailey and numerous other family and friends.
Max was not only a teacher but also a master boat builder, carpenter, and self-taught musician.
He enjoyed spending time in his store working on boats and other projects. Playing his guitar and accordion for his family and friends brought him great joy.
As a man of great faith, he spent 28 years serving his church as a lay reader. He enjoyed spending his summers in Herring Neck at his cabin, where he loved to fish and take family and friends on boat rides. He was a loving husband and father, and his grandchildren were his pride and joy.
Max was known as a very genuine person with a great sense of humour and had a positive impact on the lives of many. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
The family would like to thank all of the health care staff involved in his care, especially his home support workers and Jane Bath. We would also like to thank Julianne, those who participated in the funeral, and family and friends for their love and support.
Keeping with Max's wishes cremation has taken place. A memorial service by invitation only, will take place from St. Peter’s Anglican Church on Sunday Aug 22, 2021 at 2pm.
Donations in Max’s memory may be given to Crohn’s and Colitis Canada and Candlelighters Association of NL., which is a volunteer charitable organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for children with cancer and their families since 1982. There primary aim is to be a support group whose goal is to provide the families of children diagnosed with cancer with information, emotional support and unique understanding. In keeping with that aim, Candlelighters provides emotional, peer support for our families as the need is identified – at diagnosis, before surgery, during hospitalization, upon relapse, in times of crisis, as death approaches, during bereavement; as well as when a child finishes their program of treatment and continue to progress with a normal life.
