It is with great sadness and much love that we say farewell and announce the passing of Max on October 21, 2018, of Edmonton at the age of 52.
Max was predeceased by his father, Giorgio–semicolon– mother, Caterina–semicolon– and brother, Romano.
He is survived by his son, Victor–semicolon– who he loved and cared for deeply–semicolon– as well as many relatives in Italy.
Max’s love for animals was unconditional and he always knew he wanted to become a Veterinarian. Following High School he attended the U of A and then went on to the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Max used to enjoy telling the story of how he answered one of the questions that was asked of him to get into vet school–semicolon– he was to explain why he wanted to become a vet in 500 words or less, he wrote one sentence: I want to become a Veterinarian because I want to practice Veterinary medicine to help sick animals–semicolon– he would laugh.
Max received his DVM in 1992 after which he started working at a small animal medical clinic and fulfilling his dream of being a Veterinarian.
Max spent the summers as a teenager in Porto San Giorgio, Italy with his mother and brother.
Max was loved by all who had the honor of meeting and knowing him.
In lieu of Flowers a donation may be made in Max’s memory to the Edmonton Humane Society (13620 163 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5V 0B2)
A Celebration of Massimo’s Life will be held on Thursday, November 22, 2018 at 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM, at Connelly-McKinley Downtown Funeral Home, 10011 – 114 Street NW.
