1957 – 2019

The family of Mr. Max Edgar sadly announce his passing at the Innisfail Health Care Centre on April 4, 2019 at the age of 62 years.

Max was born and raised in the Innisfail area and enjoyed working on the farm which stayed in his roots his entire life.
In 1977-78 he spent time working in the Arctic, and the oil industry. Max had an interest in pursuing a degree, in 1983 he attended Red Deer College and continued his education at the University of Alberta where he graduated with his Bachelor of Commerce Degree in 1986. He worked in the accounting industry in Edmonton for two years and then went on to pursue a career with the Provincial Government.
The family moved to Peace River in 1989 with Max accepting a job position as a Northern Development Officer for the Northern Development Council. For six years, he enjoyed working closely with Ministers and many local groups from all over the northern part of the province. He enjoyed playing a part in helping the people of the communities advance and improve the quality of life for all.
The family moved back to Innisfail in 1995 as Max had accepted a position to work as an Audit Supervisor for Family and Community Social Services. Max enjoyed being back in his home town and worked with many special people.
Max received his CGA designation in 1999 and started working with Heywood Holmes & Partners in Red Deer in 2000. In 2004, Max opened a satellite office of Heywood Holmes & Partners in Innisfail.
A life time goal for Max was to achieve his MBA, he accomplished this in 2009.
In 2009, he bought the practice from Heywood Holmes & Partners where he practiced until his passing. Max loved his clients and his work and was very involved with the downtown Red Deer Rotary Club and volunteered at many functions.
Max is survived by Debra, his loving wife of 38 years, his sons: Ryan (Lisa); Denton (Taylene) and his daughter: Calan (Chance and son, Rory Ouellette), and his first grandchild Zeke Maxwell Ouellette born on April 4, 2019, as well as numerous relatives from the Edgar and Bowe families. Max loved spending time with his family and friends and will be missed by all who knew him. There will be a private family service at a later date. If people wish, they can make a donation to a cancer charity of their choice. Heartland Funeral Services Ltd., Innisfail is entrusted with arrangements. 403-227-0006.

Very saddened to learn of Max’s passing. Very much enjoyed meeting Max at RDC, then as we went on to study at the U of A and then into accountancy. Max was a great guy. I’m sorry for your loss. - Trent

Deb and family. I was so sorry to hear of Max's passing. I cannot imagine what you have been through in these past months but have spent many moments thinking of you. It is not an easy thing to lose someone whom you love and have had so many experiences with.

Be kind to yourself. Eat well and drink lots of water. (I know this sounds like a silly thing to say but it makes a huge difference.) It takes not only time to get through loosing your husband, but also what you do with that time. It will not be the same again but someday you will have a new normal and it will be ok. You will get through this and someday it will all seem ok again.

Sending you love and strong wishes that the whole grieving experience will take as long as you need it too. Please, please do contact me, Deb. I once loved you like a sister and spent many years missing you. I have been through some heart wrenching times as well and could perhaps offer some help.

Thinking of you...

So sorry Deb to hear about Max. Sincere condolences to you and your family. He was a kind and gentle man. I have lots of fond memories of him. I helped him when he was upgrading at RDC. Lots of laughs!
Look at what he went accomplished and the beautiful family you both created.
Our thoughts are with you.
Lou and Jim
