Max Robert Wiesner passed away peacefully at Talarico Place in Castlegar on May 29, 2013. Born in North Star, Alberta on July 24, 1936 to Frank and Eleanor Wiesner. He was the eldest of ten kids.

He grew up in North Star and then to B.C, settling in Renata and Nelson. He met the love of his life Lucy Babakaiff in 1957, marrried in 1958, then spent the next 50 plus years making memories from Penticton, Robson, Calgary, Slocan Valley and back to Robson along with their three beautiful daughters.

Max worked many years in construction, logging, paving and operated all types of heavy industrial equipment. Becoming self-employed in the mid 70s and starting his own business Luman industries, making and creating his own designs of ornamental ironworks.

Max had a passion for hard work, family, friends, music, animals, practical joking, making a deal or two with a trade, collecting antiques and socializing, especially with women. His greatest pleasure was being up the lake at Renata which was his true heaven. He would always be willing to lend a hand or show you how it’s done.

Survived by his daughters Brenda Rowan (Jim), Sharon Eakins (Maurice Garneau) and Shelly Lapointe (Sandy). Four grandchildren, Jessica, Rebecca, Serena and Sandon. Seven sisters, two brothers, their spouses, numerous nieces and nephews, a wide range of friends from everywhere.

Predeceased by his parents, wife Lucy and granddaughter Simone.
