Obituary for Maximilian Raymond Thernes

August 6, 1958 - September 23, 2019

It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Max (Maximilian) Thernes at the age of 61 on September 23, 2019.

Max was born in Vancouver, BC and married his high school sweetheart Alice Thernes on June 10th, 1978. He is survived by his wife Alice, son Ryan (Chrissie), daughter Jennifer (Keith), sisters Johanna and Rita, and brothers John and Robert, as well as many nieces and nephews, and his grand-kitties and grand-puppy.

His family, friends and co-workers knew him as a loving husband, father, little brother and an easy going, loving man who will be remembered for his fondness of fast cars and technology, an infectious chuckle and his debatably clever ‘dad’ jokes. The grief felt by his sudden absence knows no bounds.

Max will always be with us in spirit, especially when a freshly cracked Molson is left for him.

A private celebration of life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, his family requests those who knew him to drink a Molson Canadian in his memory.
