Brian Max Maxim Shaw

May 22, 1948 - March 17, 2020


Max passed away suddenly on March 17th in Nelson BC, leaving a big hole in our lives. He was a teacher, artist, social activist, philosopher and unpaid comedian. He will be greatly missed by his sisters Marilyn (David) Butts of Calgary, JoAnn Shaw of Toronto, Lorraine (Ken) Jack of Lethbridge, Pamela (Dave) Supina of Lethbridge and his nieces, nephews, friends and extended family. Brother George (Pat) in Ottawa will especially miss his online jokes that only he and Max understood. A memorial will be held when the world returns to something nearing normal.
