October 13, 1952 – January 27, 2012

Keith (Max) Parrish beloved husband of Pat Parrish of Calgary, passed away on Friday, January 27, 2012 at the age of 59 years.

Max was a modern day John Wayne who lived life by his own code of honour and integrity. He worked hard and was a great provider for his family and was always there for them.

    Dearest Pat and family:

    May I offer my most sincere sympathy in your loss. I am sorry I could not join you today to celebrate Max’s life. Unfortunately, I could not get the time off work. My mum and dad will be in attendance.

    I have many great memories of the days we all chummed together. I always thought of Max as the gentle giant of the group. I will remember him with fondness.
    Our thoughts are with you.
