MOORE Max Eugene Moore, formerly of Bentley, passed away on August 12, 2005 at the age of ninety-two. He was born in Moulton, Iowa on September 29, 1912. His family emigrated to Canada, arriving at Gull Lake in 1913. Max was educated in Alberta, but went back to the U.S. to work as a telegrapher for two years. He returned to Alberta and married Agnes Cabelka on June 20, 1939. They farmed in the Gull Lake area for thirty years. During this time, Max became a journeyman partsman, then worked in Red Deer at his new trade. Fifteen years of their retirement was spent at their new home on Shuswap Lake before they moved back to Bentley. Max has made many new friends in the last three years while living in Lacombe and Sylvan Lake. Max's social nature and exceptionally positive attitude made him an inspiration to his children and grandchildren. He never declined an invitation from family or friends, especially if it involved a card game. He loved to play the harmonica, yodel, strum and sing for family jam sessions. During his later years he enjoyed emailing friends and was very proud that he could bank online. Max was predeceased by his beloved wife Agnes, in 2001, his parents Esco and Grace and his sisters Verona and Mildred. Left to cherish his memory are his children Larry Moore, Carol (Jim) Tronnes, Harvey (Carol) Moore, Connie (Gerrit) Van Heeren and Phil (Jane) Moore; his grandchildren Dean (Anja), Eugene, Dan (Lana), Dawn (Doug), Chris (Betty), Ray, Steven, Tim, Michael, Kelly (Wade), Kim, Ross and Jill; and his great grandchildren Chyanne, Olivia, Taylor, Carter, Ashley, Scott, David, Jennifer, Amy and Amelia. He will also be sadly missed by his sisters Dorothy Smith, Pauline Pollock, Donna Jacque and Nedra (Gerald) Pollock and Agnes' siblings Louis Cabelka and Helen Beranek. A celebration of Max's life will be held on Thursday, August 18 at 11:00 a.m. at the Bentley Ag Centre with Reverend Ray Goodship officiating.
