Maxwell E. Rossiter passed away December 31, 2016 in the University Hospital, Edmonton, Alberta at the age of 72. Born on April 6, 1944 to Fred and Clara Rossiter, he completed the family, joining Elsie, Lloyd, and Fred Jr., in growing up in Carbonear, Newfoundland. Max lived a colorful life, riding around North America on his Harley Davidson motorbikes. He was often telling the stories how Honda bike parts would make the best trike conversions to the Harley’s and were not much good for anything else. Max married Joyce Rossiter December 24, 2004. A splendidly challenging relationship continued until December 24, 2016 where health issues took over his zest and he valiantly fought through the next week to recover, however, the Lord had a different answer to his healing. He leaves behind Joyce, son Ian, step-daughters Shantyl (James) parents of beloved grandchildren Ryan, Jesse, Kane, and Eva; Elizabeth; Cheyenne (Brent) beloved Aleighah with anticipated sixth grandbaby coming in the spring, and step-son Jordan. Max made friends wherever he went, and in 2000 he turned from his old ways, accepted Christ as his Savior and best friend and was committed for the rest of his life to tell The Good News to everyone he spent time with. Grande Prairie Christian Fellowship Church was the next important thing to Max and he always identified the congregation as his family. We, the family of Max Rossiter, wish to extend sincere gratitude to the QEII Emergency Room nurses and doctors for the excellent and compassionate care; to QEII 4 South staff who gave expert care to every need Max had; to Brad and John, who flew Max to Edmonton; to Shannon in the University Hospital Emergency Room who received Max from the air team; to 3E3 nursing staff who were taxed beyond measure but still focused on person centered care; the Nephrology Team who coordinated Max’s care and family needs; and Marshall in Dialysis Unit of University Hospital. A memorial service at his church (CFA) is planned for January 13, 2017 at 1pm. 11449 92st, in Grande Prairie, Alberta.
