Johnston Roger Maxwell IV
July 12, 1975 – December 10, 2020
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Johnston Roger Maxwell IV, age 45, of Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta. Our beloved Roger passed away at home on December 10, 2020.
Roger was a Senior Corrections Officer for over 20 years at the Fort Saskatchewan Correctional Centre, having served several years on the Tactical Team and as a Mentor. He was the union Health and Safety Advocate for fellow employees. He was a self-taught computer wizard, loved video games, and he was in his element when he was singing karaoke. He was a gentle giant and a gentleman loved by many.
He is survived by his loving mother Wendy King, his sisters Alison Maxwell Melnychuk and Jennifer Maxwell (Kevin), and Grandmother Lois King-Ford (George), Uncles Kevin Stuart King (Cindy), and Gordon Donald Maxwell. He was predeceased by his father Johnston Roger Maxwell III, maternal Grandfather John McGrath King, and his paternal Grandparents Donald Gordon Maxwell (Emily).
Roger will be mourned by his Brothers in Blue at the Fort Saskatchewan Correctional Centre.
Cremation has taken place as per Roger’s wishes.
An intimate family service at his graveside will take place in the Spring.
In lieu of flowers or donations, we ask that you reach out to thank a frontline worker.
