web_Maxwell, Thayer

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Thayer Maxwell (55), of Windsor, ON/Upper Sackville, NS, at home and surrounded by his family, after a short but courageous battle with cancer on Friday, August 15, 2014. He leaves behind his wife, best friend, and soul mate Thelma (Akerman) who he was married to for 32 years. He was the son of Ivy Inez (Costain) and the late Warren Leslie Maxwell of Upper Sackville, Nova Scotia and is survived by sisters Shelly (Doug, Upper Sackville, NS), and Cheryl (Gerry, St. Margaret’s Bay, NS). He is also survived by his extended family; his mother-in-law, Bernice Dufour (Young), Carolyn Berezan (John, Rosedale, BC), Linda Mesetovic (Shaban, Langley, BC), Geri Cale (Mike, Everette, Ont.), and Barb McLellan (Phil, Pictou, NS). He is also survived by many nieces, nephews, aunts and uncles. Thayer loved horses and for many years he owned, trained, and drove standard-bred race horses. He was also a skilled blacksmith. Most recently he was employed by Merchants Paper Company as a delivery truck driver and warehouse personnel. Thayer was known for his inner strength and inner peace, and was a very determined and focused man. He felt a great sense of responsibility in all aspects of his life, and he kept a sense of hope even when times were tough. He was a positive person with a wonderful sense of humour (he loved to tease people), and treated everyone he met with the compassion and respect he expected in return. He was generous, kind and always available to help a friend in whatever way he could. In his spare time, Thayer could be found tending to his plants or using his creativity to design another one of his creations in his “man cave”. His workshop/garage was the envy of every man who saw it and he spent many hours finding things to do so he could stay outdoors. We’d like to extend a special thank you to our wonderful family and friends, especially Pearl and Paul McGraw and our co-workers at Merchants Paper and the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit for your love, help and support in our time of need and during the final chapter of Thayer’s life. We’d also like to say a special thank you to VON Nurses, Vicki Allison and John Van Velzen, Dr. Gall and Catherine Ellis from Hospice, as well as Naomi Pengelly from the Community Care Access Centre. Thayer’s wish was to remain home until the end and through your help and support, all of you made that possible. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, The Heart & Stroke Foundation, or the Hospice of Windsor & Essex County. Cremation services have taken place. A Celebration of Thayer’s life will be held Saturday, August 23, 2014 with visitation from 10am until time of service at 12 noon at Families First 3260 Dougall Ave., South Windsor, 519-969-5841.
