In Loving Memory of Clifford Maxwell McKelvey

Max passed away peacefully at the Haliburton Hospital on Tuesday, September 26, 2023, at the age of 84, after a short but courageous battle with cancer.

Dear father of Keith and Marie-Claire, Andrew and Jenna, Heather and Kirk. Loving Papa Max/Grandpa to Lauren, Tessa, Ashley, Brianna, Alexa, Marshall, Natalie and Amélie. Son of the late Mary and Harold McKelvey. Dear brother of Pearl (the late Arnold) Cowen, Vera (the late Ron) Smith, Irma (Don) Pasquino, Nancy (Jim) Ackerblade and predeceased by Frank (the late Barb MacKeigan) McKelvey. Fondly remembered by his many nieces, nephews, in-laws, extended family and many, many friends.

Max worked primarily as a front-end loader operator for the Township of Minden for 25 years, and worked on road construction and maintenance throughout Ontario for more than 50 years. Max was a well-known fixture in Minden, where he lived his whole life. He had a heart of gold and was liked by all. He could regularly be found on Main Street sharing a chat or a laugh or at the very least, a G’day.

Friends are invited to visit the family at the Gordon A. Monk Funeral Home Ltd., 127 Bobcaygeon Road, Minden, on Tuesday, October 10th, 2023 from 10:00 am until the time of the Service to Celebrate Max’s Life at 12:00 pm, followed by interment at Minden Cemetery. Reception to follow at 2:00 pm at the Royal Canadian Legion Br. 636, 12847 Hwy. 35, Minden.
