Obituary for Max Winkler (Pincher Creek)

Max Winkler of Pincher Creek, formerly of Twin Butte, AB, passed away peacefully at the Pincher Creek Health Care Centre on September 19, 2017. He was born on April 18, 1931 in Marienstein, southern Germany, (Bavaria) in the German Alps.
In 1953, Max immigrated to Canada at age 22. He had a wide variety of work and in 1959, he was fortunate in becoming a Park Warden, who served the National Parks of Jasper, Kootenay, Forillon Quebec, and Waterton. His career of 28 years with Parks Canada was the highlight of his life. To the end of his days, he was deeply involved in environmental issues.
After his retirement in 1987, he and Julie moved to their beautiful 160 acres in Twin Butte where he brought his childhood dream into reality by becoming a farmer-rancher.
He leaves behind his loving wife of 61 years, Julie; his son Terry and daughter-in-law Ursula of Jasper, Alberta, and his grandchildren: Peter and Lisa. He deeply loved his family as well as his adopted country. He was one good Canadian Citizen.
A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, October 28, 2017 at the Pincher Creek United Church at 2:00 pm with Minister Judith Walker officiating.
