A. Max (DancinBear) Tetachuk

October 20, 1935 - February 4, 2017


Max (DancinBear) passed away Feb 4th peacefully at home in the arms of his wife of 58 yrs, Joanne.  He was 81.  For 22 yrs he battled with cancer but in the end, lost the war.   He enjoyed life to the fullest and leaves behind 3 great kids, Lex (Wendy), Leanne Honey (Rick), Cody (Judy), 9 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren.  Also brothers Elgin and Martin (Judy) and sister Linda Schneider (Gordie) and was predeceased by younger brother Carl.  He also will be missed and remembered by his black powder family who meant much to him.  He spent his working years driving a logging truck in Squamish and the last logs he hauled went to the Okanagan where he fulfilled his dream of a log home. During the last few years he was active in the Willowbrook Volunteer Fire Dept when not wintering in Mexico.
