MICHAEL (MIECZYSLAW) MAKSYMOWICZ
January 1, 1952 - September 28, 2019
Born on New Year's Day, 1952 in Czechy, Poland, Mike immigrated to Winnipeg at the age of 14. After finishing high school, Mike began studying at Red River College, where he completed a program to become an electrician. Following graduation, Mike took employment with the Canadian Pacific Railway as a Diesel Electrician, where he served till his retirement.
Mike's personal life was filled with joy. He took great pride in his garden and especially enjoyed growing tomatoes. Mike loved fishing and spending time on the beach at his cottage, which he built himself. He also greatly enjoyed travelling.
Mike leaves to mourn his loving wife Lucille, his two sons, Andrew and Kristofer (Jessica), his grandchild Maggie, his brother John (Alice), his sister Daniela, and a large circle of extended relatives.
Mike's family would like to extend their gratitude to CancerCare Manitoba and the palliative care team at St. Boniface Hospital.
Prayers and a viewing will take place at Holy Ghost Roman Catholic Parish, 341 Selkirk Avenue, on Friday, October 4, 2019 at 9:30 a.m., with a Mass of Christian Burial to follow at 10:00 a.m.

My condolences to Mike's family. I worked with Mike for many years at CP Rail. When Mike and I retired from CP Rail Mike would stop by Kildonan Place Mall and visit with me at the lotto booth. We had many enjoyable conversations about the past and funny things we used to see and do at work. - Posted by: John Czuba (Co worker / friend) on: Oct 02, 2019
