Obituary

Mr. Max Protz of Yorkton, beloved husband of Vi Protz passed away on Wednesday, October 30, 2019 at the age of 84 years. Prayers will be held on Sunday, November 3 at 7:00p.m. with the funeral service following on Monday, November 4 at 10:00a.m. all from St. Mary's Ukrainian Catholic Church. The interment will follow in the Yorkton City Cemetery. Memorials in memory of Max may be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation 1738 Quebec Ave., Unit 26, Saskatoon, Sk S7K 1V9

Maxim John Protz was born on February 4, 1935, the eldest son of John and Olga Protz in the Jaroslaw District.
He was followed by siblings; Eleanor, Sylvia, Edie, Peter and Valerie, all of whom he adored.

Max started his schooling at Jaroslaw and graduated at St. Joseph’s College. He began employment with the Department of Highways and continued on until his retirement.

In 1964 Max was united in marriage to Vi Dittrick and after honeymooning in Banff they moved to Kelvington. They were blessed with four daughters whom they loved and were proud of.

Max loved to return to the Protz family farm. He enjoyed gardening, cards (hearts and crib) and woodworking. He also enjoyed fishing and spending time at their cabin at Greenwater.

In 1987 they moved back to Yorkton to be closer to family.
He has a great sense of humour and was rather strong willed, but would do anything for anyone.

He leaves to cherish his memory, his loving wife, Vi; daughters Laurielynn, Maxine (Dale) Mennie, Michelle (Rod) Robbins, Nicole (Kevin) Gagne; thirteen grandchildren Brian, Jolanta, Meshala, Chantel, Lisa, Cody, Paul, Justine, Stephen, Jasmine, Micheal, Addison and Jordyn, and ten great grandchildren.

We love you lots and cherish our fond memories of you forever.

Take it easy driving on the highways in heaven.
