Roy William MAKI

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Roy Maki on December 30, 2012 at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital.

Roy was born October 31, 1928, in Chase River, but has resided in Lantzville for the past 20 years. He will be tremendously missed by his loving wife of 60 years, Kathleen; his son, Karl (Linda); daughter, Karen (Bart); and his grandchildren, of whom he was very proud, Nicholas, Jennifer, Anthony and Katrina. He is also survived by other extended family and friends.

Roy lived for being outdoors. After retirement from his long career working in the forest industry, he spent many hours with his wife, Kay by his side, tending their home and gardens. He especially enjoyed growing vegetables. He also enjoyed woodworking and built many projects including wooden boats.

Out of respect for Roy’s wishes, no service will be held. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the BC Children’s Hospital, in Roy’s memory.

Thank you to the many doctors, nurses and staff who looked after Roy during his short illness, as well as to the caring paramedics who attended to him.

Your condolences will be approved within one business day. You will need a valid Facebook account. Please email us if you have any questions.
