From: Kim Schumacher
Relation: Met in 1974 during the C B days

I am so sorry to here of Mak’s passing. We go back to the days of CBers when we met in Abbotsford 1974. Many times sitting around a CB talking to people from all over. We also were both involved in the 4×4 Clubs and eventually camping together. We would see each other on a regular basis when Johnnys Towing had their yard on South Fraser Way in Clearbrook. My house backed onto the yard so walking over to visit happened on a regular basis. When Johnny’s and Jack’s towing were both in the same yard on Paramount I would still see Mak on a regular basis. I worked on Marshall across from Paramount and stopping by was a regular occurrence. Many times I would visit Mak at night to keep him company when he was dispatching. That boy always had a funny story to tell. I also used to ride with him in the Tow truck on calls occasionally. I must confess that over the past few years Mak and I had not crossed paths too often but I will always consider him a good friend. My condolences to Debbie and Otto . RIP Mak. You will be missed.

Our deepest sympathy to Mac’s family.

From: Bernie Kushnir
Relation: Friend

Rest In Peace my friend & THANK YOU! – I was saddened to hear of your passing and wish my deepest sympathies to your dad and loved ones. Had it not been for you and Rory allowing me into your inner circle of friends at Brownies all those years ago , I would never have met, nor would I have enjoyed the last 34 years of marriage with my love Caroll, our 3 kids and 2 grand kids would never have happened had it not been for your friendship. Had it not been for you forcing me to grow a pair, and then embarrassing me into asking Caroll on a date those 40 years ago, I never would have had the great life I have had so again I THANK YOU for that Mak!
It has been about 12 years since we last saw each other but still fondly remember your infectious humour, your big laugh, your friendship. I only wish and pray you have had the very best life and love you made possible for me …Rest in Peace my friend.
