November 5, 1957 – November 14, 2008


It is with truly heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved Max Botelho.

Our family would like to express our heartfelt thanks to all of our dear friends, family, and neighbours who continue to bless us with their countless acts of kindness, gifts and prayers throughout this difficult time. For over a year, Max fought his battle with cancer the way he lived his life, with great courage and humility.

We would also like to convey our gratitude to the staff of Mills Memorial Hospital, Dr. Fourie, and the Oncology Department. Our special thanks to Dr. DeBruin for the personal care and compassion for Max and our family and Father Terry Brock of Sacred Heart Parish for his spiritual support and friendship.

Max will forever be remembered for his love of his family, his strong work ethic, his deep dedication to his faith and his caring thoughtfulness towards others.

Max is survived by his loving wife Maria, daughters Trina and Amanda, and son Kory. Although we will miss him, we are very thankful to have been blessed to have known and loved such a wonderful man.

“Blessed are the pure in heart,


for they shall see God.”

Matthew 5:8
