About Max Carroll

Everett Maxwell (Max) Carroll was born in Nashwaaksis, NB, and after lengthy illness, died at VGH in his 86th year. Max was predeceased by only son Cameron Peter in 1986 and only daughter Mary-Jane in 2022, who died following cardiac arrest at St. Paul’s Hospital. The loss of his children had a profound effect on Max.

Max is survived by his loving wife of 61 years, Evelyn, and siblings Norris (Heather) of Sarasota, Florida; Connie (Raymond) of Holtville, NB; and Mavis (Steve) of California. In addition, nephew Sean Carroll (Suzanne) and niece Joni Carroll added joy to his life.

Max worked as an educator and school administrator for 35 years in School District 38, in Richmond, BC. He earned the affection of his students and the respect of teachers and parents alike. Max was an avid fly fisherman and enjoyed returning to the Miramichi River in New Brunswick as often as he could. There he could enjoy telling stories to his many cousins and their families. He also loved to fly small planes and for a time owned a Cessna 182, which gave him great pleasure.

  • Mr. Carroll was one of the best principals I’ve ever known and had the privilege of working for. He inspired, encouraged and supported me every step in my career. Even today as I do my work as a principal there is not a day that goes by that he is not far as the many guiding principles that he instilled in me are utilized. He had an amazing heart and I will always remember him. My only regret, but now a life lesson, is that staying in touch with those you adore is so important - you don’t want to miss out on telling someone just how impactful, appreciated and find you are of them. Mr. Carroll, you were a big part of my life! Thank you for being you and all that you did. You will always be in my thoughts.

  • Max hired me in Richmond at the beginning of my second career. We subsequently discovered that his wife and my father worked together and had a good laugh about it. He was a pleasure to work with and had a great sense of humour. In later years I met him a few times in Costco and we had lively catch ups. Condolences to his wife. He will be missed and fondly remembered.
