Maurice Fraser Saks, born in Calgary, Alberta, Jan. 15, 1964, gently passed away, with his partner Gordon at his side on October 30, 2013 in Campbell River, BC. Always into the wind, the wind never at his back, Maurice suffered a long term illness followed by a sudden decline.
Maurice was preceded by his mother, Elizabeth (Betty) Saks, in 1977, and by his father, James C. (Jim) Saks, in 1980. He is survived by his partner Gordon of Campbell River, BC, brothers, Paul and Jim Saks, sisters, Liza (Wally) Chupik and Julia Saks of Calgary, AB, his Aunt and Uncle Isabel and Dennis Wray, Port Moody, BC, along with his Burnaby cousins, numerous nieces, nephews and 2 great nieces and 1 great nephew.
