Private Family Service

Funeral service will be live-streamed. Please go to on Monday, April 19, 2021 at 2:00 p.m.

It is with great sadness that we inform you that Max Slivka passed away on Sunday, April 18th, 2021 in his sleep at the Palliative Care Unit at Baycrest Hospital. He is survived by his wife, Naomi Slivka Stein, who was lovingly by his side until his last breaths, his brother, Leo, as well as his children, Jonathan and Mikey, daughters-in-law, Atessa and Aarti, and grandchildren, Sacha and Simone. He fought a long battle with illness, never with a complaint and always with the utmost optimism. He will be remembered as a bright and charming man who livened up the room, schmoozing with friends and family always with a joke and a smile. Due to the quarantine restrictions, a small private ceremony will be held for him at the Steeles Memorial cemetery on Monday, April 19th at 2:00 pm. As Max was a social creature at his core who loved his friends and family dearly, it would mean a great deal to have you join the service via a live stream (

In lieu of any flowers, please feel free to make a donation to “Out of the Cold”.

A virtual shiva minyan for the family of the late Max Slivka z”l, husband of Naomi Stein, will take place via Zoom video conference on Thursday, April 22 at 7:00 pm.
