PETERSON, Stanton Frederick

May 10, 1923 – Strathmore, Alberta
May 4, 2014 – Calgary, Alberta

The family of Stanton F. Peterson is sad to announce his quiet passing at Colonel Belcher Veteran’s Care Center on Sunday, May 4, 2014 at the age of 90 years.

Stan returned to Calgary after serving in Europe in WWII and started a successful family business that continues to this day. Stan was displaced from his home by the 2013 High River floods and was very grateful for excellent care he received since then from the staffs at the Nanton Silver Willow Lodge, the Calgary Chinook Care Center and at the Colonel Belcher.

He is survived by his sons Alec, Ken and Rod (Judy); daughters Linda Smith (Garry) and Irene Dear (Bob); their mother Margaret Peterson (nee Purves); several grandchildren and his sister Opal. He was predeceased by his father Charles Arthur Peterson; mother Katie Louella Peterson (Witz); brother Tom and sisters Gladys, Florence, Elsie and Helen.

A private family gathering was held in his memory. Condolences may be forwarded through

    I’m sorry for the loss of such a caring & loving father-in-law, and the best grandpa my two children (Shane & Kendrah) have had, he was always there for them. It was a very hard time for us all specially his Granddaughter. Nobody would let us know where he was at..I pray he died a very proud man, and that his family gave him the love & dignity he surely would’ve loved..Sadly missed, by us all;!!!! Now my children can have some closure in the knowing that he is truly gone.. Happy, No more pain, FREE to do as you want now ,,SOARING LIKE AN EAGLE NOW!! forever loved & missed,,Loved you always & Forever!!! Love. Irene & grandkids.
