GARTH DONALD PETERSON, beloved husband of Mary (Gejdos) of Spring Coulee, Alberta passed away at the Foothills Hospital on Friday, December 5, 2014, at the age of 86 years.

    Hello Chris,

    I was reading the newspaper the other week and put the dots together of the name Peterson, and the rest followed as I realized that this was the passing of the father of a special acquaintance of long ago . Please accept our most heartfelt sympathies for your loss. Our thoughts are with you and your family during this difficult time.
