Steve Sapeta passed away peacefully at the Crowsnest Pass Continuing Care Centre on October 17, 2018 at the age of 90 years.
Steve was born at Todd Creek AB to parents Carl and Stefania Sapeta on October 27, 1927. He spent all of his years on the family ranch working along side of his parents and his brothers. He loved and continued this way of life up until six months prior to his passing. His love of ranching led him to become one of the first shareholders in the Waldron Ranch Cooperative. Steve will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
He is survived by his sister, Anne Stickney of Blairmore, AB; his nephews, Steve Sapeta of Bellevue, AB and Michael (Tina) Sapeta of Blairmore, AB; his nieces, Shelley Santoni-Benesch of Bellevue, AB, Marilyn (David) Sapeta of Bellevue, AB and Lori Sapeta of Peachland, BC; as well as his extended family, Randy and Ginny Donahue and Derek Smith.
Steve was predeceased by his parents, Carl and Stefania and his brothers, Walter, Bill, Eddie and Karl.
