Steven Eugene Stanich (December 18, 1931 – August 18, 2021)

With heavy hearts, we announce the passing of our Dad and Papa, Steven Eugene Stanich, on Wednesday, August 18, 2021.

Dad was born on December 18, 1931, to Peter and Paulina Stanich. He was one of 10 siblings and was the last surviving member of the Peter and Paulina Stanich family.

Dad actively farmed into his early 80’s but remained part of the farm until his passing. Horses were one of his passions, from Gymkhana, Horse Shows, and Cutting Competitions. Dad had a love for his family and taught each one of us a good work ethic. He will be missed by many.

Survived by his 4 children: Stevie, Brenda Day, Rick, Terry (Linda); grandchildren: Nicole, Amanda, David, Corey, Tye and Shanlee; as well as 7 great-grandchildren with 1 due any time.

A Mass of Christian Burial was held on Tuesday, August 24, 2021, at 11:00 am, at St. Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Rycroft, AB. Interment followed at Old Mission Cemetery as well as luncheon at Rycroft Community Hall.
