It is with great sadness the family of Stuart Park announce his passing in Claresholm, Alberta, on July 5th, 2021 at the age of 82.
The third son of Emma and Joseph, Stuart McKendrick Park, was born in Michel, BC on August 18th, 1938. The family settled in Lethbridge, Alberta when Stuart was 10.
Stuart married Beverlee Henderson on November 18th, 1961. Together they raised two children and lived all over Alberta (Lethbridge, Medicine Hat, Valleyview and Claresholm) and in BC. Always keeping busy, Stuart enjoyed working in landscaping and real estate in Lethbridge and the surrounding area.
An avid volunteer in his community, Stuart became the Aquatic Director for the YMCA in Lethbridge and Medicine Hat. He also had a hand in developing the Japanese Gardens in Lethbridge. In 2016, Stuart and Beverlee returned to Claresholm to retire.
Stuart loved the outdoors, especially fishing and hunting but his family was always his first priority. He will be dearly missed by his wife of 59 years, Beverlee, their children, Jennifer (Glenn) Miller and Clayton (Kathy) Park, three granddaughters, Chantel Zoeteman, Natasha and Kelsey and the favourite grandson, Marshall, four great-grandchildren, Eliza, Vanessa and Nora Zoeteman and Bella Miller, sister Lorna Park and brother Joseph Park.
Stuart was preceded in death by his parents, Emma and Joseph, sister Marlene (Raymond) Petit, and brothers Alan (Betty) Park, Alex (Linda) Park, Larry Park and Bruce (Paulette) Park.
There will be a Celebration of Stuart’s Life on July 16th, 2021 at 1:00 pm at Zentner Funeral Homes, 4079-1st Street West, Claresholm, Alberta with Deacon Cliff Bogdan officiating.
