Obituary of Peter Wheatcroft Daintith

Peter "Pete" Wheatcroft Daintith

(January 13, 1932 - November 5, 2021)


Peter Wheatcroft Daintith was born in Camrose on January 13, 1932 and passed away peacefully after a short illness on November 5, 2021.  

Pete farmed on the family homestead and worked as a mechanic in Camrose for many years.  He was a lifelong farmer and loved tending the land and caring for the animals. If you wanted something fixed you called Pete. He was passionate about watching rodeos and attending farm auctions. He was an avid reader and learner and liked to keep current with world events. He always had a story to tell.

Pete is survived by his loving family: Marie, his wife of 66 years who loved him from the bottom of her heart; his sister-in-law Doris Skaret; four loving daughters: Kathleen Daintith, Nola Daintith (Rodger Hamilton), Joanne Thomsen (Gerry VanDenBosch) and Terry (Jim) Hazelwood; six grandchildren: Nathan (Taylor) Zerbe, Josh Morgan, Michael (Christine) Morgan, Victoria (Roland) Thomsen, Nick (Amanda) Hazelwood and Bryce Thomsen; five great-grandchildren: Jayden, Abby, Ty, Hannah and Oaklyn; and numerous nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by his parents Joseph and Elsie; and sisters Nan Shute, and Rose Moen.

A graveside service will be held at a later date.
