Stav, Kerm

Kerm Stav

Kerm Stav of Fort Macleod, beloved husband of Evelyn Stav, passed away peacefully at the age of 84 years on Wednesday, Aug. 17, 2011, on the ranch.
Kerm was born Sept. 14, 1926, and went to school at Val Marie, Sask., living with his parents and 10 siblings on the family farm.
Kerm and his twin brother, Ken, rode PFRA pastures in Saskatchewan in their late teens. Then, Kerm moved to Alberta working on the McIntyre Ranch at Magrath, and then on the A7 Ranche at Nanton in the late 1940s.
Kerm took great interest in wildlife, which led to becoming a guide for big game hunting. He also spent many hours carving leather into beautiful tooled pieces. He was the first Canadian Cutting Champion in 1955 and always enjoyed watching the sport in his later years. His interest in horses and ranching was with him life-long.
In 1959 Kerm and Evelyn started their family and bought their ranch west of Fort Macleod.
Kerm is survived by his wife Evelyn; children Janice (Mark Daley), Kendall (JoAnne) and Randy (LeeAnne); seven grandchildren; two great grandchildren; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and their families.
Kerm was predeceased by five brothers and two sisters.
A celebration of Kerm’s life will be held at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 24, 2011, at the Fort Macleod and District Community Hall, 301 25th St., Fort Macleod.
In lieu of flowers donations may be made to STARS Foundation, 416 10th St. N., Lethbridge, T1H 2C7.
