George Robert Joseph Pivert

September 6, 1932 ~ October 5, 2016 (age 84)


George Robert Pivert passed away suddenly at Stettler Hospital Complex at the age of 84.  He was born to Robert and Annie Pivert by a midwife on the family farm at Fenn on September 6, 1932. George was the youngest and only boy. With older sisters Marguerite, Cecilia and Lucy life was always busy with chores and of course adventures.  He went to Fritzhill School until 1943 when they moved to a farm west of Mirror.  After finishing his education at Mirror School, George bought his first car and moved to Stettler. In June of 1950 he was hired as a driver at Esso and never left until he retired some 45 years later. George met Kathryn (Kay) Sundset and were married at Christ-King Catholic Church on September 5, 1955.  To this union were born Theresa, Ken, Doug and Donald.  In 1974 they moved to Rochon Sands where George was the Mayor for 15 years and served several more years on council.  They eventually moved back to Stettler and after Kay’s passing George moved into Heart Haven where he enjoyed many years before moving to Points West Living in May of 2016. The family enjoyed many trips including Disneyland.  Camping was their favourite pastime and they belonged to Stettler Heart of Alberta Trailer Club as well as many others clubs.  Here they met many people and established life long friendships.  Winter was spent snowmobiling until George semi-retired and he and Kay became snowbirds.  Yuma was their home away from home.  George loved music, dancing, golfing and playing cards.        He will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by his children, Theresa Thiessen, Ken (Kathy) Pivert, Doug (Colleen) Pivert; grandchildren, Rob (Heather) Hutchinson, Andrew Hutchinson, Cody (Kelsey) Pivert, Kevin (Nikki) Pivert, Renee (Ryan) Miller, Toni (Troy) Wiggins, Nadine Pivert, James (Jessica) Pivert; great-grandchildren, Brooke, Julia, Adria, Tyler, Rowan, Denton, Elizabeth, Cooper, Layna, Morgan, Makenna, Jordan, Jaxson, Charlie; sisters, Cecilia Hunter, Lucy Hicks and numerous other family and friends.
