With sadness we announce that Donald “Don” Victor Stannard of Rimbey, Alberta passed away peacefully at the Rimbey Hospital and Care Centre on Saturday, April 27, 2024, at the age of 90 years.


Don was born on May 24, 1933 in Vulcan, Alberta.  He was the ninth child of ten children born to John and Blanche (née Booth) Stannard.  In his lifetime, Don was a dedicated logger, farmer, and rancher.  He farmed in the Winfield, Alberta area for sixty years.  Don’s lifestyle wasn’t just about caring for the animals or the land, but about sincere beliefs and values passed down through the generations to ensure things are left better for those yet to come.  He leaves behind a lasting legacy…
