Clyde Eugene ‘Gene’ Stanford

May 16, 1943 – December 7, 2020
In loving memory of Clyde Eugene (Gene) Stanford born May 16, 1943 in Calgary, Alberta and passed away on December 7, 2020 at the age of 77 years.
Gene was a successful businessman and accomplished sculptor and carver. He enjoyed travel, good food, watching and participating in sports.
Gene’s open and friendly nature made him also a successful negotiator. Always ready to consider a compromise, good will and fairness made him a natural defender of the defenceless.
He truly was a friend to people; always ready to help. Like his wife, he enjoyed a strong bond and membership with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints which was reflected in his lifestyle.
Gene battled with health problems for years. He endured pain and trials with no complaint but shared his love for others with everyone he met. His wife said of him “Gene is ever more focused on the Lord. This is the reason he can maintain an equilibrium under the most trying circumstances. It is truly a miracle. I cannot think of anyone able to endue as faithful and cheerful as Gene in carrying his cross”
Gene is survived by brothers Wade Stanford and Thomas Stanford and one daughter Debra M. Stanford.
Gene is predeceased by his loving wife Ursula; they enjoyed a very close and loving relationship for many years; parents Clyde and Mildred Stanford and sister Marcia Renn.
Gene will be greatly missed by his friends and associates for his smiling personality and positive example under difficult circumstances.
Funeral Services for the late Mr. Gene Stanford were held on Saturday, December 12, 2020 at 11:00 A.M. at the chapel of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
