1931 – 2021
Louis Stetar was born in the Consul area, 1931. At the precious age of 90, he sadly passed away in his sleep at the Southwest Integrated Healthcare Facility in Maple Creek on March 13, 2021. Louis was the son of Thomas and Anna Stetar from Slovakia who established their family farm in1912 south of Consul. Following in his dad’s footsteps Louis was a hard-working farmer/rancher. Looking after cows, which he had names for every one, was a labor of love. He could spend all day outside in all kinds of weather getting ready for whatever needed to be done, feeding cows, spring seeding, calving, and harvesting. Louis was good at fixing machinery and he had a passion for building grandfather clocks and a variety of chime clocks, small boats, not to mention the house we lived in he built himself. He was very resourceful, frugal and enjoyed going to auctions. Some of Louis' favorite hobbies included golfing with Monica, curling on his teams and he was proud of his award-winning apple pies, which were the talk of the town.
Louis managed the farm by himself from 1968, when his dad passed away, to 1985 when he married June. They had one beautiful daughter, Monica (Daymon) and one grandson, Andrew. He leaves behind his only sister, Annie French. Also, nephew Tommy (Marjorie, Ryan, Jodi) French, niece Joanne (Jim, Renee, Trent) Behrman, niece-in-law Maureen Hodgins (Cory, Megan and Darcy) French.
Louis was loyal to his community and whenever the community asked for help, Louis was there. He was a strong, independent, Godly man who inspired all of us. Louis will be at rest in the Consul cemetery. God Bless you Louis, from your wife and family, we will always love you.
