Edwin "Pete" Matheson of Eckert died Sunday, Feb. 3, at the University of Colorado Hospital in Aurora. He was 73.
Mr. Matheson was born June 20, 1939, to Kenneth "Scotty" and Pearl (Rabedew) Matheson in Minturn. He graduated from school in Minturn in 1958 and worked most of his career at the Climax Mines as an electrician.
He married Marge Evitts in Golden on March 24, 1973. They had lived in Eckert since his retirement in 1983.
Mr. Matheson served as president of IBEW and was a member of the Elks. He enjoyed camping, hunting, fishing and spending time with family and friends.
He is survived by his spouse of 40 years, Marge Matheson; his children, Michelle (Mark) Bennett of Fremont, Wis., Kyle Matheson of Eckert, Jason (Precy) Matheson of Eagle and Cindy Scheafer of Gold Hill, Ore.; his grandchildren, Stephanie, Cheryl, Justine, Sean, Brad Jr. and Kelcey; a brother, Smokey Matheson of Minturn; and a sister, Margaret Palmer of Silt.
He was preceded in death by three brothers, Donald, Morris and George.
No services will be held. Mr. Matheson received a heart transplant in 1999, so family requests you consider becoming an organ donor.
