With deep sadness and comfort, the family of Stephen Glenn Tollestrup announce his passing May 22, 2017 at the age of 83, after a brave and valiant battle with Alzheimer’s disease.

He is survived by his children Glenn (Linda) Tollestrup, Martie (Danny) Murphy, Jennifer (Barry Weintraub) Tollestrup, Jim (Cindy) Tollestrup, Amie (Scott) Yancey, Rachel (Doug) Atwood, Richard (Ruth) Tollestrup and Joanne Steed, along with 22 grandchildren and four great grandchildren. He was pre-deceased by Carol, sons Tim & Matthew, grandson Stephen Tollestrup III, brother Jon (Jane) Tollestrup and sisters Sidney (Gordon) Spackman and Shirley (Robert) Tibbetts.

In 1988 they ventured into fast food franchises, opening the first Alberta “Wendy’s” franchise. The company then branched into other franchise brands spanning all across Alberta. Steve and his father were very proud of the company they created and grateful for the extended family of people (many of them related) who have worked to build it over the last 80 years.

Steve was a gentle, kind and fun-loving soul. When he wasn’t at work or with his family, he could be found on the golf course or with the Big Gulp Gang (Steve with best buddies Doran Johnson and Phil Leier) at the local 7-11. Steve was a lifetime member of the YMCA, and remained physically active throughout his retirement years.

During his battle with Alzheimer’s, Steve was taken care of by his family, including especially his daughter Rachel, her husband Doug Atwood and their loving family, and more recently by the kind staff at Park Meadows Village.
