Edwin “Pete” Matheson, of Eckert, passed away on Sunday at University of Colorado Hospital in Aurora. He was 73 years of age.

Pete was born June 20, 1939, to Kenneth “Scotty” and Pearl (Rabedew) Matheson in Minturn. He graduated from Minturn in 1958 and worked most of his career at the Climax Mines as an electrician and served as president of the IBEW.

He and Marge (Evitts) Matheson were married in Golden on March 24, 1973. They have resided in Eckert since his retirement June 1983.

Pete was an active member of the Elks Club. He enjoyed camping, hunting and fishing — his trademark being able to tell a really “good” story. But his favorite pastime was time with family and friends.

He is survived by his spouse of 40 years, Marge Matheson; children Michelle (Mark) Bennett of Fremont, Wis.; Kyle Matheson, of Eckert, Jason (Precy) Matheson, of Eagle, and Cindy Scheafer, of Gold Hill, Ore.; grandchildren Stephanie, Cheryl, Justine, Sean, Brad Jr. and Kelcey; brother Smokey Matheson of Minturn; sister Margaret Palmer of Silt; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Pete was preceded in death by his parents, Scotty and Pearl Matheson, and brothers Donald, Morris and George.

He requested no services be held. In honor of his memory, the family requests you consider giving the “gift of life” by becoming an organ donor. After receiving a heart transplant in 1999, he and his family enjoyed 14 years of additional memories.

Arrangements are under the care and direction of Taylor Funeral Service and Crematory.
