H.W. “Pete” Felsted
1937 ~ 2015

H.W. “Pete” Felsted passed away peacefully after a brief battle with pancreatic cancer, on November 17, 2015 in Utah, surrounded by his adoring children and siblings.

Pete was born February 2, 1937 in Logan, Utah to Harold Ney and Effie Winward Felsted. Raised in Grand Coulee and Othello Washington, he met his beautiful wife Carol at BYU, married in the LDS Idaho Falls Temple and later received his Juris Doctor from the University of Idaho.

He spent his life in service, formally as a Board Member for Goodwill, PTA President, Pasco School Board Member, Board of Directors of Columbia Tractor and informally constantly performing random acts of kindness.

He loved Kiwanis, from chaperoning at those all-night graduation parties, calling bingo at the county fair to flipping pancakes at the 4th of July breakfast. One of his most treasured moments was being awarded the Kiwanis Hixson Fellow Award.

Pete established a distinguished legal career, culminating in 28 years of service as District Court Judge. He was dedicated to kindness and fairness for all.

A loving husband of 51 years, he spent a decade caring for his dear wife, as she valiantly struggled with MS. He loved his Carol dearly and deflected any praise on to her. When recently told that he’s been a perfect father he said, “The only person I know who was perfect was your mother.”

A devoted father, he made innumerable sacrifices for his six children, whether it was driving the old car so everyone else had reliable transportation, funding college education or filling someone’s cupboards with groceries.

From cutting up apples, sending Birthday cards, to picking up kids from the bus stop he relished his role as grandfather. Grandkids will forever remember all the trips to McDonald’s and pizza nights.

He daily spoke words of love, encouragement and unsolicited advice to everyone, from friends and neighbors, to the person next to him in line at Subway.

Dedicated to church, he was a temple worker and diligent home teacher. He also loved BYU football and taking missionaries out to lunch.

He was preceded in death by his wife Carol, his parents Harold and Effie, brother Brent and great-grandchildren Telaai and Khrii Wiberg.

He is survived by his siblings and their spouses: William (Valerie), Effie (Merrill Smart), Raymond, Peter (Karen); his children and spouses Scott (Lynette), Ralene (Tim Wiberg), Karen (Brent Ripley), Marc, Janell (William Waters), Angela (Pete Larsen); 25 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren, many dear nieces and nephews, countless friends, including his dear friends, Jim and Lola Fish.

Memorial Services will be held Monday, November 23rd, 4:00 p.m. at the LDS church located at 2004 North 24th Avenue, Pasco, Washington.
