Title Alam C Peterson
Description Manti City Councilman. He was fiddler in the Mormon Miracle Pageant for many years. He was a charter member of the American Legion Post 31 and served in all the offices but one. He organized, played in and directed a dance band, which played not only in Manti but in adjoining towns. Their music was very good and their price very reasonable. They participated in town programs and other special events, always free of charge. On the social front he scored high. He had many, many friends and few if any enemies. He was as pleasant to the town drunk on the comer as he was to the President of the Bank or any other dignitary. He was as helpful and considerate of the old Danish widow, who could speak no English, as he would have been to his own mother. He saw good in everyone and chose not to find fault with any man. On the church front he served as Young Men's President, Elder's Quorum President, Councilor in the Bishopric, Bishop of the Manti South Ward for ten years, High Councilman in the South Sanpete Stake for twelve years, and an Ordinace Worker in the Manti Temple for ten years. He was a teacher in the Sunday School, served as a Genealogy Ward Chairman, and was an active home teacher until his death August 14, 1981, at which time he passed peacefully away on his wife's birthday at the age of 88. One of Alma's favorite quotes was from Benjamin Franklin: Dost thou love Life? Then do not squander time, For that is the stuff Life is made of. Alma loved life and used his time wisely and well. Truly he was a High Man at all Ranges. Doc. Personal interviews and notes from the journal of Alma C. Peterson 54
