A mournful trumpet call filled the air Sept. 18 as Peter Lougheed made his final stop at the University of Alberta.
U of A dignitaries, alumni, students, and former and current members of Lougheed’s fraternity, Delta Upsilon, gathered at the entrance to Rutherford House as the hearse bearing Alberta’s most beloved premier and one of the U of A’s most distinguished alumni passed by.
Lougheed, 84, died Sept. 13 and lay in state earlier this week at the Alberta Legislature before his body was returned to Calgary for burial.
Lougheed lived in Rutherford House during his time as a student. The stately home once served as the living quarters for Delta Upsilon.
A young trumpeter and member of the fraternity played the “Last Post” and the “Rouse” as a poignant farewell to Lougheed during the brief stop at Rutherford House.
“Peter Lougheed is a giant among the U of A’s thousands of extraordinary alumni,” said President Indira Samarasekera, paying tribute to the former Alberta premier through the university blog.
