A funeral was held Monday afternoon for a former Calgary alderman, who ran unsuccessfully for mayor on three occasions including 1980 when Ralph Klein began his political career.
Peter Petrasuk served as alderman from 1966-1974.
He also ran unsuccessfully as a Liberal candidate in federal and provincial elections.
A year after losing to Klein in the mayoral race, Petrasuk pleaded guilty to 12 counts of theft and breach of trust which included a number of his clients including his mother.
He was sentenced to 10 years in prison.
The Law Society of Alberta disbarred Petrasuk and paid out nearly $4-million in claims to defrauded clients.
Peter Petrasuk died a week ago at the age of 89.
