Peterson family from Stauffer or Nordegg Alberta

I am looking for information on my husband's Father, his name was Walter Peterson(sen) and he was born in Stauffer Alberta. I have very little to go on except that Walter's mother remarried and her new married name was Christian and they lived in Nordegg. Walter Peterson would have been born sometime between 1905 and 1920. We know that he served in WW2 and married Elizabeth Adolf from Hanna Alberta. My husband, Keith is the youngest of 3 children, he has a brother Walter and a sister Gloria. When Keith's brother Walter went to get a passport, the records showed that their last name was spelled Petersen, but on Keith's parents marriage certificate it is spelled Peterson. We are looking for any information at all.
