An ultraviolet complete particle model is constructed for the observed particles of the standard model. The quantum field theory associates infinite derivative entire functions with propagators and vertices, which make quantum loops finite and maintain Poincaré invariance and unitarity of the model. The electroweak model group is treated as a broken symmetry group with non-vanishing experimentally determined boson and fermion masses. A spontaneous symmetry breaking of the vacuum by a scalar Higgs field is not invoked to restore boson and fermion masses to the initially massless Lagrangian of the standard model. The hierarchy naturalness problem of the Higgs boson mass is resolved and the model contains only experimentally observed masses and coupling constants. The model can predict a stable vacuum evolution. Experimental tests to distinguish the standard model from the alternative model are proposed. The finite quantum field theory can be extended to quantum gravity.
