Stu never met a sport he did not like. Over the years he played tennis, downhill skiing, motorcycling, sailing, target shooting and snooker. He always gave 100%, learning everything he could. If he didn’t learn something every day, he thought it wasn’t worth getting up in the morning. He was a kind and compassionate man, more concerned about other people’s feelings. He will be dearly missed by his wife, family and friends.
A private family service will be held on Friday, April 23, at 2 p.m. Those who wish to join the family from home can do so by following the view livestream link under Stuart’s obituary on the funeral home website.
