Stew is survived by his loving wife of 57 years, Irene; 7 Children: Vance (Curt), Mark, Graeme (Janet), Beth (Rob), Neil (Renee), Laura (Patrick) and Brenda, 15 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren. He was predeceased by his eldest son Garth and daughter-in-law Marian.
After working for many years as a Longshoreman in New Westminster, BC he retired in 1979 and in 1983 moved to Ladysmith where he lived the balance of his life. He was a longtime active and respected member of the Ladysmith Eagles Club. Stew was a loving and social person. One of the very best dancers you could meet he could lead anyone to greatness.
His love and devotion to his family and friends will never be forgotten and his memory will live on in our hearts.
Thank you to all his Doctors and Nurses and to the staff of “The Lodge on 4th” in Ladysmith.
A Celebration of Life for Stew was held on October 16th, 2011 at the Ladysmith Eagles Hall.
