Beth, Christine and Family, I was so fortunate to visit with Stuart last summer on his porch and I discovered the Notice yesterday, a God Wink. Last summer on my walk in the area it was the first time I saw Stuart since John K and Loraine C were married in the late 70s. Spent lots of time sitting in John’s kitchen with a beer or two hearing your Dad’s advice on life, responsibility, always to do the right thing with honesty and integrity. He was an outstanding ‘Family Counsellor’. Glad you are all prospering, let’s hope we can now stay touch again and talk about the old times again, it’s been much too long! God Bless your Mom Vivian. She is and was a sweetheart. Stewart will be eternally missed.
My sincere condolences to Vivian, Beth and rest of the family.
Though it has been far too many years that have passed, I certainly still have the fondest, warm memories of Stuart and time spent together on Charlton Avenue, Hamilton.
I hope you are all able to find some solace in cherishing the good times and a life filled with his love.
May God forevermore have a special place for you Stuart in his keeping.
My deepest condolences Vivian and family. I will certainly miss seeing Stuart at St. Joesph’s 9:00 am mass. He always greeted me with a smile and hug, I will cherish those memories and miss him. May God give you all strength at this difficult time.

When Paulette told me about seeing Stuart’s obituary only today, I felt saddened that we had not known sooner, and that so much time has passed since we moved out of the area. Growing up across the road on Charlton Ave., we remember so many fun times at the Walshes, and eating salt cod cakes made by Vivian….so delicious! Our sincerest condolences to Vivian and the girls, and to the rest of his loving family. Rest in peace, Stuart.
Beth and family,
We were deeply saddened to read of Stuart’s passing today and especially not to have been able to show our respects on Saturday.
We really enjoyed your Dad in all our years of hockey together, he was a real gentlemen.
We wish you strength, our hearts are with you.
With love Jim & Gwen
My condolences to Stuart’s wife Vivian and family. I became friend’s with Stuart at church as he always greeted my father. He and my dad worked together on the railway at Dofasco. He was always so friendly with my dad and after my father passed away he continued to show love and friendship to myself and my children. It was a delight to get to know him. My deepest sympathy for your loss and feelings of sadness at this most difficult time. I will miss Stuart’s smiling face and warm hugs. I am sorry I was unable to express my sympathy in person as I did not find out of Stuart’s passing until Sunday at mass. Take care.
