It is with great sadness that the family of Gilbert Stewart announce his passing on Thursday, May 11, 2023 at the age of 67. As he wished, he passed away in the home that he built, surrounded by his loving family.
Gil will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 45 years, Brenda; children Anne and Andrew (Jamie); grandchildren Markus, Ethan and Alyssa; sister Kim (David) Roussel, nieces and nephews; and his many friends.
Gil was predeceased by his parents, Gilbert and Elizabeth; and his siblings, Barb (Danny) and Bob (Pat).
Gil loved spending time with Brenda and their family. He was a loving Grandpa (G-Pa) to his 3 grandchildren, whom he loved so much. Gil enjoyed spending time at the hockey arena, both playing hockey for 40 years and coaching for 25 years. He had a great love for fishing.
Thank-you to his family, friends and the many healthcare professionals for all of their support in helping Gil stay at home comfortably.
