Dear Siew and Kathryn
I was shocked and saddened by Stewart's sudden passing. His death is a terrible loss to New Zealand healthcare. He was like a mentor to me and I loved working with him at Medsafe and subsequently on the polypill regulatory conundrum. Stewart had a brilliant mind and a quick wit; he was a lateral thinker but above all, an incredibly nice guy. I will miss him.
Deepest sympathies

So sorry to hear of Stewart's sudden death. While he went on to achieve great things in New Zealand, here in Scotland, I remember him as simply one of the funniest men in our medical year, Alpha 81, University of Glasgow. Taken far too soon - much love to Siew and family.

Dear Siew and Kathryn,

My thoughts are with you both. From the moment I met Kathryn, Stewart made me feel like I was part of the family. I will always remember his kindness, joyfulness, generosity and wonderful sense of humour.

All my love,

As an Auckland part of the Ministry of Health team I always tried to get some time with Stewart when I was in Wellington. He was always a good source of comradely humour and advice. He was indeed a calm and thoughtful voice of reason.

He'll be missed onmany levels.

Stewart was an outstanding colleague, always bringing his fierce intelligence, startlingly broad knowledge, wisdom, humanity, and humour to our work together. We have lost someone very special. My deepest condolences.

Hi

I have known Stewart over a number of years as a colleague. He was a man of integrity and science. A huge loss to the profession. Thank you for all your hard work over many years Stewart, thank you to your family for supporting Stewart and enabling him to fulfil his medical role in NZ. My love and condolences to you all at this time. Dr Di North

Hey Siew and Kathryn. Anne here from Seattle. I just wanted to say I have many very happy memories of times we spent together with Stewart that I will treasure always. He was an excellent host and guest and a wonderful cook, and his stories of turkey hunting always made me laugh.

Thinking of you, and of him.

With love,
Anne

I knew of Stewart before I met him personally - He was the calm and adamant voice of reason on New Zealand's National Radio that journalists turned to whenever there was a medicines regulatory affairs matter that needed addressing. It was a privilege to work under Stewart for a brief period at Medsafe. As a group manager, he was always accessible, even to the more lowly ranked staff, and always made your contribution feel like it was valued. He was always open to free and frank advice and never held grudges - He epitomised everything that was good in a leader. He had a fondness and great depth of caring and concern for all staff that worked under him.

I was greatly saddened and distressed to learn of his sudden and unexpected passing and wish to extend my deepest sympathies to Siew Gueh, Joan, Kathryn and all the family. My apologies that I cannot make the service today to pay formal respects to Stewart. A mighty totara has fallen in the forest and has left a great gap. Stewart will be missed but certainly not forgotten.

With all my sympathies and deepest condolences to the family at this sad and sorry time. Nga mihinui / Arohanui.

Stewart was the Chair of the General Assembly of SNOMED International, a role to which he brought a refreshing dose of common sense, intellect and wit in appropriate measure. A great raconteur with a passion to get the right things done for the right reasons in whichever field he touched.

The world will be a significantly poorer place without him and he shall be greatly missed by all of us in the SNOMED community.

Proud Scot, proud New Zealander, we are proud and privileged to have known him.

Dear Jessamine Family
Please accept our sincere condolences.
To many he will be remembered as a man who made a positive difference to the health of all Kiwi's through public health policy.
To the lucky few, he will be remembered as a man who could brighten every room he walked into.
Pasquale Gargiulo and the whole team from Pfizer.
