My deepest condolences to the Stewart Family. I am in shock by the news of Bill's passing - an old colleague I first met in late 80's in San Francisco.

Bill was in sales for the Foodservice division and I happended to provdie financail support for that area. Bill was never in a hurry, he took interest in people in spite of his busy traveling schedule with long commute via public transportation (he and his young family lived in Sebastopol then.) Bill often stopped by to chat.

The picture of him in the New Hope website was the Bill I remembed - always preppy carrying a very expensive Hartmann briefcase given to him by his father; Bill was upbeat and full of life. He realized we worked in the backoffice were often overlooked, so even through my work had very little to do with his sales/bonus. Yet, he made the time.

I remember:

(1) One day Bill showed up with bloody scratch marks on his face! He was playing rough with his son- Wil, and showed me Wil's picture. Wil probably was no older than 8 then.
(2) Bill told me that he got to know a homeless young man who routinely sat on the bench right outside Hyatt Regency by the Cable Car stop. Back then, there were very few homeless people- especailly inthe SF Financial District. For years, everytime I passed that bench, I thought about Bill and his kindness. The bench is still there today.
(3) Bill loved his young family. One year, he told me he posted all the bullet issues in his house to teach his children about the coming election.
(4) I had met Bill's brother Todd - a bigger than life's personality and knew Bill stopped Todd's house to help him cleaning his roof.
(5) Yes, Bill was a total health nut. His boss told me one day that Bill was on a no fat diet and dropped his body fat content to some rediculous %. Indeed, Bill was into health living before we even knew its meaning.

We did not stay in contact after Bill moved out of California, but after all these years I remembered him fondly and am very saddened by his passing. He really was a gentle soul. Bill left us too soon. In our very brief encounter, he left a mark and I belive he did that to all the people he had met, and for that I will be forever grateful to have known this very decent and kind man.

With gatitude.

Bill wore his cape well and always was willing to share! I'm more than grateful to have known him and I'll honor his teachings with me in this life. Thank you Bill! Huge hug, Tara

To say goodbye to a fun loving, adventurous person like Bill can be most difficult...sometimes unbearable. May God give you a helping hand as you adjust to life without him.
