I know this may seem odd however, having been priviledged to have been a student in Stuarts Cultural Anthropology class,I hope that there will be a memorial ceremony in Gainesville. Would anyone mind if my wife and I attend in NeanderTALL attire?

It is so hard to say goodbye to my dear friend and teacher Stuart. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. Stuart will be greatly missed by so many forever. He set me on my path to life many long years ago at SFCC. I was blessed to spend much time with him in recent years - and to be with him the night he left us. I love you Stuart with all of my heart. God Bless You and I am sure you are up there in your minister's robe preaching and teaching.

I just learned of Stuart's passing this morning. I was also a student of his in the late 70's. What can one say about a man that had such impact on so many lives? He was my friend, and mentor. I had spoken with him in January and thanked him.
I would not be where I am today if it wasn't for our mutual interest in horses. I broke his filly, exercised horses on his farm, and shipped many horses with him. Everything he did he did so with passion and gusto. Which is why his classes were so interesting.
Stuart, thank you for sharing your life with us. We all shall cherish you in our hearts forever. Until we meet again.

I just heard that a long-time and much-respected faculty member at Santa Fe, Stuart McCrae passed away last midnight. Although he retired when I was new at Santa Fe, for me he was a Mensch and a true force of nature. His very presence and his reputation among those who worked closely with him were models for me of what is good about our profession and about working at Santa Fe.
Here's the famous passage from John Donne's Meditation XVII that immediately came to my mind when I heard about Stuart's passing:
“No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend's or of thine own were; any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.”
Stuart, for me, was this giant “promontory” of Santa Fe's. His death diminishes me just as his life enhanced me.

When I came to SFCC in '99 I was lost and in need of assurance. Stu saw me in the back of the class on the first day, eager to answer a question I was sure I knew the answer to. He looked up and said "the Klingon in the back has something to say...". I could not remember the answer after that but I knew I had found my home. Thanks Stu, I hope I showed you how much it mattered. I hope all who were affected, as I was, will carry his memory forward and spread it to the world. The sun shines a little brighter in the world where Stuart Mcrae has been.

I met Stuart back in 1989, and I immediately felt like family! He married my husband and I in 1992 on one of the most beautiful, perfect day in late October. My husband passed away a few years ago, and even though he was very ill and in the hospital at the time, he took the time to call and check to see how I was doing. Stuart, I will never forget your infectious laugh, your thundering voice, and you love for life and all those around you! You will be missed on this Earth, but somehow, I know you will continue to reach out to all of us. I know you and Ed must be having quite the reunion right now!! I will always love and miss you!!

Stuart sacrificed and cared for everyone he touched. He helped so many become great by inspiring them to be intelligent and confident in themselves. I have been touched by his strength and have followed his teachings of being kind and giving to all. Thank you Stuart, you will truly be missed by many and thank you for the memories...

Stuart, You were the best teacher I've ever had. Your Cultural Anthropology class at Santa Fe had an enormously positive impact on my life in 1999. Thanks for everything, and be blessed in your next adventure.

Greatest teacher ever! He will be missed by everyone of his students who were lucky enough to know him and learn from him.
