McCRAE, Stewart Alden
December 30, 1929 – September 2, 2015
It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of Stewart Alden McCrae, the loving husband of Mary, at Carewest Sarcee after an 8 year battle with cancer. Stewart was born in Gladstone, Manitoba and graduated from the University of Manitoba with a degree in Law. He practiced in his home town of Gladstone for a short time and then came to Calgary in 1957 to work for the California Standard Company (now Chevron Canada Resources) in the Legal Department. He took a leave from Chevron for 9 ½ years to enter politics with the Legislative Assembly of Alberta. He was Minister Without Portfolio responsible for Calgary affairs for one term and then became Minister of Government Services in 1979 and held that portfolio until he retired in 1982. He returned to Chevron for ten years and retired in 1992. He was active in the Triwood Community Centre, coaching hockey and baseball while his three sons were growing up. Golf became a passion for him, being a member of the Bearspaw Country Club and also spent many years curling in various curling clubs. Stewart was a very humble and private person who loved his family dearly, as they loved him. Stewart is survived by two sons, Mike (Lori) and Clint (Chantal); and five grandchildren: Justin, Katelyn (Brody), Brianna, Jacob and David. He was predeceased by his son Brian in 2008, three brothers and two sisters and leaves behind one dear sister, Janet (Bob) and many nieces and nephews. Funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Luke's Catholic Church (corner of Northmount Drive and Northland Drive NW) on Wednesday, September 9, 2015 at 11:00 a.m. Private graveside service to follow at Queen's Park Cemetery.
