April 6, 1918 - June 12, 2012 Passed away peacefully and with his usual dignity in Beaconsfield at ninety-four years. Born to William and Ethel (King) in Montreal, youngest of four siblings, Norman, Allan and Dorothy (Clelland).

During World War II he served as a captain in the Royal Canadian Artillery. After the war he became a Chartered Accountant and a partner with McDonald Currie (later PWC). Stewart was an active elder in the First Presbyterian Church of Montreal. A lifelong salmon fisherman, he enjoyed many trips with his friends and nephews, fishing in Iceland just three years ago.

Stewart was the family touchstone, great company and an uncle to many, and his spirit will be deeply missed. He is survived by nephews (Bill and Neil Clelland and Bill Meldrum), nieces (Norma Meldrum and Sheila Clelland), grandnephews, grandnieces and in-laws. The family is grateful to the staff at the Sunrise Residence for the care Stewart received during his last months.
