Stu has been my accountant for 25 years. I am so very very sorry for your loss. I have been battling cancer for 20 years. Stu stuck with my wife and me when my business dried up. He helped us financially as well. A good good man who always had a kind word for me in my ongoing struggles. May God give your family the strength to get through this.
All our love Deloris and Bill McCrevan

I was so sad to hear of Stuart’s recent passing. My name is Leah and I was Stuarts office manager at his CPA firm for many years. He was more than a boss he had become a friend and even more like family over the years. I send my deepest condolences to Judith, Stuarts 3 children Alison, Rachel and Aaron and now many grandchildren. Stuarts kind heart will be well received in heaven. He always would give the shirt off his back for the people he loved and the years I worked for him he taught me so much professionally and personally that I still use today in my current career. He always spoke so highly of his wife and children while working daily with him. Even though I never met his children I feel like I knew you from his stories. I also send my love to his professional partner Josephine Casucci. We all worked together for many years and she was so devoted to Stuart both professionally and personally. He was a loved man and will be missed greatly in this world by me and so many others.

I am truly sorry for your loss
