Dr. Stuart MacKenzie Heywood died late on December 25. He led a full, active, and adventurous life. He was educated at the University of Massachusetts, Syracuse University, and MIT, and was a naval aviator before obtaining his Ph.D. Primarily a science researcher, he published over 200 papers and books, was mentor to 22 Ph.D. students, and was teacher, scholar, and department head. He was an avid offshore solo sailor, winning three solo Bermuda races, and sailing from Canada to South America. He leaves his daughter Leigh, son Todd, and best friend Christy. In lieu of flowers or donations, he wishes all to say "good morning" to a stranger each day, and give a friend a hug. Services will be arranged in Stonington at a future date; contact to be informed.
