Not sure what to say?

Back in the early 70's I worked for Richard Colley Architects and at least once a week Stewart would come in and stop at my desk and we would have long conversations about (as the obituary said) whatever was on his mind. I always liked Stewart and will remember him fondly.

My sincere condolences to his family and friends.

Dear Kathleen, Lizzy, Charles and Richard,

Our hearts are overfull, and brimming with gratitude at having spent time in Stewart's orbit, and we ache at his passing.

We send our love.
Derek and Sissy

Stewart was one of a kind and I am so glad I got to know him when he was dating Kathleen. I love the obituary that gives a wonderful look at his life. The one thing missing (and I think Stewart would agree) is that Kathleen Gholston was the most precious person in his life. From the first day I knew him she was watching out for him and bringing a much needed balance. So glad you two found each other, Kathleen, and have traveled this journey together. He was a lucky man.

Adios amigo.

Both of our parents and all of the Victor sisters enjoyed having Stewart in our lives. Our Dad called him the Riveria Romeo when he was driving Mrs. Colley's red Riveria. He always showed great compassion and friendship to our family, referring repair folks when something broke down at our Lawnview house. We really enjoyed taking the Colley children to see the Xmas lights during the holidays. Best wishes to all the Colley clan! xxoo Sally Victor
