Not sure what to say?

I am humbled and grateful to have met Bill at Fable (Food and Beverage Leadership Exchange) and considered him a friend. In his company, I always lived life just that much better and laughed that much louder. Bill was a modern day troubadour, a class act and a wonderful human being. Professionally, he carved tracks in the Organic Food industry that were bested only by his mountain ski runs on bluebird days on sunny peaks. He saw "it" happening before anyone knew what "it"...

My deepest condolences to the Stewart Family. I am in shock by the news of Bill's passing - an old colleague I first met in late 80's in San Francisco.

Bill was in sales for the Foodservice division and I happended to provdie financail support for that area. Bill was never in a hurry, he took interest in people in spite of his busy traveling schedule with long commute via public transportation (he and his young family lived in Sebastopol then.) Bill often stopped by to chat.

We are so sorry to hear of the death of Bill Stewart. We send love and hugs to Will and Elizabeth, and the rest of the Doane Stewart family. Marnie Paulus

Bill wore his cape well and always was willing to share! I'm more than grateful to have known him and I'll honor his teachings with me in this life. Thank you Bill! Huge hug, Tara

To say goodbye to a fun loving, adventurous person like Bill can be most difficult...sometimes unbearable. May God give you a helping hand as you adjust to life without him.

I have never met Bill or Pam, however mutual friends John and Sharon Beaupre have spoken highly about you both, and suggested that my wife Sharon and I should try to hook-up somehow.We have lived in Durango for 47 years, and own the Ore House Restaurant.Sadly, that connection never happened.Our sincerest condolences go out to you for your loss.

Most Sincerely,

Bill (Beatle) Abshagen

To Pam and Fam, it is with deep sadness that I send my condolences to all of you. Life is short and Bill lived it to the fullest. I am so sorry for your loss, it is unimaginable and we all feel your sorrow for miles and miles remembering all the smiles and joy that Bill brought with him wherever he be. I promise that we will all ski a run for him, play a cowboy song in his honor and keep him in our hearts as we continue to fill our lives together. Bill reminds me that we are part of...

In loving memory of a wonderful person. We will love you and miss you always.

Farewell my friend. You will be dearly missed. But when sorrow visits I will wrap myself in "the cape" of our funny, adventurous memories together from "back in the day." And as Jimi famously said, "Meet me on the next world, but don't be late." Well, I plan on being late, sir. But I'll be glad to meet all your new friends, and some of our mutual old ones. Until we meet again ..........
