Passed away peacefully at the May Court Hospice, surrounded by his loving family and caring staff on Tuesday, January 3, 2017, at the age of 85 years. Cherished husband of Tance for 58 years. A beloved father to Pam and the late Carolee. "Bampa" to his cherished granddaughters, Alison and Susie. Dear brother of Sandra Staples (Bob). Stew experienced a rapid onset of esophageal cancer, and fought his way through the last year with every intention of beating the odds. His strong will to live on and build a legacy is to be admired. He will be missed dearly by his family. His unique personality and distinguished career will not be forgotten. Special thank you to Dr. Louise Coulombe, who treated both Tance and Stew, with great kindness and professionalism. Interment for Tance and Stew will take place at Woodlawn Cemetery, Saskatoon.
