Predeceased by his father Major Charles Stuart, his mother Ruth Loudon, his sister Joan and twin sis- ter Nora. Bill had a long and varied life with many joys and accomplish- ments. He attended Upper Canada College and served as an officer in the Canadian Armoured Corps dur- ing WWII. In 1949 he graduated from the University of Toronto and served as President of the U of T Engineering Society Executive. He was a senior marketing executive with Proctor and Gamble, Dean of Business at Ryerson University and Past President of the Madawaska Club. After retirement he was an enthusiastic volunteer at CESO, where his assignments took him from Morocco to Siberia, usually with his wife Helen at his side. From earliest childhood, Bill loved spending sum- mers along the rocks and pines at Go Home Bay, Georgian Bay. Some of his happiest moments were spent puttering around the cottage or sail- ing on a blustery afternoon. He loved meeting people from all walks of life and his wit and charm enlivened many family and social gatherings. Bill was a fine example of the gener- ation of Canadians who grew up dur- ing the Depression, served their country, worked hard and raised a strong and appreciative family. He will be missed.
