BRIAN JOHN STEWART Retired TTC Official June 27, 1936 - February 2, 2017 Passed away peacefully on February 2, 2017, after a courageous battle with Parkinson's and Dementia. Brian was a sweet, kind, loving man and a brilliant businessman. Brian leaves behind his sweetheart and love of his life of 28 years, Patty. Will be missed by his loving brother Arthur, sister-in- law Edna Stewart and brother- in-law Ian Dunn. Loving father to his children, Stephen (Karen), Andrew and Lynne. Grandfather to Jordan and Lauren. Will be deeply missed by many nieces and nephews in the UK and US. Predeceased by his parents Ella and Charles, brother Patrick and sisters Deirdre and Mary. There are so many people that Brian and Patty would like to thank: Dr. Gelman, Dr. Masellis, Dr. Esufali, Dr. Anne Cottingham, Dr. Peter Riordan and all their staff for their care and compassion. Also CCAC, St. Elizabeth's, SRT Med Staff (special thanks to Alex) and our Parkinson's support groups where we met so many amazing people. Special thank you to the Wiley's and extended family and friends for all your love and support. Big thank you to all of the staff at Amica - Unionville. Especially the 2nd floor Personal Support Workers and nursing staff. The care and love you gave Brian over the past 2.5 years was incredible. You are true healthcare superheroes! Brian came to Canada, from Dublin, Ireland at the age of 19 with $100 in his pocket. He worked hard and was respected in the bus industry. First with Charterways in London, Ontario, then Gray Coach Lines, the Ontario Motor Coach Association and TTC in Toronto. Brian retired from TTC in 1996 to enjoy cottage life with Patty. Always positive even through his health struggles, his glass was always half full! He was an inspiration through some very difficult times. If desired, donations to Parkinson Canada or Markham Stouffville Hospital would be appreciated. The greatest gift you can give a loved one or friend during difficult times... is your time. Cremation has taken place. A celebration of life will be held at a later date. Online condolences may be placed at www.highlandfuneralhome.ca/scarborough Rest now my love. You've been through a lot. I will carry your heart with me every day and love you forever. - Patty
