Stewart John Alexander Steiss

January 1, 1942 — December 26, 2021

Passed away peacefully on December 26th at Listowel Memorial Hospital in his 80th year.

Beloved husband of Madelene for 56 years.

Proud dad to Steve Steiss and Robert ‘Bob’ Steiss (Ang Sills).

Grandpa to Ashlyn and Erica Steiss.

Brother to Eileen Mann and Jean Stiles, brother-in-law to Mervyn (Sherry) Quipp, Bill (Donna) Quipp and Sharon Wolff.

Missed by many extended family members.

Predeceased by his parents Alex & Ruby Steiss, sister Winnifred Mann and brothers-in-law Charlie Mann, Harry Mann and Gordon Stiles.

Stewart was a well-loved community member; serving with the Grey firefighters, driving a school bus for over 40 years and being the well known Eggman who delivered eggs to the surrounding area. He loved sports either watching the Toronto Maple Leafs or the Toronto Blue Jays or playing ball or trying his hand at curling. He enjoyed fishing and spent many vacations at the cottage in French river visiting relatives and trying to catch ‘the big one’. Stewart adored his grand kids and was always ready for a hug when they would climb up onto his lap. He was an insightful dad, spending time to teach his boys to be kind and to treat everyone with respect. He was a doting husband and true gentleman who kept the love of his life laughing and enjoying every minute of their time spent together. Stewart’s smile and social personality will be missed.
