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.
