Stewart retired from CMHC 15 years ago and he became an avid gardener. He took pride in his beautiful gardens and landscape at the home he shared with his wife in Matawatchan. Stewart was often found in the family sugar bush making his famous maple syrup, he so generously shared with friends and family. Stewart loved to dote on his wife Helene and they shared a love for travelling. Stewart loved spending quality time with his grandchildren and had a special relationship with each one of them.
He was truly a family man and you would often hear his family say “Stewie walked on water”!
