Stuart was such a fine, fine man in many respects. I knew him when I was a young boy, and Stuart always had a smile and helping hand at anytime. He will be missed by the many who were a friend and who were fortunate to meet him in his life here on God’s green Earth. Stuart, may you rest in peace good and faithful servant. Condolences to his family members during your loss. RIP.
