I considered Stu a great friend back in high school at Lansing Gabriels. As years go by, friends become distant acquaintances and you’re personal families become your life. Regardless, memories linger and smiles come to your face. I ran into Stu a number of times throughout our lives and each time we greeted each other with a welcomed handshake and a huge hug. his parents place on N. Fairview street was a gathering and meeting place for our nights adventures many times over. I’m smiling right now thinking of some of our more daring and foolhardy undertakings. God Bless you Stu, you will be missed.

I met Stewart when I started working for his doctor. He was always nice to me. And we always jokes back and forth especially about a door he had handmade. He will be missed.
