STEWART – James Milton, UE

September 19, 1932 – April 10, 2011

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Jim Stewart, at the age of 78 years. Along with his loving wife Lorna, Jim is survived by son Jeff (Rita); and daughters, Sheila (Toni Gendron), Rebecca (Bill Gray) and Lorraine (Mike Leslie); as well as grandchildren, Tyler and Jordan, Alexia and Rémi, and Jack, Trevor and Amy.

Jim grew up a poor farm boy from Saskatchewan. He graduated in 1955 from the University of Alberta with a Petroleum Engineering degree. Over a forty year career he worked at Shell, Dome Petroleum, and PanCanadian. He was a great mentor to young engineers, generous with both his knowledge and time. Jim was a gifted bass singer who sang for many years in Barbershop chorus, as well as the St Andrew’s Anglican Church choir. Jim was actively involved in Calgary Little League Baseball, spending many summers as an umpire. He was a genealogy buff, and a proud member of the United Empire Loyalists. As evidence of their generous nature, in 1989 Jim and Lorna set up the U of C Stewart Family Bursaries, which annually assist two engineering students. Jim was always great fun to be around, and his trademark chuckle will be dearly missed. Jim always put his family first, and his legacy of love and wisdom will carry on through his children and grandchildren.

Although Jim suffered from Parkinson’s disease for the last twelve years of his life, he always maintained his sense of humour and dignity. He will be deeply missed by his wife and children, and by his grandchildren, whom he enjoyed immensely.

Funeral Services will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S, Chapel of the Bells (2720 Centre Street North) on Tuesday, April 19, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. If friends so desire, memorial tributes in Jim’s honour may be made directly to the Parkinson’s Society of Southern Alberta, #102, 5636 Burbank Crescent S.E., Calgary, AB T2H 1Z6 Telephone: (403) 243-9901, Forward condolences through

    Dear Lorna & Family:
    What can we say? You and Jim have been a part of our lives for such a long time. We consider ourselves fortunate to have been a small part of yours. Church projects, singing, parties at your beautiful home. Comforting when we were ill AND while you were both battling your own miseries.
    You and Jim were born leaders and St. Andrews were beneficiares of those talents. Rest in peace Jim, Peace at last. God Bless you all.
    Gord & Enid McGuffin
