(November 8, 1947-February 11, 2008)
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Ian STEWARD/STEWART/STUART at the age of 60. Ian passed away peacefully at Penticton Regional Hospital in Penticton, British Columbia with his family at his side, after a brief battle with Leukemia. Ian is survived by his loving wife, Doctor Jacqueline STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, his two sons Trevor STEWARD/STEWART/STUART (daughter-in-law Kelly FREEMAN) of Toronto, Ontario, and Andrew STEWARD/STEWART/STUART of Penticton, and brother Geoffrey MURRAY of Etobicoke, Ontario, and sister-in-law Arlene WOITKIW of Thunder Bay, Ontario. Ian was predeceased by his Mother, Catherine STEWARD/STEWART/STUART and Father Harold R. STEWARD/STEWART/STUART. Ian was born in Fort William (Thunder Bay), Ontario and attended Selkirk Collegiate and Lakehead University. Ian and Jackie married in Thunder Bay then went to Exeter, England to attend Exeter University for post graduate studies. Ian and Jackie moved to Toronto where Jackie attended medical school and lived in Toronto for 26 years and was a long time resident of Fallingbrook Drive in the beaches. The family moved to Penticton, British Columbia in 2004 and Ian loved the spectacular Okanagan Valley. Ian taught courses at Lakehead University before the family moved to Toronto where his wife attended Medical School. He worked several years at Miracle Food Mart while Jackie studied medicine. He also worked for the Federal Government in the Passport Office in Scarborough, Ontario. Subsequently, Ian found what became his passion in life - the Stock Market. He worked independently for a number of years trading stocks. This was the second most important aspect of Ian's life after his family. Ian was very passionate about politics. He ran in a Federal Election for member of Parliament in Thunder Bay at the age of 25. Although he was not successful, he avidly followed everything in politics all of his life. Ian was also very active. He started jogging in his 20's, later got his wife hooked on running and in the last year loved running with his labradoodle, Jack on the KVR trail in Penticton. Ian's favourite sport was baseball and was an avid fan of the Toronto Blue Jays. Not too many games were missed and his favourite thing to do was go to the games at the Skydome in Toronto. Ian also loved his pets and was very attached to his dog Jack, Tommy the parrot and the late Pigwidgeon the cockatiel. Ian will be profoundly missed by his wife of 36 years, Jackie, sons Trevor (Kelly) and Andrew. Prayers and visitation will be held at Parkview Funeral Home, 1258 Main Street, Penticton, British Columbia on Thursday February 14, 2008 at 7: 00 p.m. Funeral services for Ian STEWARD/STEWART/STUART will be held on Friday February 15, 2008 at 11: 00 a.m. from the Chapel of Parkview Funeral Home with Reverend Catherine Loynd officiating. Internment will follow in Lakeview Cemetery, Penticton.
