Dennis Stewart

June 19, 1941 - October 27, 2017

Tribute

On Friday, October 27, 2017, Mr. Dennis William James Stewart of Oliver passed away suddenly at the South Okanagan General Hospital after a brief battle with cancer at the age of 76 years.

Dennis was an only child who was predeceased by his parents Wesley and Ivy Stewart; his in-laws Steve and Eunice Marrs; his loving wife Sharon Stewart on February 13, 2012, six months shy of their 50th wedding anniversary.

He was born in Deloraine, Manitoba and lived in Waskada, Manitoba. Dennis spent his school years in Calgary before returning to Waskada until he and Sharon moved to Oliver in 1968.

Dennis will be fondly remembered by his loving family including son Jim (Shelly) and grandchildren Susan, Stephanie, Jon, Zachary, Colin and Laura; daughter Cindy and grandson Phillip; son Kevin and grandsons Corey (Kendra), Wesley, Brady (AJ); great-grandsons Sean, Logan and Dominic. Also left to mourn his passing are his brothers and sisters-in-law; many nieces, nephews and his little dog Collette.

Dennis was a very talented carpenter and handyman who was up to any challenge thrown at him but he was truly at home under the hood of vehicles. He eventually built a garage at his home and opened his own shop. He spent many years happily fixing vehicles until he retired.

Dennis was very proud to be a veteran of the Canadian Army and member of the Royal Canadian Legion.

He loved travelling, camping and fishing with Sharon and if at all possible, there was a side trip to many different casinos to try out their luck along the way. Dennis also enjoyed dancing, music and had a wonderful voice.

He was also an avid Vancouver Canucks fan who never lost his faith that this was the year they would win the Stanley Cup. In 2015, Cindy took Dennis to his first NHL game. He was so happy to see “his boys” play even though they lost that game.

Dennis had a fantastic sense of humour and a smile that could light up a room. He was a kind and quiet gentleman who spent 2083 days waiting patiently to be with Sharon, the love of his life. They are finally together again.

Special thanks to Dr. Davidson, Dr. Paisley, Dr. Hamilton and Dr. Hill for their expertise. The staff at PRH and SOGH for all the care you provided to Dennis and the family.

To the staff at Sunnybank Centre, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you for your love, care and compassion that you have given our Dad, it shall never be forgotten.
