Stewart JamesSTEWART, James Gordon Stewart - Born April 9, 1926. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our father on December 25, 2018.

Jim died peacefully following a cardiac event on December 20th.

Born and raised in Hamilton, he moved to Whitby to raise his family. Jim is survived by his wife Margaret (Valleau) and his sons Gordon (Jane) and Jim (Peggy), 7 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren.

Jim shared his passion for sailing with his sons and their families. Having been one of the founding members of The Whitby Yacht Club, he enjoyed many years of racing and cruising. After retiring his active membership, he was elected to be an Honorary Life Member of The Whitby Yacht Club. 

At Jim’s request, there will be no funeral but a Celebration of Life in the New Year.

Many thanks to the incredible staff in emergency, acute care and observation and 9G at Lakeridge Health Oshawa, for their compassionate care of Jim and his family during this sad time.
