Stewart Samuel Thorniley
In the evening of April 16, 2018 we said good bye to our loving Stewart. He spent his last hours surrounded by family. Stewart leaves behind Joan, his wife of 52 years, daughter Dione (Drew) and son Scott. He also leaves his amazing grandchildren Michael (Amanda), Brandon (Dani), Zachary and Cassia (Eric); great-grandchildren Ryley and Kohen.
Stewart was born in Cheshire, England, where he loved visiting his aunties sweet shop. His family travelled to Canada when he was 12; he immediately left behind his short pants and English accent, with the exception of “Canad-er”.
Later in life his love for the water kept the family busy making many wonderful memories on the Shuswap and in the Winter there was curling. Many great friends were made enjoying both of these things.
The family would like to thank ALL the beautiful staff at Gemstone who made our last few days with Stewart warm and comfy. As usual, Stew stole their hearts and they mourn the loss as we do.
A celebration of life will be held on Monday, April 23rd at 1pm at the Stagehouse, 422 Tranquille Rd.
In lieu of flowers please make a donation to the Alzheimer’s Society of BC. Donation envelopes will be available at the celebration or you can visit the website at http://alzheimer.ca/en/bc. Condolences may be sent to the family via DrakeCremation.comPrint This Obituary & Condolences
