Dr. Stewart died on August 22, 2010 at the age of 55. He was born in Kamloops, BC, and died in his home town. He was predeceased by his father Frank Stewart and is survived by his wife Nancy (nee Davies), daughters Allison and Lindsay, his mother Doreen Stewart, sister Fran (George) Campbell, and brothers George (Lori) and Keith (Jennifer). His sisters-in-law Lori Davies and Carolyn Gavriel and mother-in-law Faye Davies also grieve his loss as does one of his favourite companions, his dog Lindo. Nieces and nephews Andrew and Giorsa Campbell, Frank, George and Wilson Stewart and Alexei Gavriel will also greatly miss “Uncle David”, as will his surviving aunts and uncles.
Dr. Stewart attended UBC for his undergraduate and medical degrees, returning home to Kamloops with his wife Nancy to practice urology in 1988.
He was a dedicated professional who gave his all for the patients in his care. Long hours left little time for leisure, but he savored every minute of his free time, developing exceptional skills as a wildlife photographer. Cooking was another passion and many benefited from his culinary expertise. Dr. Stewart was passionate about many topics, with a special interest in the history of Kamloops, and displayed an astonishing memory for detail. He cared deeply for his family and some of his favourite memories included a trip to Scotland with his mother Doreen and niece Giorsa in 2006, followed by a subsequent trip last year to Scotland with his wife and daughters. David loved to share his delights and interests with others, frequently phoning friends and family members with a joke or humorous anecdote. Doctors and nurses in the O.R. will also remember him for his sense of humour and his professional intensity.
