KELVIN STEWART (published on October 01, 2011)



KELVIN STEWART P. ENG, MBA November 4, 1937 - September 25, 2011 Suddenly on Sunday, September 25, 2011, Gordon Kelvin Stewart passed away with his family at his side in the St. Boniface Hospital at the age of 73 years. He is survived by his wife of 51 years Beverley; two sons Keith Stewart and his wife Julie and Kent Stewart and his wife Linda; two grandchildren Gordon and Kathleen. He was predeceased by his parents Alex and Rhoda Stewart. Kelvin's early years were spent in Winnipeg, Montreal and Calgary. He graduated with a degree in civil engineering from the University of British Columbia followed by an MBA from University of Western Ontario. His entire career of 35 years was spent working for the City of Winnipeg, retiring as Director of Operations. Kelvin was a devoted family man to his wife, boys and grand children always ready to lend a hand coaching whatever activities his boys were involved in or cheering for his grandson Gordon on his football team or Kathleen on her baseball team. Kelvin enjoyed all sports and was a long time season's ticket holder for the Blue Bombers - cheering them on in good years and bad. For over 40 years Friday nights were spent curling in the Civic Curling League at the Heather. Kelvin spent many years as a scout leader and was instrumental in growing the Klondike Derby. He also attended the symphony and theater. After retiring he was involved in teaching power squadron courses and playing bridge with his old cronies - always at 1:22 p.m. Summers involved as much time as possible with Family and friends at the lake on the south shore of Clytie Bay.... there is no place on earth I would rather be was often heard and winters involved extensive travel. Kelvin had a great love of animals, nature and spent many hours paddling his canoe. The greatest pleasure in later years was spending time and sharing experiences with his two grandchildren. Although in the last few years his health presented many challenges he always maintained a positive attitude and a great sense of humor. The day before his death he was checking his list and packing for his 50th MBA reunion at Niagara Falls. Cremation has taken place and a private memorial service was held. If friends so desire, memorial contributions may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Manitoba, The Heart and Stroke Building, 6 Donald Street, Suite 200, Winnipeg, Manitoba, R3L 0K6 or a charity of their choice. The family would like to express their sincere appreciation to the staff of the St. Boniface Hospital Emergency Department for their care and compassion.
