It is with heavy hearts that the family of William “Bill” Stewart, loving husband to Elizabeth “Betty” (Thibodeau) Stewart, announce his passing which occurred on Friday, June 21 at the Saint John Regional Hospital with his family by his side. Born on January 23, 1939, he was a son of the late William and Helena (Snodgrass) Stewart.

Bill’s family wish to extend their gratitude to neighbour Doug Gallant, who has helped them tremendously throughout the years and to the staff of the Palliative Care Unit at the Saint John Regional Hospital, your compassion and care will not be forgotten.
Bill will be lovingly remembered by his wife Betty, his children: Tim Mason, Gary Stewart, Bill Martin, Paige Thibodeau Goguen (Jean-Marc) and Kim Mason (Jason), step-son Christopher (Donna) Maillet, many grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, nephews and members of his extended family.
