Nov. 26, 1940 – June 3, 2022
It is with tremendous sadness that our family announces the sudden passing of our beloved husband/dad/grampie, Stuart (Stu) George Maitland Mowry, on June 3, 2022.
Stuart was born in Saint John, NB to Freeman and Helen (née Chetley) Mowry (deceased).
He was the beloved husband and soul mate of Donna (née Haley) Mowry for close to 56 years. Loving father to Daren (Mary) Mowry and Tanya Mowry (James) Stiver and Grampie to Anna, Ari, Brock and Nolan.
He is also survived by his brothers-in-law Floyd (Lorna), Larry (Teri), Steve (Anita), Eric (Christine) and Peter (Karla) Haley; and sister-in-law Judy Haley. He will be missed by many nieces and nephews; friends Ken and Sandra Carroll, Brenda Haley, Sheila Elliott and Pat Capeling.
He was predeceased by his parents; his brother Graham Mowry; his in-laws Ralph and Alba Haley; and brother-in-law Albert Haley.
Stu was well-known throughout the community either from his teaching career at Kincardine District Secondary School (26 years), council work with the Town of Kincardine (20 years) or from his membership in PROBUS and the Kincardine United Church. Stu also taught high school in Milltown and St. Stephen, NB and Temiscaming, QC where he was principal for one year.
A lover of history and adventure, Stu had travelled the world. He had kissed the Blarney stone, seen Ayers Rock, snorkeled with Manta Rays in Hawaii, climbed a volcano, walked the Great Wall of China as well as travelled extensively across Canada and the U.S. He left this world fulfilled and with no regrets.
Known for his cranky hard outer shell and dry wit, friends and family know the true tender heart in his core. His strong presence in our family and community will be greatly missed.
A celebration of life was held to honour him on Saturday, June 11, 2022, from 2- 4 p.m. at the Kincardine Legion with remembrances shared at 3 p.m.
Donations in his honour may be made to: The Canadian Cancer Society, Kincardine and Community Health Care Foundation, Kincardine United Church or a charity of your choice.
