STEWART, Norman Scott September 6, 1937 to June 28, 2020 It is with great sadness that we announce the unexpected passing of Norman Scott Stewart on June 28, 2020 from complications arising from Parkinson’s Disease. Born in Charlottetown and predeceased by his parents Milton and Vera Stewart, brother Dr. William Ross Stewart, and sister Betty Hartinger. Beloved husband of Jacqueline for 58 years, and dearest father of Ellen (Gord), Carolyn (Andy), Grant (Lucy), and Philip (Alexandra). Loving Grampy Norm to Anthony (Stefanie), Philip (Tiffany), Carson and Thomas, and Great Grandfather to Cataleya and Selina. Norman was also the beloved brother of Helen MacRae, and brother-in-law of Olive Stewart, both of Charlottetown, and much loved Uncle to many loving nieces and nephews. Norman started his teaching career at Prince of Wales College in 1959, and upon moving to Toronto he continued his long career as an English teacher at York Mills Collegiate. Next to his love of family, Norman’s greatest love was of music. He was greatly influenced by his sister Helen, one of Canada’s finest pianists and organists, and they shared an incredible bond and love of music. He was a wonderful musician with an extraordinary knowledge of country music, the American Song Book and standard repertoire. He was a member of many bands, both in Charlottetown and in Toronto, and for many years was the organist at St. Bartholomew Catholic Church. While he was a wonderful musician and teacher, more than that he was an incredible husband to our mother, a best friend to us, a loving grandfather and great grandfather, and an encyclopedia of music, history, literature, poetry, and the English language. He was the kindest and most humble person, and brought joy to all who knew him. We are honoured and privileged to have had him as our father. He will be sorely missed and mourned by his family and all who knew him. We would like to especially thank Norman’s nephew and niece, Dr. Chris Stewart and Dr. Susan Stewart, for all of their guidance, love and support during this difficult time. In lieu of flowers, please make donations in Norman’s memory to Parkinson Canada, or a charity of your choice. “To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die”
