It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our courageous and kind-hearted, coffee-loving husband, Dad, and Grampy.
Stuart spent most of his youth in Wentworth, NS, riding his motorcycle and sometimes getting into trouble. He also loved camping, gardening, and enjoying the outdoors. He worked at Intertape Polymer for 38 years before his retirement.
Stuart could usually be found with a mug of Tim Horton’s coffee in the morning, afternoon, or evening while socializing and people watching. He loved four-wheeling with his wife, Blesilda, and going for long drives with no particular destination - but with lots of coffee! In the springtime, Stuart could be found in his sugar-shack boiling maple syrup, the memories taking him back to his childhood.
He adored and loved all his grandchildren very much, always enjoying their sleepovers and visits where all shared a common interest in four-wheeling and trucks.
Stuart loved listening to live music and dancing, trying to teach us all to two-step, and if you were lucky enough to meet Stuart, you might have been on the receiving end of his humorous or smart remarks; he really enjoyed a bit of good-natured teasing.
Stuart was also very loved by his extended Filipino family, and was known as Ninong, Kuya, and Tito Payat.
We would like to extend our heartfelt appreciation to the home palliative team, the VON, and E2 and the Palliative care staff at Colchester East Hants Health Centre.
Stuart is survived by his loving wife of eleven years, Besilda Weatherbee; his daughters, Cathy (Wade) Parker, Bible Hill; Tammy Hughes (Brandon Gill), Salmon River; Crystal (Josh) Stokdijk, Middle Stewiacke; step-daughter, Shawna (Scott) Morrel and family; grandchildren, Logan, Kyle, Summer, Wyatt, Emett, Willa-Marie, Rhett, Chad, Lindsay and Mason; sister, Ann Letourneau, Windsor, Ontario; brother Charles (Susan) Weatherbee, Amherst as well as many nieces and nephews.
Stuart was predeceased by his parents Sheldon and Muriel Weatherbee and his first wife Shawna.
Donations in Stuart's memory may be made to the Colchester East Hants Hospice Society.
