Dale Wayne Stewart
Feb.5, 1939 - Jul.5 2021
It’s with great sadness that we share the peaceful passing of our Dad, Grandpa, and Great Grandpa “Pop”.
He leaves to mourn son, Richard and Josie Stewart of Morden (Sheralee and Darrell Forsyth (and their children, Jayden, Ty) and Colton Stewart and Lisa Deng); daughters; Cathy and Mark Sandercock of Morden (Dylan Croll, Meghan), and Colleen and Ken Stelmach of Airdrie, AB (Cole). He will also be missed by his siblings, brother Duncan (Colin) and Joyce, sister Glenda Bayliss, and brothers Doug (Nola) and Graham (Marg), sister in-law Gloria and Dale’s dear friend Catherine Buyarski of Morden. Dale was predeceased by his parents, John and Joyce Stewart, loving wife Marilyn Stewart, brothers Brian (Kenneth) and Donald (Joe), brother in-law James (Jim), and nephew Kenny.
We will fondly remember him for his amazing sense of humor, his willingness to listen when you just needed an ear and his surefire way of always telling you what you needed to hear, whether you knew it or not. He always had a story to share, which you may have heard before, but yet he seemed to make more entertaining the second time. Anyone who knew him knew of his passion for farming, his quest for a perfectly cooked roast beef, his delight in finding an overly-aged cheese, his respect for the military and his soft heart that would always help a friend in need. Dad always loved to learn something new and had a child-like wonder while visiting any museum, of any kind, anywhere. It brings us great comfort in knowing he enjoyed his last day out “crop inspecting” around the community he loved and grew up in.
In Dad’s memory we would love for you to do a simple, random act of kindness for a senior citizen in your community or the next time you’re in line at Tim’s, buy a coffee for the person behind you. Dad always loved that. Flowers for the family can be sent to Wiebe Funeral Chapel, Morden.
