Using his bilingual skills, Stu worked as an interpreter and translator until his untimely passing.

Stu loved the outdoors, fishing and especially the beach, where he spent many years surfing. He had a strong passion for reading and learning, spending most of his free time studying and learning new things. He was a brilliant writer. Stu, and his infectious smile, will be deeply missed.

A private family service is planned.
