He is survived by his daughter Tara Dowd, his life partner Ann Marie Dowd and eight sisters: Laura Wallingford, Tami McWilliams, Gail McWilliams, Mikie Duncan, Lynn Snow, Julie Hurst, Becky Squire and Jamie Hanna.
Throughout his life Stu worked, fished, hunted and built things, but, his joy and purpose in life was to help people with addictions.
Almost every day for 35 years he went to “Our Club” to help recovering addicts get the help they needed to get or remain sober.
He was a simple man who gave his heart and soul to those who needed a new path.
Memorial to be held at “Our Club” on September 14, 2013 1pm to 3pm at 1102 W. 2nd.
