FREDERICK WILLIAM STEWART July 22, 1923 - June 7, 2018 Fred died peacefully on Thursday, June 7, 2018 at Deer Lodge Centre in Winnipeg. Fred was predeceased by his parents, his brother Douglas, his first wife Marjory, and later by his second wife Margaret. He is survived by his son Malcolm, his wife Catherine, their two children and three grandchildren, along with Margaret's (nee Bouttell) four children, Marilyn, Barbara, Pam and Bruce and their families. Born Frederick William to Donald and Dorris (Dolly) in Winnipeg, he was the eldest son of two boys. In life, Fred loved music and to sing first as a choir boy at St. Matthew's, then as a man at St. Patrick's and St. Peter's Anglican churches. He enjoyed the routine of choir practices and even more participating in the St. Peter's Pub night productions. Fred matriculated from Daniel McIntyre and after serving in the Air Force during the Second World War, he received a Commerce degree from the University of Manitoba. Articling in Toronto, he met and married his first wife Marjory. On her death and after more than 50 years of marriage, he married again to Margaret (nee Bouttell) who brought her strength, joy, love and care to him. Fred spent his career with the Manitoba Provincial Government, retiring as an Assistant Deputy Minister in the late 1970s. Proud of his Scottish heritage, Fred was shaped by his Anglican faith. He was honest, loving, loyal, and a good father and husband. He loved to walk and at mid-life, joined the Reh-Fit Centre and began to run. He was a collector of stamps and Meerschaum pipes. He volunteered for Habitat, for his condominium board and with Marjory at the Art Gallery. He served as an Airman during the Second World War, as a member of the Wartime Pilots And Observers Association, as a Free Mason and as a Lay Reader at St. Peter's where, from time to time, he took the ministry to small rural communities in southern Manitoba. Later in life, as dementia took him to another space, he was able to stay in his home through the strength of his second wife Margaret and later after her death, he joined the Deer Lodge Centre, Tower 6, family who showed him compassion, patience and care. Fred was always fortunate to have had the support of family, friends, and of those who provided mental, physical and spiritual care. It is in that spirit, and if you choose, please feel free to donate to a charity of your choice or volunteer some time in his memory. A Celebration of Life and reception will be held 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, July 7, at St. Peter's Anglican Church, 755 Elm Street in Winnipeg. Bardal Funeral Home 204-774-7474 Condolences:
