Donald Alexander Stewart January 2, 1929 - January 6, 2017 It is with sadness and love that we would like to acknowledge the peaceful passing of Don Stewart. We grieve for his loss but at the same time we celebrate the full and wonderful life that he lived. Born and raised in Victoria, BC, Don's work career was varied. He was a constable with the BC Provincial Police, an insurance investigator, and then established his own business in the 1960's. Inspired by his wife Helen he developed an ardent interest in the jewellery business, obtained his gemology degree and opened his own jewellery store in the 1980's. As a boy, Don started hunting with his Grandfather on Vancouver Island which cultivated his passion for hunting and conservation which continued throughout his life. His passion for hunting and study of animals took him worldwide and he was at home in a blind or on the side of a mountain as he was in his office. He was also an avid fisherman and fished most waters on the coast of BC, but in his later years had a penchant for the beauty and wildlife of Langara Island. His other main interests included history, travel, and skiing. Don also enjoyed the game of bridge and the many friendships that came with it. Don is survived by his wife Helen, sons Gordon, Alan, Callum, Andrew and families, fourteen grandchildren and four great grandchildren. Don will be lovingly missed by his friends and family.
