In memory of
Sumner Grant Stewart-Magee
Sumner Grant Stewart-Magee, witty, foodie, lover of the ladies, entrepreneur extraordinaire, master of the moment, accomplished traveler, and 20-year Cancer survivor, died peacefully, Sunday, November 8, 2020. He will be greatly missed. He loved meeting people and when you met, you were instantly his friend. Sumner loved food, and his palate reflected his wide-ranging experiences: from fried Spam to anything Chinese (which he could eat every day), all seafood especially the long-neck Geoduck clams so plentiful on Bainbridge Island, Wa., anything with onions, especially Southern yellow squash, and all Persian rice dishes such as Crunchy Rice (TahDig) which his mother could make like a pro. He loved women- was married and divorced 4 times. He could show up to any event in a Tuxedo or Overalls, but either way, you were happy he came. As a teen, Sumner had the looks of Hollywood's Sal Mineo (especially during his years in Iran); in his later years, he had the Hemingway "Old Man and the Sea" look making him a perfect Santa at Christmas. Sumner's gregarious "give you the shirt off his back" (Magee side) often collided with his "you know that shirt cost $100" (Stewart side), but the result was a person everyone wanted at the party. His love for travel stemmed from his teen years in Iran as the family was able to visit numerous areas in Europe, the Middle East and North Africa. He was also exposed to the "finer things" there having dined with his parents in the homes and palaces of the highest level dignitaries in Iran. Sumner is preceded in death by his Father, Sumner Svedin Stewart-Magee, his mother, Ruth E. Stewart-Magee, and his brother Fred C. Stewart-Magee. He is survived by his children: Deborah Foreaker (John), Beth McMillan (Alan), Merry Ann Whisenhunt (Steve) and Brian David Stewart-Magee; 11 grandchildren, and 8 great grandchildren.
