Stuart Harry “Crusher”
January 26, 1955 to January 30, 2014
With great sadness we announce the unexpected passing of Crusher in Kelowna, BC at the age of 59 with his daughter by his side.
Crusher is survived by his daughter Victoria Mamie and son Jordan Francis Stuart. He is also survived by Karen, the mother of his children, and Sophie, his canine companion. He will be missed by his brother Louis and family, sisters Pat and Carol and their families and many other family and friends. Crusher was predeceased by his parents Floyd and Mamie (Krall) Miles.
Crusher was raised in Natal, receiving his formal education in Natal and Sparwood. Shortly after being hired by Byron Creek in June 1975, he completed his heavy duty mechanic apprenticeship. He continued to work for Coal Mountain until his death.
In his leisure time he enjoyed fly fishing, playing softball and walking with his dogs. He had very fond memories of his childhood and enjoyed sharing these memories with his children. He was looking forward to the imminent arrival of his first grandchild.
A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, February 8, 2014 at 2:00 PM at Cherished Memories Funeral Services Ltd.
