Stuart Myles Cerny

Stuart Myles Cerny passed away at the Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster on June 13th, 2013 at 12:45am at the age of 61. He was born November 26, 1951 in Natal, BC to Myrtle and Anthony Cerny and is survived by his loving wife Elizabeth Ann Cerny of 40 years; married in Sparwood, BC on July 15th, 1972.

Stuart is lovingly remembered by his two sons Craig (Tara) Cerny of Elkford BC, Keith (Fiona) Cerny of Coquitlam BC; daughter Crystal (Karl) Cerny-Steinicke of Nainamo BC; older brother Larry (Pat Allardyce) Cerny of Fernie BC; twin sister Sheryl (Sam) Stephenson of Sparwood BC; youngest sister Pamela (Ted) Rozborski of Victoria BC; grandchildren Kaden, Aviya, Amelia and Owen Cerny; as well as many loving cousins, nieces, nephews, extended family and close friends with which he has left a loving and lasting impression.

Stuart was an avid hunter and fisherman and loved exploring the surrounding mountains and rivers of the Elk Valley with his family and friends. He also had a deep appreciation for music playing his guitar daily for the enjoyment himself and of those around him. At age 52 Stuart and Beth moved to New Westminster where frequently they would explore the surrounding city walking for hours and he would share photos of his unique finds such as buildings, barges and bridges with those he loved. Even though Stuart travelled away his heart has always stayed in the Elk Valley.

Although he is no longer with us Stuart has passed on a special gift of loving the outdoors to his children and grandchildren. He touched the lives of everyone he met with his unique humour and caring heart as if he had known them for years, even though he may have just met them. His adoration for his children and grandchildren was both beautiful and from his loving heart. Stuart had a special and amazing gift of love and caring that will be missed and remembered always.

A gathering of family and friends in celebration of Stuart’s life will be held from 12 noon to 3pm Sunday June 23rd at the Seniors Centre located at 101 4th Avenue, Sparwood BC.
