DUNBRACK, Stewart St. Clair – 85, of New Minas. It is with broken hearts we announce the sudden passing of our father Stewart St. Clair Dunbrack September, 1935 – February, 2021. Born in Dartmouth he was the son of the late Carl and Louise (Sidebottom) Dunbrack. Dad worked as a hydrographer at B. I. O. for 35 years and was happily retired for 36 years. Stewart was an avid sports enthusiast, he enjoyed all sports but his favourite were golf (two holes in one!) and hockey “GO LEAFS GO!”. Dad was a kind and patient man and could hold a conversation with anyone. Dad had a big laugh and even bigger sense of humour. He will be missed by many including his Sunday night girls at Boston Pizza and the many Newfoundland relatives. Dad loved animals and had a great memories of Casper his cat, Robin his rescue raccoon and Idy his duck. He is survived by his son; Steven (Kelly) and daughter; Patricia, step-daughters; Wendy, Lisa, Marla and beloved grandchildren; Matthew, Devin, Travis and Tyler. Dad was predeceased by his first son; David Roy, brothers Neil, Donny, Roy and Ritchie, nieces; Barbara and Diane. Donations may be sent to a charity of your choice.

Hello, we are sorry to hear of the passing of Stu. Our last memory of Stu was at Ken-wo, he was having a meal. There was a constant stream of people stopping to chat and say hello. He was always asking of our family and what they were doing. He was an all around nice man. Take Care. Bev and David Harris

I'm saddened to hear of Stu's passing. He was one of the few hydrographers I could talk/argue sports with....would see him at the Acadia games in later years. You mentioned his hearty laugh....yes...fond story telling...lies...memories there. We'd get caught up onthe 'valley news' at the retirees lunches and BIO Christmas parties.

He was the best boss I ever had, Newly married, and a great teacher. I am saddened to hear he has passed on to the next world . His kind, warm gentle good nature was much appreciated in this world. thank you Stewart.

I knew Stu through his membership at KenWo. One of those KenWo "characters" who always was willing to have a chat especially when it related to our beloved Maple Leafs. A great guy who will be missed by our membership. My sincerest condolences to his family.

My condolences to all of Stewart's family. I first met him when my Mom and Dad moved next door to him and Kit on Lynn Drive many years ago (1967) and found out he was a cousin of Dad's. We saw them often when we visited my parents and also when there was a party going on. My family moved to the Valley in 1974 so visits were less frequent, but we still saw him once in awhile. Years after, I did run into Stu in New Minas after he moved there. My husband passed away last May, so maybe they will get together with Mom and Dad for some laughs, I really enjoyed his sense of humour!
