   It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of James Blair Stuart on April 10, 2023, surrounded by family and friends at the Regional Hospital, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. He was 70 years of age.

   Blair was born on September 24, 1952, in Moose Jaw, SK to Harold and Jeanne Stuart.  In 1972, he moved to the Crowsnest Pass, AB. While he was there, he worked at the mine and joined the Lost Riders Motorcycle Club.

   Blair enjoyed watching his nephew, Troy Gaudry play hockey, going golfing, fishing, and watching sports on tv. When he was younger, he played hockey and baseball, which he was pretty good at. Blair moved back to Moose Jaw, SK in 1983, with his most recent residence being Regina Beach, SK. While he was in Moose Jaw SK, Blair joined the Army Navy Vets. During his time with them, he joined the darts league. He was a skilled player of darts and won the Provincials. Blair was a welder with United Association of Journeymen and Apprentices of the Plumbing and Pipefitting Industry Local 179 and retired from there August 1, 2013. In 2010 he made his first trip to Puerto Vallarta. He loved going there and made it his second home spending most of his last three years there. Blair will be fondly remembered and greatly missed by all who knew him. 

   Left to mourn his passing and to celebrate his life are his daughters, Marie (Rob) Meckelborg of Pincher Creek, AB, Nichole (Joe) Boissoneault of Pincher Creek, AB and Michelle (Doug Sokoloski) Stuart, of Coleman, AB; his son, Blake Stuart of Moose Jaw, SK; his sisters, Susan Gaudry of Coleman, AB and Donna (Bill) Van Buskirk of Coleman, AB and their families; his grandchildren, Rayanne, Veronica, Happy, Haley and Brooke; numerous nieces, nephews; as well as his extended family and many friends both in Canada and Mexico.
