The Cape Breton Post, November 20, 2007
Stewart Blackmore 88, North Sydney

It is with deep sorrow that we announce the peaceful passing of a dear husband, brother and friend, Stewart Blackmore, on Sunday, Nov. 18, 2007, with his loving wife Elizabeth at his side. Stewart was born in Valley Field, Nfld., and moved to North Sydney, where he was employed as an engineer with Marine Atlantic, retiring after 43 years of service. He was a veteran of the Second World War serving with the Merchant Marines. He is survived by his wife, Elizabeth, who he referred to as "his gift from heaven;" his brother, Harry Cooze, sister, Elizabeth Pittman, both of Newfoundland; and his faithful friend, Cassie. Let Stewart be remembered for his love of the highlands where he and Lizzie spent their time fishing and hunting. Let him also be remembered for his kind deeds, his many friendships and his profound commitment to his marriage. At Stewart's request, cremation has taken place and there will be no visitation or memorial service. A graveside service will be held at Lakeside Cemetery, North Sydney, at a later date. Memorial donations may be made to Palliative Care Society of Cape Breton, or the VON. Online condolences may be sent to info@wjdooley.com
