CLEAR LAKE —
David Sherman Stuart, age 60, of Clear Lake, Texas, went home to be with his Lord on May 5, 2013, after a hard-fought battle with cancer. To those who knew him…he had a quiet presence, yet exuded inner strength and was known for his dry wit, generosity and devotion to family.
He graduated from Nederland High School and Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas with an MBA in Business Administration. For the past 20 years, he was a valued business consultant with Colonial Life Insurance.
David had a love for all sports, especially golf and baseball. He also officiated basketball, enjoyed coaching and supporting his children’s endeavors in baseball and golf. David was an avid reader and an extraordinary trivia buff. Dear to his heart was his “other family,” The Houston Force.
He was preceded in death by his father, W.C. Stuart. David leaves loving memories to the following survivors: former wife Diane Stuart; daughter Kathryn and son William Stuart; mother Betty Stuart of Nederland; sisters Lisa Smith and husband Randy, Sheila Bass and husband Jim, of Nederland; and numerous former sister-in-laws and brother-in-law, nieces and nephews.
A visitation will be held Thursday, May 9, 2013, 5-8 pm, at Crowder Funeral Home, Webster, Texas. Services to be held Friday, 10am, at Clear Lake United Methodist Church, with burial to follow at Forest Lawn Cemetery, Beaumont, Texas, at 3:30pm.
