Stewart “Stu” Cavanaugh of Lethbridge passed away peacefully on January 23rd, 2024, at the age of 89.
Stu grew up on a farm east of Calgary near the hamlet of Shepard. He loved the farm life but was unable at the time to take over the family farm. One of his early jobs in Calgary was working for John Deere which turned into a lifetime of collecting toy tactors and everything with the John Deere logo. Stu’s true passion was woodworking. There was always a project on the go in his garage, but Stu was a realist – he knew he couldn’t support the family through his woodworking. Now in his 30s, Stu earned his degree in Psychology at the University of Lethbridge. This landed him a 22-yearlong career with the Alberta government in social services wherein he moved the family back to Calgary. After retirement, Stu decided to move back to Lethbridge to be closer to family. The highlight of Stu’s day was going for breakfast as he cherished the visits he had with his servers. Stu was a kind and happy man who was adored by all he came in contact with.
Stu leaves behind his daughter Jane (Keith) Hitchcock; son Dan Cavanaugh; grandchildren Daryl (Amanda) Hitchcock, Scott (Brandy) Hitchcock, Stephanie (Aedan) Wilson, Ryan Noren, Rochelle Bates; great grandchildren Paisley, Hadley, Jack and Charley; dear friend Gladys Larson; brothers Buzz (Barb) Cavanaugh and Allan Cavanaugh.
Stu is predeceased by his daughter Deb Noren and great grandson Carter Hitchcock.
A Celebration of Stu’s Life will be announced at a later date. Flowers are gratefully declined
