Carl Grame Stewart


All those who knew and were often assisted by the kind and giving heart and gruff manner of Carl Grame Stewart will be saddened to hear of his passing in the Dawson Creek and District Hospital on July 1st, 2021, at the age of 80.

Carl was born in Perth, Ontario on August 24th, 1940, the second child of Fletcher and Lillian Stewart. He is survived by his wife, Marsha, his sons, Jock and RobRoy, daughter Sheena and grandchildren Ainslee, Oliver and Julia. He is also survived by siblings Madonna Bell and Colleen Kenny. 

Growing up in Eastern Ontario Carl was primarily concerned with hockey, photography, and the history of the area. Following a stint in the Royal Canadian Army he attended Kingston Ontario’s Queens University, (English) and supported his studies as a nursing assistant at Kingston Psychiatric Hospital and St. Mary’s on the Lake and then studied Journalism at Ryerson in Toronto. He was the bureau chief for the Welland Tribune in Fort Erie, Ontario.  

Having moved to Western Canada Carl worked at Parks and Recreation for the Alberta Provincial Government for a few years and studied Social Psychology at the University of Alberta. 

It was during this time that Carl joined the Ancient Order of Free and Accepted Masons at Mystic Tie Lodge No. 188 in Edmonton and later affiliated with Lodges in Dawson Creek and Fort St. John and the Knights Templar in Prince George. 

In 1979 Carl established the local newspaper in Grimshaw, AB and then moved to the newspaper in Mackenzie, BC. In 1992 Carl became the Managing Editor of the Peace River Block Daily News. 

After leaving the newspaper business Carl used his nursing experience to assist in becoming a Level Three First Aid Attendant and worked on several industrial sites throughout Northern BC.
