I didn’t know Stuart in my time in Rockwell College, but he was an extremely popular guy and one of the dorm peers of my brother. It was an absolutely tragic accident when Stuart was paralyzed neck down from a collapsed scrum and has now passed away. The guy was only my age and I hope to raise money in my race in August in his memory.
