In Memory of Frank Stuart Sr.

29331116_15245962170_r.jpegOn the morning of April 19th, 2018, Frank Stuart Sr., beloved son of Beverly Stuart, cherished husband of Sheree Kerner, adored father of 6 children, admired friend and mentor to many, and esteemed member of the New Orleans and Jefferson Parish community passed away after battling complications of Acute Myeloid Leukemia at the age of 65.

Frank cherished Holy Cross School, not only during his time at the school, but also throughout his adult life. Playing in the band gave him many fond memories and a passion for music that he loved to share anytime he got the chance. As part of his final wishes, Frank's hope was that everyone would continue to support the school and band that brought so much joy to his life and the lives of so many others.

It is without a doubt that everyone who knew him mourns the bright and beautiful life that has been taken from us too soon. However, we ask that in lieu of any flowers or cards you might send, please consider making a donation to the Holy Cross School's Band Program to honor the memory of Frank Stuart Sr. We have set up this GoFundMe page to make the process easier for those who wish to do so. Please know that 100% of all donations will go to the Holy Cross High School band.

If you wish to make a donation on your own, please make checks made payable to "Holy Cross School", and be sure to write "Band Program" in the memo line.
We ask that checks be sent to:
The Stuart Family
12 Azalea Ct.
Metairie, LA 70005

The $25,000 goal has been chosen to establish a lifetime endowment for the Holy Cross School's Band Program in Frank's name. Once the donation period has ended, we will update everyone on the final tally for donations here.

For all of those who can and choose to make a donation to honor our father, husband, son, and friend, Frank Stuart Sr., and to all of the friends and family who have already reached out to lend a hand, a shoulder, or to offer a piece of comfort, words cannot express the gratitude we feel for what you have given us, but thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
