In Memory of Willmore Stuart Sr.

August 12, 2018 was a sad and painful day for the family of Willmore "Willie" Stuart Sr. He was found unresponsive in his hotel room in Cancun, Mexico while on a layover flight. A doctor showed up within five minutes and pronounced him dead on the scene. An autopsy was performed and determined the cause of death was a heart attack. He was just 55 years old at his untimely death. He left behind a wife Aletha (Mitzi) and five children Draymore, Willmore Jr., Willisha, Jarius, and Mitiajah.    

Dad had a passion of becoming a pilot ever since he was a adolescent.
“As a little boy growing up on the island of Bimini, I would look to the skies as the Chalk’s plane flew over the Catholic school to land in the water, and dreamt of being able to fly airplanes someday."

Not only did he achieve his goal, he obtain the highest degree as Captain at United Airlines in May 2015. He had been with the company for 21 years.

Vibrant, charismatic, endearing and fun-loving; a few words that would sum up his personality. Willie was without a doubt the life of every party and lived everyday to its fullest. He was a provider, a son, a husband, a father, a grandfather, a brother, an uncle, a nephew, a mentor and a friend to many. He loved and he was loved. He put God first, he took care of his family, he helped his community and mentored all that would listen. He made a great impact on this world. He touched the lives of many and was a support to any and everyone close to him. He had a genuine smile and his heart was pure. Though he experienced some turbulence, it never stopped him from being who he was “A GIANT OF A MAN."

It was brought to my attention that friends, family, and co-workers that knew my father would like to contribute to his funeral cost and transportation of our family to Bimini, Bahamas where Dad will be buried September 8th, 2018. I am starting this campaign to help my mother  Aletha (Mitzi) with these increasing expenses through this difficult time.

Thank you for all of your generous contributions and continued prayers. May his soul rest in the friendly skies.


With appreciation,

Willmore Stuart Jr.
