WILLIAM F. "BILL" STUART
DOVER-FOXCROFT, William F. “Bill” Stuart, 74, husband of Anita (Eberbach) Stuart, went to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on January 16, 2003, after a brief but courageous battle with liver cancer. He was born August 23, 1928, in the Bronx, New York, where he attended Riverdale Country School. In 1946 he enlisted in the Army and served in Japan in the signal corps. Bill attended the School of Visual Arts for 2 ½ years in New York City and worked as a graphic artist for many years. An accomplished artist, he painted his favorite topics in oils, including his Lord, landscapes, seascapes, and barns. With a love for the outdoors, and a spirit for adventure in his heart, Bill headed for Alaska, where he worked for the Alaska Railroad in Anchorage and Whittier. An avid fan of boxing, he was a welterweight and boxed while serving in the Army, while living in Alaska, and was a Golden Gloves boxer in New York City. Several years ago, he assisted in coaching younger men at the PAL Gym in Bangor. After many escapades and detours in his life, he finally settled down to a new life in New York City, later moving to Dover-Foxcroft. Bill also worked as a brick and stonemason. He always had a soft spot in his heart for the many pets that he has had over the years.
He will be sadly missed and is survived by his beloved wife and sons, Anita and Brian of Dover-Foxcroft and Toby of Portland; special friend, H. John Campaign of New York City; cousin, Floyd Loomis and his wife, Betty of Seattle, Washington; brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, Eduard and Jeanne Eberbach of North Carolina, Renate Victor of Nevada and Richard and Linda Eberbach of Dover-Foxcroft, and many friends.
A celebratory service will be held at 2 PM, Saturday January 18th, at Living Word Assembly of God Church, East Main Street, Dover-Foxcroft. A reception will follow in the Fellowship Hall. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Pine Tree Hospice, Living Work Assembly of God Church, or Mayo Regional Hospital Capital Campaign. Arrangements by Crosby & Neal Funeral Home, Guilford.
