Gordon E. Stuart


Eastport and Bangor - Gordon E. Stuart, 70, of Eastport and Bangor, Maine suddenly passed away due to a car accident on July 20, 2019.
He graduated Shead Memorial High School in 1966 and Northern Maine Voc Tech in Presque Isle. He worked at the Mearl Corporation, the GP Mill where he worked as a sheet metal processor for over 30 years. He also volunteered on the Eastport Fire Department, a member of the Knights of Phythias and attended Boys State. After moving to Bangor to be closer to his daughters, he was a security guard/parking attendant at Eastern Maine Medical Center and the Cross Center, where he loved to talk and cheer on the Maine Black Bears. He enjoyed watching Shead play sports (giving each of his favorite players tips on how to play a little better or who to watch out for on the opposing team), wrestling, NASCAR and loved hanging out with his grandchildren. When visiting Eastport you could find him at the Waco Diner. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
He was predeceased by his parents Marie Antoinette (Blanchette) and Gordon Edward Stuart; his grandparents Edward and Nellie (Tinker) Stuart; and a special friend Laura Skinner.
He is survived by his loving daughters, Bobbie Marie Stuart, her fiancé Nicholas Oppedisano, their children Gage Stuart, Netalia and Amber all of Bangor, and Shelley Stuart; her son John Stuart of Bangor, and the mother of his daughters who held a special place in his heart Gloria Stuart-Wade of Bangor; his sisters, Mary Verge and her husband Neal of Boothbay Harbor, Anita Parker and Raye of Bowdoin. He is also survived by his mother, Emily J. Stuart of Eastport; his brothers, Neal Genz of Madawaska, Timmy and his wife Donna of Clifton, Kenneth and his companion June of Cornish, James and his wife Judy of Eastport and Robin and his wife Debbie of Eastport. He is also survived and loved by many cousins, nieces and nephews.
A memorial service will be announced at a later date, with a private family graveside service.

Your dad was a wonderful caring man. I'd always look forward to talking to him when he came in to pick Gage up from school. We always talked baseball. If I remember right he was a Yankee's fan and I'm a Red Sox Fan. He'd always say how'd those Red Sox do last night and we'd laugh. Thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this difficult time.

I have known Gordon for over 40 years. We always loved talking basketball at the tin shop at Georgia Pacific in Baileyville. I will miss seeing him at the Cross Center before the Maine Women games. He loved talking about his children and grandchildren, and especially the Shead Tigers. It won't be the same going to the Maine games without you being by the Maine team tunnel giving players the High Five. RIP my friend you will be missed,
