HULME, Stewart of Blenheim

Posted by on February 21, 2015

Hulme1Stewart Hulme of Blenheim passed away on Friday February 20, 2015 at the age of 72 years.  Stewart will be missed greatly by his sons Chris Hulme (Sheri) of Blenheim and Parry Hulme of Erie Beach, by his grandchildren Mackenzie, Ryley and Kelsi and by his sister Charlotte Melnyk of Chatham.  He was predeceased by his wife Brenda in 1994, parents Ruth & Gordon Hulme and by his brother in law Dale Melnyk.  He is survived by many brothers & sisters in law, aunts & uncles and nieces & nephews.  Stewart spent most of his life driving truck, retiring from Charron Transport in Chatham.  He spent his early days farming in Dover as well as Chatham Township where he was the first person to spray ethrel on tomatoes to ripen them.  He was a Volunteer Firefighter at Kings Corners in Chatham Township.  In his quiet times, he loved a good Toronto Maple Leafs hockey game and a Blue Jays baseball game.  Stewart was faced with challenges after being diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy fifty years ago, but he picked himself up, brushed himself off and made his life the best that it could be.  Maybe the biggest accomplishment in his life was being an awesome role model to his sons, teaching them the value of hard work, an honest living and of keeping a positive outlook on life.  Family and friends are invited to the Blenheim Community Funeral Home for visitation on Tuesday February 24, 2015 from 2 – 4 & 7 – 9 and again on Wednesday February 25 from 12 – 2 p.m. followed by a Funeral Service, conducted by Rev Bill Terris.  In keeping with Stewarts wishes, cremation will follow.  Friends wishing to remember Stewart with a memorial donation are asked to consider the Muscular Dystrophy Association.  Online condolences for the family and memorial donations may be left at www.blenheimcommunityfuneralhome.com
