It is with profound sadness and broken hearts that we, the family, announce the sudden passing of Stuart Brenton, age 60, on Wednesday, February 2, 2022, in Sydney.

Born September 28, 1961, in Burin, Newfoundland, Stuart was the son of the late William Thomas and Gertrude Marion Brenton, whom he loved dearly.

Stuart was a commercial fisherman for most of his life but spent some years as a roofer. He was the best back yard mechanic you’d ever meet. Stuart had a sense of humor that was unmatched and a laugh that was just as contagious as it was unmistakable. He was an amazing provider to his family and was loved by everyone who’d meet him. Stuart welcomed everyone with open arms and treated them as family.

Stuart is survived by his brothers, George, Sydney, and David, Burin, NL; son, Neil (Alicia); daughter, Angela (Cody); mother of his children, Darlene Koziel; grandchildren, Melanie, Carson, Kyla, Paiton/Leo, Bree and Avery; as well as many cousins, nieces, nephews, grand nieces and, nephews and his godchildren.

(entrance on Church St.), Whitney Pier on Monday, February 7, 2022. A gathering of family and friends will take place from 12 to 3 p.m. with the funeral service to follow at 3 p.m. in the All Faith Chapel with Rev. Sheldon Chant officiating. Private family interment will take place at a later date.

Covid protocols will be practiced at the service.

Donations in memory of Stuart may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.
