It is with great sorrow and regret that Granite City Brass announce the death of Stewart Gilmour on the 26th June 2008 after a very short and courageous battle with cancer. Stewart was a dedicated bandsman and talented musician who played the Flugel Horn with great distinction in the band and had recently been the band chairman. Stewart moved to Aberdeen in 1979 to study music education having been taught to play by Hugh Brennan and having previously played for Kirkintilloch and Irvine Benwhat bands. Stewart graduated with two merits in Academic Studies and Practice of Teaching and gained a Masters Degree in Education (Educational Management). For 16 years Stewart was Principal Teacher of Music at St Machar Academy but held the post of Deputy Head Teacher at the time of his untimely death aged only 48. Stewart was a beloved husband of Kay and a much loved father of Ashlea, Matthew, Bethany, Chloe and Kyle. Funeral service, to which all family and friends are invited, will be held at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, North Anderson Drive, Aberdeen on Tuesday, July 1 at 1.00 p.m, thereafter a committal service at Echt Cemetery Family flowers only please and donations in lieu to Roxburghe House or Macmillan Nurses. No black attire. He will be sorely missed by all.
