We will let you all know of any plans at a later date. From his family: Jim Stewart, Kenneth Stewart, Ian Breck Stewart and Colleen Margaret.”

Bizz Varty posted, “I just heard we lost my Uncle Scary, aka Colin Stewart. I’m so glad to have known him. The bass player of the original Doug Varty Band, he left quite an impression on my siblings and I. When he used to call our house he would put on a gruff voice and say “this is Santa Claus, have you been good?” We were admittedly terrified at first, but it wasn’t long before our response turned to eye rolls while saying “it’s Colin callin’.”
Maybe he wasn’t the most responsible of adults, maybe he told the same jokes at every rehearsal, but he always had a smile and bit of music or career advice to offer. He’s not in this photo but he was an essential part of my blues education at those Tuesday jam nights back in high school, and even long before that. Every time I hear that Jack radio ad that says “Broadcasting from behind the bass player at Old Chicago’s” I will think of him.”
Our condolences to the loved ones on the deceased. may his soul rest in peace.
