  3. Stuart family, I am so sorry for your loss of Greg. I have lots of fun memories from our childhood days. The neighborhood kids would get together on a daily basis and play whatever the game of the day, baseball, jump rope, kick the can. I will miss running into Greg and being greeted with “HI Betsy Jill”! Plus it seemed he and I would always schedule our blood donations at the same time and he would keep me busy with conversation because he knew I need to be distracted while donating. Great guy!

  6. My deepest sympathy t the Stuart family. I worked many years for the Veterinary Clinic that Greg and “Cactus” came to. He was always one of my favorite clients.

  21. So sad to hear of your passing Greg. I hved always valued the time that we knew each other. Even though I have not had the pleasure of seeing you for quite some time, know that you are very much missed. You were a great friend and this is a true loss to the community.

  22. Condolences to the Stewart family. It is so hard to lose a loved one and one so young is even harder. May you remember the joyful times that you all spent together and give you peace until you meet again,

  23. My heart aches to hear of Greg’s passing. We were the best of friends. When I lived in the Hillsboro area we became great friends. After moving to California we talked almost every week – so I could keep up with what was happening in the Hillsboro area. Greg was the kind of friend that was always there for you. I knew he was just a phone call away. I will cherish the memories of all the things we did together. I am so thankful that I got to spend time with him last summer on my visit back to the Midwest. He made sure all of my Midwest friends could get together for a nice steak fry last summer. From ice fishing, snow skiing, trips to the lake, to helping with his cattle and the farm. The list goes on and on. He was a great friend and the Stuart family has always treated me so well. Your family is just the best! God Bless you Greg! His friends and family will miss him a lot. But I have a lot of great memories that will live forever in my heart.

  24. Greg, we planned another hunt next year not knowing that a few short weeks after our visit to the states we would have to say our final goodbyes. I am sure that you did not realise how we have grown to admire you and love you as a friend. You will be very dearly missed. Rest in peace. Africa will miss you always!

  25. I never met Greg, but my Mom, Gladys Brager, & brother John/JB, lived a few miles from him, near Golden Lake. Mom was so impressed with Greg…his personality, generosity, and the way he kept his farmstead in perfect order.. He was so good to her. He would bring her homemade pie (I don’t recall what kind). She was in her late 80’s or early 90’s when she met him. She later came to Fargo to live with me her last 5 years, passing away in 2011 at age 99, but every so often, she’d bring his name up. He’s likely already brought her a heavenly pie. My sincere sympathies to all of Greg’s family. Between Mom’s comments about him and all the condolences left on this site, his death will obviously leave a huge hole that no-one else can fill. Prayers for peace and comfort. Ruthie (Brager) Horob

  26. Greg was a well liked guy! Remember him from the time we lived in Hillsboro ! We always had fun just visiting with him RIP Greg! Leigh and Marilyn Filipi

  27. Greg is in birthday party pictures from the 1960’s at our house. The Stuarts are long time family friends. It was tradition for the Stuarts to visit often and especially the night before Christmas Eve.

    Greg and I were in Horse Club together during high school, and he would come to our farm and trailer my horses. He knew the sound of horses being loaded made my Mom nervous; but, of course, Greg’s sense of humor made for a lot of laughs during the loading!

    Greg was also a good high school friend of, Joe,
    my husband. Greg was a groomsman in our wedding!

    Our deepest sympathy is with the Stuart Family.

  29. Rest in peace Greg, you will be missed. I worked for Greg for several years during High School. Greg was an awesome guy and I loved working for him.

  30. Greg, you were a great friend. I not only respected but admired you. Not only as a Sigma Chi brother but as a true friend as we always supported each other. We were both avid hunters and lovers of German Short Hairs. You were both a humble man and a successful business man. I was so sad to hear of your passing and I will miss you. To glory you will go. My deepest sympathy to Ron, Beth Ann, Brad, Jeff and family. Tom and Nila Halverson.

  31. Sorry to see Greg is gone, we had fun chopping corn and cutting hay. He even trusted me with a Brand New haybine he had just bought. Nothing like running an old White tractor too. We were the same age so on the same page. He is safe now in God”s memory for the future. Thank you Greg.

  32. Ron, Jeff, Brad and Beth,
    You have my deepest sympathies in the loss of your son and brother. I always loved running into Greg. When running in to him, he would talk to you like he had just seen you last week even when it had been months. Heaven has gained a wonderful angel! God Bless the memory of Greg Stuart.

  33. Since the Ralph opened, Greg’s UND hockey seats have been right in front of ours. Although we haven’t seen him at hockey in quite a while, we enjoyed his company when he was there. He was willing to visit and talk about the game, so he was a good hockey seat neighbor. Our sympathy regarding this loss. May Greg rest in peace.
