A mural designed and painted by art pupils from Queen Anne High and Dunfermline High School now sits prominent and colourful on the North Stand wall at East End Football Park.
The mural was unveiled on Saturday 11th April 2009 attended by family and close friends.
Stuart was a big fan of Dunfermline Athletic Football Club and always attended games when he could, it is also well documented that Stuart declined the offer of becoming a director in favour of staying a normal fan of the club. The mural now sits alongside other “Pars” heroes, Norrie McCathie, Jock Stein, Istvan Kozma and Jim Leishman.
Jim Leishman said, “Stuart would always stand over in that corner when he was back home but when his work took him all over the world he would always phone home to find out the score.
The montage was designed after pupils studied photographs of Stuart and also spoke to friends and family about his likes and interests.
Daughter Kirsten, said, “The artists have done a great job and this was definitely the right place for my dad to be remembered.
“He loved coming here and would come back home hoarse after all the shouting. It’s great that he is being remembered in this way in Dunfermline.”
Stuart loved football and the mural at East End Park is a fitting tribute for what some people would describe as his second home.
Brother-in-law Jamie Davidson said, “He was a great Pars fan but loved all football and went to see matches of any standard anywhere he was.
“He also enjoyed playing for the Fod Sunday league team and would come back from some weird places just for a match. The band would wake up abroad after playing somewhere and Stuart would be away heading back to play in the Sunday league.”
As well as the mural for Stuart on the North Stand a portait of Stuart is also on the wall in Legenda Bar at the footbal stadium.
