William G. “Bill” Stuart, age 88 of Glasgow passed away the evening of July 31, 2022.
Bill was born on June 18, 1934, to Joyce and Alice (Gessner) Stuart. He grew up and received his education in Glasgow. William married the love of his life, Janet Lou Erickson, on January 4, 1953, in Glasgow. Together they raised 6 children in their homes in Glasgow and Havre.
Bill worked hard throughout his life and could fix anything- a legacy he passed down to his family. He had a zest for life and enjoyed fishing with his wife, bowling, reading and being a father. He was proud of his family. Besides owning a refrigeration business, Bill was a member of both the Teamsters Union and the American Bowling Association.
William was preceded in death by his beloved wife Janet in 2014; a son, William Jeffrey in 1972; and 2 sisters, Susan Frost and Judy Mazzuca.
Surviving Bill are 5 children, Scott (Debra) of Polson, Cindy Foster of Kalispell, Sam (Ann) of Forsyth, Paula Hanson of Havre, and Wendy (Glenn) Fraser of Missoula; a sister, Jayne Stuart of Grapevine, TX; a sister-in-law, Sharon “Sheri” Whittman, of Green Valley, AZ; 14 grandchildren; 25 great-grandchildren; numerous nieces and nephews.
Bill will be in our hearts forever with fond memories of the sound of his laughter and the bear hugs. He will be missed in our world.
Bill has been cremated. A “Celebration of His Life” will take place at a later date. Condolences may be left at bellmortuarymontana.com

Bill was one of my favorite customers when I worked at Albertsons, and I can say with confidence that he was loved by all the other checkers as well. He knew all our names and we were ALL his favorite checker. When we asked him how he was, he always replied the same…”I’m old”. And then we would all laugh. Bill will be missed by many, he really was one of the nicest guys ever!
I always sawing him walking at the Glasgow civic Center
He always had a smile
