Creighton, Stuart Charles Wilson

Stuart Charles Wilson Creighton of Strathcona County, AB died suddenly at the age of 75 years on December 15, 2021 at home with his wife by his side.

Stuart had a very rewarding and interesting life. Born in Edinburgh, Scotland at the end of WWII on April 14, 1946 to an English mother and Canadian father, he grew up in Ottawa, ON. As a young adult, he decided to move to Australia and lived there for 4 years, worked as a motorcycle mechanic for a while, then travelled the Outback, often sleeping in the open under a true night sky. He returned to Ottawa for a few months, then moved to Scotland for 2 years working in the construction and oil industries.

In 1969, he met the love of his life, Dianne, in Ottawa but it was 9 years before their paths merged in 1978. Together, they moved to Strathcona County, Alberta in 1981 where Stuart worked as an operator at the Suncor refinery in Sherwood Park. Travel continued to be an important part of Stuart’s life as he and Dianne shared holiday adventures in Bali, Singapore, Aruba, Cook Islands, Bahamas and Mexico plus numerous road trips including to Newfoundland and several of the central and western States.

Stuart loved all creatures, especially dogs and horses. He enjoyed motorcycles, classic cars and trucks and country music. He was always ready to meet up for a beer, listen to live music, visit with friends or respond to a call for assistance with a project.

Stu liked to joke around and tease, always with good humour – that’s how he’ll be remembered. Anyone wishing to make a donation in his memory, please consider the Salvation Army.

I had the great privilege and honour to work with Stu at the Edmonton Refinery for many years. Stuart was a great team member on our crew at work and an equally great person and friend outside of the workplace. During the long hours and shifts we all worked together, we could always count on Stu for his great sense of humour and his interesting tales to help make the shift go by quickly. We could also always trust that he would be there for the many times we needed his help in the often very stressful parts of the job and his career. Stu was a big, positive influence for me and others that worked with him and knew him. Our thoughts and prayers are with him and we extend our heart felt condolences to Diane and all of the other people that had the opportunity to meet and know him.
