The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs would like to express their sincere condolences to the family of Jack Stewart after he passed away last Saturday at the age of 99.
Stewart was the oldest surviving Canterbury First Grade player, having played 36 games for the club from 1941-42, 1944 and 1946-47, with his career split after serving in PNG during the Second World War.
The Stewart family have a long-standing history with the club with his brothers Kevin and Frank being Life Members of the Football Club and having the Grandstand at Belmore named after them as the Stewart Stand.
Jack Stewart is survived by his son Peter, grandchildren Melanie, Damian, Jacob, Andrew, Joel and Ashley, as well as seven great grandchildren. His wife Mary and son Steve are deceased.
His funeral will take place this Thursday at 1.30pm at the Our Lady of Fatima Church in Caringbah, with a celebration of Jack’s life to be held at the Sharks at Kareela club following the service at around 4.00pm.
