Stuart passed away January 4, 2018 at his home peacefully with his family by his side. He was born in Cedar City, Utah, on November 28, 1943 to Bruce and Adele (Bayles) Matheson.
Stuart met and subsequently married his wife Sharon Ann Mosher in Ely, Nevada, on June 28, 1970. They soon had Scott and Tina. They then moved to Colorado to the family ranch where they had Stacey. They enjoyed the ranch for several years. They later decided to move to Utah for better job opportunities. Stuart got hired on with the Iron County Road Department, and worked there until he retired. He spent his remaining years in Parowan, watching his grand kids grow up. He was so proud to watch them succeed.
Stuart is preceded in death by his parents Bruce and Adele Matheson; his wife Sharon Matheson; his sister Terry Matheson; and his children Scott Matheson, and Tina (Leroy) Davenport. He is survived by his sister Penny (Wayne) Eyre; his daughter Stacey Matheson; his grandkids, Brandon Matheson, Sheyenne (Corey) Burt, and Brady Matheson; and his great granddaughter, Kinley Burt, which he called his treasure.
