Stuart Newmark, A constant part of my life and among my closest friends since the sixth or seventh grade.  All of the kind words of solace, condolence, and wonderful memories shared, and expressed by, our classmates for those we have already lost too soon apply to equally Stuart.  I post in this form for, if not, then, the length would be unmanageable. Bottom line, the guy was a Mensch. A great friend, dad, husband andpartnerAn inside joke: Stuart, you always made me look good!  I’ll miss that very much. RIP my friend.

Stu and I were teammates but not close friends at BHHS, but over the past 50 years we've run into each other at lots of class and sports reunions. At those times, we always enjoyed seeing each other, talking, and hanging out. I really liked him. My love goes out to his family and friends, especially Tony, Jason, and Fred.

My friendship with Stuart traces to near his arrival at Beverly Vista in seventh grade. Sports gave us common ground. The summer after junior year, we played golf as often as we could including walking on the back nine at Rancho.  We grew closer over senior year. As I moved to Indiana a few years later, seeing the guys when I visited became ever more important. Playing golf and gathering for a meal along with our reunions was a real lifeline for me and Stuart became an ever more significant presence over these many years. In the early nineties the trips grew more frequent and in each of these, We always made time to meet talking family, business and personal growth. A deep mutual respect developed over that time and was renewed each visit. He came to Indiana not long after our 20th to see the Indy 500 and play golf. A great set of days. As with most of our circle, we are given to a certain appearance of verbal abuse and other rites of bonding. It has always been this way. Stuart was a purveyor and a consumer. Quite accomplished. Stuart, Jason and I took my younger brother to play golf. After 5 minutes, my brother asks: are you guys always this nice to each other? When Stu and I got together, after long absence, he would present as angry, critical and even caustic. I would start to take him seriously for just a moment, he sold it well, and then launch forth into a barrage of animated expression complete with explicit personal anatomical instructions as to when and how to put what where!! We both would break up laughing as our friendship resumed like we had always been. I was able to see him in LA last November at a gathering. There is little more important than friends and family. Everyone of us expressed the love and respect for each other and for the privilege of knowing one another most all of our lives. I am truly grateful to have the friends I have. Stuart is my friend and I am better for it. All love and sincere condolences to his family and all who love him.

So sorry to hear this sudden news about your passing on Stu. I will miss you being there in your personable best next time we would have been together in moments of time. I will remember you well always Stu. Save a place for me close by and we can push up daisies together and play some of our favorite games and talk about important things together again. RIP
