This is the a page for us all to celebrate the life of Alan Stewart.
Alan was born on the 21st November 1964 and grew up in Arden. He attended Arden Primary School and moved onto Hillpark Secondary School where he met his soul mate, Pauline.
After leaving school he joined the gas board where he made life long friends. However, his dream was to be a firefighter and he acomplished this in 1987. He began his career at Govan Firestation and moved to Castlemilk Firestation a couple of years later where he became a part of a close-knit team began to be actively involned in the Fire Brigade Union.
In November 1988, Alan and Pauline got married at Eastwood Registrary Office and set up home in Mount Florida. They had 2 beautiful children, Emmeline born in May 1990 and Poppy born in August 1992. He was immensly proud of both his daughters.
Anyone who knows Alan automatically associates him with music. He had such an eclectic taste and was always open to hear different styles and genres. He was a fountain of knowledge and could be relied upon for making the perfect playlist for any occassion. He had more records, CD's and tapes than most record stores combined. Building this collection was his life long passion.
Alan retired from the fire service in 2017, having completed his 30 years service. He continued living his life to its fullest. When he wasn't going to gigs, he was experimenting in the kitchen to make the best food for his friends and family. He was a proud season ticket holder for the Glasgow Warriors and even though he called Scotstoun "the coldest place on earth" he used this as a great excuse for a cheeky dram from his hip flask.
Alan will be remembered for being the life and soul of the party. He would do anything to make everyone around him laugh and was never short of funny anecdotes to share. Everyone who knew him has their own memories, stories and pictures. We would like this to be a place for everyone to share.
Alan's funeral will take place at the Linn Crematorium on Monday 20th September 2021 at 3pm. Everyone is welcome to attend to pay their respects to a loving husband, father and friend.
