Stu has the talent of making anybody feel like a superstar. I met him at the PRI Show several years back, and asked if we were going to the "BBQ" with him and some friends. Little did I know who was going...What a guy. I admire him greatly. Great luck, Stu, I know you will be reading this thread.




I'd forgotten about Stewart's penchant for BBQ. I live in Texas where there is a BBQ place every couple of miles. When I get to Florida I want seafood, but Stewart gave me a break the last time I saw him with Joe Pappas and Joe's wife and we ate at a regular restaurant in Tampa. He told me the BBQ was a tradition with the Missile gang in Gainesville as the BBQ joint was the only thing around the track back then. Thanks for everything Stewart, even the BBQ, LOL!

... COPD thing going on for the last couple of years. He's still smoking and wears an oxygen supply and smokes in bed. A real recipe for disaster. Robert tells me that Stewart's mind is going and he can't remember how to turn on the computer anymore.



Some of my older family members have had to deal with similar health issues, and -- unfortunately -- it's just a downhill slide from what you've described.

Too bad, since he sounds like a really nice & knowledgeable person to lose this way. I hope things work out OK for him in the long run.

Sounds like he is just giving up, I wish he wouldn't but it happens all too frequently, my Aunt was one.

I have known Stewart since about 1973. Dick Oldfield and I have spent a lot of time with Stewart in Tampa over the years and we keep in touch with him. Lately, since Stewart has a very difficult time communicating with anyone other that his primary caregivers, I have been speaking with his girlfriend Gwen on a regular basis. Yes, Stewart is very ill with COPD. As you probably know, there is no cure. Stewart is very strong willed and he prefers to live out his life in a manner that he has chosen. Lately, Stewart has pretty much abandoned speaking with people outside an extremely small circle of caregivers and friends. We all need to respect his wishes. All I can ask of the MOPARTS community is to keep Stewart in your thoughts and prayers. He has given a lot of himself to the MOPARTS community and that says a lot about his character. I will post in the future about what is happening but I want to be candid, the long term outlook is not good for him

I met him at the Hemi Reunion and he gave me a poster of a Hemi Dart. A true gentleman----I wish him the best.

Thanks for the update Joe. I haven't seen Stewart since we went out for lunch right before the PRI show in 2012. Stewart gave me a pass so I could attend the show. Tell him the guys on Moparts are thinking of him and praying for him. If it gets to the point of needing terminal care, my mother got excellent treatment at Suncoast Hospice in Pinellas Park across the bay.

Do any of you think that Stewart would to talk to someone that had COPD, was a heavy smoker and is now doing OK and living a oxygen-tank-free life ... that would help him ?

I am very sad to announce that Stewart Pomeroy passed away at 6:33 PM this evening. I will make updates to this forum as the information becomes available. Please keep my dear friend in your thoughts and prayers. Stewart will be missed by all who were touched by his time on earth. He was a lifelong Mopar supporter and racer. God speed my friend.

Wow.....so sorry to hear this news. I was afraid to open this thread again, fearing that I would find this terrible news. Thoughts and prayers go out to Stew's family and close friends. The Mopar family lost one of the great men.
RIP, Stewart Pomeroy. It was an honor to have known you.

I'm sorry to hear that. I think it might be for the best for Stewart. He didn't seem to be getting better and didn't have a quality of life. Give my condolences to his girlfriend Gwen and his friends and family. So long old friend, say hey to Ronnie and Donnie for us.
