Banker, church elder, perfectionist and keen golfer Scott Stewart has died aged 74.
The Church of Scotland played an important role in Mr Stewart’s life. He was a church elder at St John’s Parish Church in Corstorphine and became covenant treasurer in Juniper Green. Mr Stewart had a strong faith, lived life by the rules, and stuck to his principles.
While working at the Bridge of Allan branch of the bank, he lived in Dunblane and attended Dunblane Cathedral. It was, however, more formal than his previous churches, and it was expected that men would wear morning dress for communions. Disagreeing with this, he refused to take part in formal communions on principle.
