William Eugene Stuart

William Eugene Stuart, a man with a gentle spirit, an easy laugh, a love of nature and of his fellow man, passed suddenly Friday, January 11, 2020, at his home in Sterling, Virginia, of natural causes. Will was born September 24, 1973, to William B. Stuart and Diane Messig Stuart in At-lanta, Georgia, three minutes after his identical twin brother, John B. Stuart. He was a 1992 graduate of Blacksburg High School in Blacksburg, Virginia, and a graduate of West Virginia University in Morgantown, West Virginia, in Landscape Architecture. Will worked for U.S. Lawns in Ashburn, Virginia, as an Enhancement Supervisor and was beloved by both his co-workers and his clients, who already miss his gentle spirit. He worked in the landscape industry for over 30 years and used his talents for community projects as well. The project that he was most proud of was his volunteer work with Discovery Park in Sterling, Virginia. Will is preceded in death by his father, William B. Stuart; his paternal grandparents, Eugene and Mary Olive Stuart of Falls Creek, PA; and his maternal grand-parents, Frank and Margaret Messig of Branchville, New Jersey. He is survived by his mother, Diane Messig Stuart of Starkville, MS; his brother, John B. Stuart and his wife Lauren of Gaith-ersburg, MD; his sister, Mary Margaret and her husband Thomas Barrentine of Starkville, MS; and his fiancée of 22 years, Liza Young and her mother Daisy Young.  He is also survived by his very special aunts and uncles, Bob and Lori Stuart of Falls Creek, PA, Charlie and Nancy Poust of State College, PA, and Joan Messig of Crossville, TN. He is survived by one niece, Kristy Barrentine and her husband Vernon Brown of Noxapater, MS; and a great-nephew, Phoe-ynx Paul Brown; as well as cousins, Caroline and Thomas Francis and their daughters Sara and Anna of Springboro, OH, and Robert Poust of Tyrone, PA and his son Anthony Poust. A Celebration of Life was held at Carlson Shugarts Funeral Home in Brockway, PA on January 25, 2020, and his body will be interred in Beechwoods Cemetery in Jefferson County, PA, near his father. Flowers are welcome, and the family is asking for donations to be made to Mississippi Log-A-Load, the American Heart Association and the American Diabetes Association.
