Birth: Feb. 18, 1918
Davis County
Utah, USA
Death: Jul. 21, 2011

Our beloved Husband, Father and Grandfather passed away peacefully on July 21, 2011 at the age of 93.

Stuart was born February 18, 1918 to Thomas E. Winegar and Vilate Muir. It was said that he was born in a Corn Flake box, as his parents ran the mercantile co-op in West Bountiful, T. E. Winegar and Sons, where he began his career.

He married Evelyn Argyle on August 13, 1941. Over the next 70 years they taught their children honesty and integrity and instilled in each of them a hard work ethic.

He loved his country and joined the Army Air Corps in 1943 where he served served for four years. After returning home he and his family opened the flagship grocery store Winegar's Supermarket on Highway 91 in Bountiful.

He was active in the LDS church and served two missions, the first in Hawaii as a young man in 1937; the second later with his wife, Evelyn in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

He was a founding member of Associated Food Stores and served on the Utah Retail Grocers Association as a board member and also as its president. He was proud of the fact that at age 93 he was able to renew his drivers license even without glasses.

He had a delightful sense of humor and would come alive with a microphone in his hand in front of a crowd. He was famous among his 29 grandchildren, 58 great-grandchildren, and four great-great-grandchildren for his hilarious rendition of Hard to be Humble. He could always remember each of their names and would recite them each night as he lay in bed. He was an important part of their lives. He left a legacy of love and devotion.

Preceded in death by his parents, his sisters, Luraine Lee and Jean Bangerter, his grandson, Zachary Winegar, and two great-grandchildren, River McQueen and Jaycee Winegar.

He has two surviving brothers, Dick and Wayne. He is also survived by his wife, Evelyn; children, Sally Barber (Phil), Dee (Gail), Dirk (Linda), Bill (Barbara) and Rock (Susanne); and his grandchildren.

A viewing will be held Tuesday, July 26 from 6:30-8:30 at Russon Brothers Mortuary, 295 N. Main St. Bountiful, and prior to the funeral on Wednesday 9:30-10:45 at Mueller Park Stake Center, 1800 E. Mueller Park Road (1800 S.) Funeral services will be held at 11:00.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Primary Children's Medical Center.
