Stewart D. Neish, age 73, of Greenville, PA, passed away at his home Friday morning, December 22, 2017 after a prolonged illness.
He was born in Edinburgh, Scotland on 6 September, 1944, to parents David and Annie Neish. After completing school, Stewart emigrated to British Columbia, Canada, and later settled in the San Francisco Bay area. He had a successful career as a photographic engineer, and specialized in IMAX cinematography, which enabled him to travel on many film projects all over world.
It was in the San Francisco area that Stewart met Mary Jo Magargee, also of Greenville, and they became devoted life-long companions, eventually settling back in Greenville.
Stewart loved sailing and sailboats, as well as motor sports and photography. In addition, he loved dogs, especially Mooshi, a German Shepherd mix whom Stewart and Mary Jo rescued from the highway while moving from San Francisco to Greenville. He had a wonderful sense of humor, and could make people laugh at the absurdities around them – especially the absurdities in themselves- in a loving way.
He was preceded in death by his parents, and is survived by his loving companion of 17 years, Mary Jo Magargee.
