Default Former Flames equipment manager, Bobby Stewart, passes away at age 69

He was a beauty.

Quote:
For 19 years, Bobby Stewart tended to the equipment of, and a myriad of small details relating to, the Flames.

Their readiness. Their comfort. Their well-being.

One of those unsung, jack-of-all-trades stalwarts who works tirelessly behind the scenes to facilitate and optimize on-ice performance.

Tuesday, Bobby Stewart left us too early, while at home in Orlando, Fla., aged 69.

How good was Bobby Stewart at his job? In 2014, he was recognized by the the Society of Professional Hockey Equipment Managers and Professional Hockey Athletic Trainers Society.

"Just an amazing, valuable human being," is how Theoren Fleury describes Stewart. "People like Bobby are truly the unsung heroes of hockey. They don't sleep. They're on call 24/7. They're organized. When you walk into the room before the game everything's clean, pristine.

"And it's all him.
RIP Big man.

It's easy to overlook the roles these guys fill on a team. Stewart was an important part of it in the early days .

Easily recognizable face of the bench during the Flames early to glory years. I remember reading an article about how hard these guys work during the season.



Bearcat and Bobby were a great team


RIP Bobby
