William David “Bill” Stuart of West Des Moines, IA, 62, passed away unexpectedly on June 24, 2022 in his home. A memorial Masonic Service will be held at 1:30 p.m., Friday, July 8, 2022 at Iles Westover Chapel at 6337 Hickman Rd, Des Moines, IA. Interment will follow at Des Moines Masonic Cemetery.

Bill was born June 16, 1960, in Centerville, Iowa to Harold David Stuart and Emily (Read) Stuart. He graduated from Centerville High School in 1979 and then headed to Des Moines to study IT, accounting and management at American Institute of Business and Simpson College where he received his Bachelor of Science degree. He worked for 34 years at West Bank and Fiserv in IT operations until he retired in 2016.

Bill was an active 32nd degree Scottish Rite Mason and current treasurer of the Capital Lodge #110 AF & AM. He had served as Worshipful Master and on the cemetery Board of Directors. Bill was a living example of the freemasonry values of reverence for God, devotion to country, integrity, justice, tolerance, and service to humanity. He was also a long-time member and active attendee and volunteer of Lutheran Church of Hope.

When not with friends, Bill enjoyed watching sports on TV. Some of his favorites were auto racing, the Minnesota Vikings, Arizona Diamondbacks and Iowa Hawkeyes. Bill recently had fun investigating what could potentially be false news. He loved to play golf and pickleball. Bill had a kind, caring and gentle nature and was always there to lift people up. His loyalty and love for his friends and family as well as his humor and generosity will be greatly missed.

Bill is survived by his aunt, Orvella Wright, and numerous cousins and their families. He was preceded in death by his parents.
