In Passing – Stuart Ian Ashley Piets Retired Architect AIBC

Stuart Ian Ashley Piets Retired Architect AIBC passed away on May 7, 2014.  Stuart passed away peacefully at Victoria Hospice after a courageous, nine year battle with cancer.  Stuart will be greatly missed by all his family and many friends.  Born in England, Stuart came to Canada in 1970 and lived in Toronto with his wife for 11 years.  They later moved to Nanaimo before settling in Victoria in 1985.  An award-winning architect, his passion for design was undeniable as was his zest for life.  He pursued many varied interests with a remarkable intensity.  From cycling, x-country skiing and kayaking to art, photography and music, he was never idle.  Perhaps most of all, he loved sailing.  If he was not out on the water, he was often found at the marina working on his boat and visiting with friends.  Stuart served as the Registrar for the AIBC and also served as a member of the AIBC’s Illegal Practice Committee for several years.  He was the Chair of the Board of Directors at Glenlyon Norfolk School and sat on the Saanich Design Panel.  The family has requested that in lieu of flowers that donations be made to the BC Cancer Society or Victoria Hospice.
