"Uncle Stu. Thank you for being you. Thank you for being an incredible father to my cousins, for being an unparalleled best friend to my father, for being a loving husband to my aunt," Kira wrote on Instagram. "Thank for proving that even while up against the hardest physical challenges you can run, bike, swim, fight, and continue to inspire those around you."
"Thank you for never letting a disease take away your spirit, your sense of humor, your passion and joy for life and your family," she continued. "I love you Uncle Stu. I always will. Rest in peace, rest in power, and rest in the knowledge that your family will always be taken care of."
