He grew up and received his education in Kaycee and graduated from Kaycee High School in 1980. After high school, he attended Casper College and received an Associate of Science degree in Geology. His lifelong passion was his interest in local history, especially Native American history of which he spent many hours either hunting for artifacts or flint knapping arrowheads for himself and friends. Stuart spent his entire life on the family ranch and from the time he was small he explored the hills around his childhood home. He was a fine stockman and put great thought in all aspects of working the ranch which he knew like the back of his hand.

He was married to Teresa Cunningham and they made their home in Kaycee on the family ranch. To this union was born a son, Chase, and a daughter, Allison. They later divorced yet remained good friends. After a few years, his relationship with Michelle Martinez was blessed with a set of twins, a daughter, Madison, and a son, Wesley.
