SNP councillor for Bridge of Don Sandy Stuart has died at the age of 68.
He passed away after a short illness, surrounded by his family at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary last night.
He was first elected to the council in 2012, and was re-elected in 2017.
SNP Group Leader, Stephen Flynn, said:
“Sandy had a short, but hard-fought battle with illness and passed away peacefully in the company of his family.
“Our immediate thoughts are with Sandy’s wife, Wendy, and the entire family at this terribly difficult time.
“Sandy was so proud to serve his constituents in the Bridge of Don and to represent his city as a Councillor for over seven years.
“We were privileged to call him a friend and colleague and will all miss his passion and enthusiasm.”

So sad that our friend and SNP stalwart, Cllr Sandy Stuart, passed away last night. He was an absolute gent who cared passionately for Aberdeen and Scotland. I’ll sorely miss comparing our Tartan Army jaunts. My thoughts are with Wendy and the entire family.
