Stuart Forrest “Stu” Abens, 59, of Waco went to be with the Lord on Monday, June 15, 2020. A Celebration of Life service will be held at 11 am on Friday, June 26 at the Highland Baptist Church Life Center, with Pastor Mark Wible officiating.

Stu was born November 4, 1960 in Osage, Iowa to parents, Howard and Rita (DeGroote) Abens. He graduated from Osage High School in 1979. Stu was a faithful and heavily involved member of Highland Baptist Church for over 20 years. For 14 years he served with the youth activities. He loved going on mission trips and youth camping trips. Stu was proud of his involvement with the local youth ministry, Heart of Texas Field Guides and helping young men develop a relationship with Jesus. Stu was also proud of his family and enjoyed the time spent with them, including copious amounts of time spent playing card games. He loved his kids and he loved people.

Stu had also traveled extensively and considered his ability to visit 49 states a great accomplishment. He savored any trip that took him to the mountains of Colorado. He loved to fish and was an avid fan of the Green Bay Packers, Chicago Cubs and the Texas A&M Aggies.

Stu was preceded in death by his parents.

He leaves behind to cherish his memory his wife, Temi; children, Megan and husband, Erol, Christopher and wife, Melinda, Amy and husband, Aaron, Jordan and husband, Justin, Seth and wife, Kiri, Cody and Jesse; siblings, Peggy and husband, Bob, Patty and husband, Jon, and Jim and wife, Kathy; grandchildren, Weston, Cora, Paxton and a granddaughter on the way; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

Please know you and the rest of the family are in my prayers. I am praying you feel the presence of the Holy Spirit with you daily as you walk through this time and he grants you the comfort only he can. Stu was such a humble, funny and kind friend. I know he is rejoicing in heaven but I also know you will miss him terribly.
With deepest Sympathy,
Kristi (Burkett) Bajer

The kindest, most caring man I've ever known is now basking in the Light of our Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you, dear Father God, for sharing Stu with us here on earth for a little while. He made the most of his time and I know you are well pleased.
