Paying tribute, Wandsworth Cllr leader Ravi Govindia said: “Stewart was a sincere and passionate campaigner on the issues he cared deeply about. His loss at such a young age has come as a huge shock to all those who knew him.
“We will remember him as a warm and genial man with a tremendous sense of humour. He served the people of Bedford ward with great distinction for many years. Our deepest condolences go out to his family, especially his wife Elizabeth and his children.”
During his time on the council Hon Alderman Finn served as Chairman of both the licensing committee and regulatory licensing committee and as deputy chairman of both the housing and environment and public services committees.
