His fondness for Walt Disney classic comic books often transported him to whimsical worlds, a pleasure he never outgrew.
A true outdoorsman, Stewart found solace and inspiration in the natural beauty of his surroundings. He enjoyed cycling and taking long walks at the Ashokan Reservoir, where the mountain vistas never failed to captivate him. His talents extended beyond the intellectual and into the practical; Stewart was an adept electrician who built his own home in 1985-86, showcasing his ability to put anything together with skill and precision.
Stewart's life was one of service not only to his family but also to his community. His enduring commitment was evidenced by his long-time membership in the Woodstock Ambulance Squad and the Olive First Aid & Rescue Squad, where he volunteered countless hours to help those in need.
