Stewart's Tribute Wall

Tributes (1):

  • Stu,
    While I did not see you much these last few years and I couldn’t make it to your funeral to say goodby, you will always be remembered. So many wonderful memories of family times spent together. From the quonset hut days, and playing in the dirt piles with Jeff, to the refurbished school house and wrestling matches in the living room. I always loved with you, Lois, Jeff, & Cheryl would show up at our farm in Iowa Falls. It always meant picnics and building projects and card games and lots of coffee. Jeff & Cheryl my heart breaks with yours. I loved your mom & dad and both of you. Chuck
