As a business executive, Mr. Stewart worked at West Coast Life Insurance Company and Acacia Van & Storage in Merced. He was a member of the Menlo Circus Club and an honorary member of the Metropolitan Club in San Francisco.
He and his late wife, Verna, regularly attended the San Francisco Opera for more than 25 years. A consummate gardener, he was known for his impeccable manners, kind spirit, graciousness, generosity, and sense of humor, say family members.
He is survived by his daughter, Ellen Stewart Moore; brother Don Stewart of Merced; and two granddaughters. He was preceded in death by his wife, Verna, and daughter, Nancy.
