    Cheryl, My sincerest sympathy to you – (as you know) your brother was such a big part of my high school/young adult years…whether it was relentlessly trying to give me a ride home from school in his gremlin or hanging out countless nights at Salvato’s where he shared his love of music, intellect, and infectious sense of humor. He introduced us to lifetime friends, future boyfriends + even a husband! There was never a dull moment when Stewie was around! He used to have a set of mannequin legs he loved to prank people with by placing under his car in the parking lot that would freak out people by thinking they almost, or did run over someone – that was Stewie!! At the same time, he was also a gentle and kind soul. Looking back, they were crazy but some of the most awesome years of my life. I regret not keeping better in touch with him once I moved away. We take for granted our friends will somehow always be there – and in my heart he is – I will miss him and cherish my memories of him with love.

    My deepest condolences to you, Cheryl, your family, and all of Stew’s friends.

    And to you my brother, I just want to say, thank you. Thank you SO much for the love, the support, the countless laughs, the music, the friendship, EVERYTHING. You touched so many lives, helped so many folks along your way, and we are all so very grateful. Thank you for walking beside me on this life journey, if only for a brief time. As long as I live and my mind is good, I will NEVER forget you. I love you, bro.

    “I’m walking down that long lonesome road babe
    Where I’m bound, I can’t tell
    But goodbye is too good a word gal
    So I’ll just say fare thee well.
    When the rooster crows at the break of dawn
    You’ll look out your window and I’ll be gone…
    Don’t think twice, it’s alright.”

    To the family and friends of Stew.

    I am sorry for our loss. We have lost such a colorful and vibrant personality yet Heaven has gained an awesome angel.
    I had the pleasure of knowing Stewart as a neighbor, a friend, an inspiration, a roommate, a co-champion of air guitar, the man with simply the greatest laugh in history, the guy who talked me into breaking the silence and boredom of my high school graduation by raising dual peace signs and simply yelling wwoooo! as I received my diploma, yeah, he’s holding his stomach and laughing now remembering that one. He was to me a near rock star personality. The Dude with the Bad-Fast, black, Ford Mustang GT, aptly named ; “The Dark Horse” in case you didn’t know. And a man who had one of the biggest hearts filled with enough compassion to love the world.
    I had not seen Stew in years but now I realize how much of an impact he made on me when I was young. Was not able to understand how lucky I am to have known him. I will go forth carrying fond memories of our brother. If you see me smiling or laughing it’s a good chance i will be enjoying a memory of Stewart.
    Brother, Go Rest High On That Mountain, Your Work On Earth Is Done. Go To Heaven Shouting, Love For The Father and The Son.
    I Am Truly Looking Forward To Seeing You Again!!
