Stewart's greatest joy was to be surrounded by his family and friends. He spent his entire personal and professional life helping others in any way he could. He was so proud of his sons Patrick and William for the men they have become. After stepping away from banking, Stewart was able to spend more time enjoying the sunsets and adventuring with his wife. Stewart loved sharing his home with everyone. He had the gift of living his last year with his grandsons in his home, where he spent his days playing, teaching and loving them every minute of every day. He described having them in his home as “priceless" and was able to slow down and enjoy every second.
