Ross "Bud" Junior Stewart
Ross “Bud” Junior Stewart, 83, went to his heavenly home on February 21, 2017 while at Overbrook Nursing Home. His devotion to his family and his firm belief in God supported him in his struggles and ultimately gave him peace. Ross was an active member at the Rutland Freewill Baptist Church for many years; he was a deacon and a song leader.
Bud was born to the late Ross and Elizabeth Stewart in Syracuse, Ohio on May 14, 1933. Bud was a hardworking husband and father. He retired from Midwest Steel in 1980 where he was a foreman. Bud was outspoken, but anyone who knew him knew just how kindhearted and loving he truly was. Everywhere he went he was ready to share the gospel of Jesus Christ; he was someone always willing to pray for others.
Bud was blessed with a large and loving family. He is survived by his wife, Jean Stewart; his four sons Mike (Sharon), Steve (Kelly Leigh), Kelly, and Kevin Stewart; his two daughters Diane (Pete) Hendricks and Darlene (Don) Gambill; his six siblings Bob (Dorthy), Rollie (Shirley), Roger (Elaine), and Rudy (Rosalyn) Stewart, Jenny Lou (Jim) Clifford, and Doll Woods. Bud also leaves behind twelve grandchildren, Chris (April) Stewart, Jared (Stefani) Stewart, Sheila (John) McKinney, Travis (Amber) Hendricks, Jason (Brandi) Stewart, Stephanie (Cass) Cleland, Tyler Fry, Stacy Acree, Corey and Ross Stewart, Chad, Ashley, and Andrea Bartrum. Along with his grandchildren, he was blessed with twenty-one great-grandchildren. Bud also had seven step-children and several step-grandchildren that he loved as his own. He will be dearly missed by his loved ones, who celebrate the fact that he is at peace with his creator.
Bud is preceded in death by his first wife Wanda Stewart. Bud and Wanda were married for thirty-four years in which they raised a beautiful family. Unfortunately, Bud lost Wanda after a difficult battle with cancer. He then remarried his second wife Trudie Stewart, they were happily married for twenty-six years before her passing.
