    Mr. Stewart will be greatly missed. He was a wonderful teacher with the very best values. He taught my sister(Georgia)and I at Green Bank High School in the Sixties. He will be missed so much. Our sympathy to his family.

    Stewart Family,

    I simply cannot relate to you all the fond memories that I have of your Dad.  Though I was not fortunate enough to have him as a teacher, I certainly enjoyed the time he spent at Orville's Service Station when I worked there during my high school and college years.  He always had a story to tell us and it was usually followed by a laugh.  Your dad and mother were very special people and a friend to all.  Just think of all the lives that were touched in such a positive way by your Dad's actions.  That is truly a legacy that will live on.

    I am thinking of you during this time and remember that a loss in our little community is a loss to everyone who lived and grew up there.

    Sending my sympathy and everlasting respect for a wonderful man and life!

    Allen was part of our extended family.  We grew up with his children and have many fond memories.  His daughter Debbie certainly gave him roses by being with him during his illness.  Prayers and love to his family.  He was a great man who will be missed and such a part of the community.

    Mr. Stewart and his wife were dear family friends.  I grew up around them and their daughter Debbie.  Mr. Stewart was also my principal and somehow, the two roles in my life never crossed paths.  At school, he was my principal, at home, he was a family friend.  I loved both of them dearly.  I never had another principal who upheld the high standards set by Mr. Stewart.  He will be greatly missed and my most sincere condolences to Debbie, and to Doug as well.  I know all too well how much it hurts to loose your parents.
