Russell Sterling Stewart Jr died on April 5, 2018. He was preceded in death by his mother Marguerite Stockseth, his father Russell Stewart Sr, daughter Amy, and grandson Calvin. He is survived by his wife, Donna, and seven children: Erik (Denisse Guarda), Kirk, Angela (Blaine Atwood), Kevin, Michael, Aubrey (Joshua Sherwood), Scott, and ten grandchildren.
He served actively as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the capacity of missionary (Brazil), bishop (Coalinga, CA), high counselor (Hanford, CA stake), and gospel doctrine teacher.
Russell was a gifted teacher and he used this talent to serve others professionally as well as at home and at church. His Christ-like compassion, extensive knowledge, and pun-tastic sense of humor enabled him to bless the lives of those he interacted with. He will be dearly missed.
