Edward Stewart Obituary

Edward Allie Stewart passed away on March 12,2024 at the age of 90 years old.

Ed was born on January 5,1934 to Buena Stallings and Eugene Stewart in Seminole, Oklahoma. His family left Seminole during the dust bowl era. The Stewart family moved with the work in the Oil & Gas industry working as machinists and welders. They traveled and lived across the United States from Oklahoma, Louisiana, Kansas, Texas, New Mexico, Wyoming, Colorado and California.

He had so many adventures as a kid with his brother Alvin. Alvin always had a plan for fun and Ed was his sidekick. I'm sure that they might have been the reason their redheaded mom's hair turned white at an early age. They had many good times and many hard times too.

He married Alice Arlean Clark in Vernal, Utah on April 8, 1955. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple April 8, 1993. Ed and Arlean moved to Farmington, New Mexico then San Diego, California to work for Convair Aviation as a machinist. What an adventure that was for Arlean, with her baby in tow she had never been outside of the Uintah Basin.

They moved back to Vernal a short time later where Jeannie, Joyce and Brad Lee were born. Ed worked for 20 years for Peyton Machine Shop in Vernal. When that business sold Ed, Arlean and Kenny started Stewart Machine & Welding in 1973 with Jeannie, Joyce and Brad as support staff. It truly was a family affair. At that time Kenny was still in High School he trained to be a machinist and welder.

Over the years Ed provide the opportunity for many young men to learn the trade of Machinist and Welder. Ed loved to help other people, especially young men who needed a chance. Brad Lee, Brad Jackson, Stan and Joyce joined the workforce at Stewart Machine & Welding. Many of his grandson's had their first job at Stewart Machine.
Ed designed and manufactured many different tools over the years. He had a great work ethic and would tell you if you have a problem, get to work and your problems will seem a lot smaller. He truly loved people, he loved his customers, he loved his work and never held a grudge. Stewart Machine & Welding was in business for over 43 years.

Ed loved Vernal, he told us that it was a paradise. So much public lands to hunt and fish.
And did he ever hunt and fish! He was one of the founding members of the Vernal Rod & Gun club. He was an avid archery hunter, making his own recurve bows and all his arrows. He hunted deer, mountain lion and bobcat with his hounds and bow.
He loved bird hunting, fishing, and being out with his friends, his son's and son in laws and his grandson's.

He played softball for many years with Maeser 2nd Ward team as a pitcher.
Later in life he truly loved his yearly fishing trips to Alaska with friends, Dave King, Walt Bowden, Dale Brady and Garth Batty. They had so much fun, it was the highlight of his year.

Ed loved kids; he thought his grandchildren were the best. Ed was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He served in scouting and as an elder's quorum teacher, he loved those callings. Arlean supported Ed in every venture, every hunt, everything he did in his life. She stood behind him or beside him every step of the way. His family will always remember that he loved each of us and valued us and in later years depended on us. Our last gift to him was to show our love by caring for him in his final years.

Ed left an impression on so may lives. He was loved and respected for his willingness to help others. He made this world a better place.

He is survived by his children, Kenneth Stewart (Julie); Joyce Jackson; (Brad) Jeannie Greene (Stan); Helen Stewart. 11 Grandchildren, 31 Great Grandchildren. A sister, Patricia Outlaw (Jerry) of Killean, TX; and Sally Garfield of Casper, WY.

He was preceded in death by his sweetheart Alice Arlean Stewart; his son Brad Lee Stewart; his parents Eugene and Buena Stallings Stewart; granddaughter Paige Erin Jackson; Kinley Stewart; Gracie May Stewart; brothers Alvin Stewart, Jimmy Stewart, Leroy Stewart, and his sister, Joan Hobbs
