George L. Stewart Jr., 80, of Oak Park, died on April 8, 2019. Born on Jan. 30, 1939 to George and Wilma Stewart, he was a CPA and past treasurer of the St. Giles Family Mass community. A U.S. Army veteran, he was a mentor and friend to many. He played piano and loved music. His family will remember him as quiet, generous, and funny and misses him deeply. 

George Stewart was the father of Julia Stewart (Milton), Patrick Stewart (Fouzia), and Michael Stewart (Molly); grandfather of Sullivan, Bailey, Victoria, Lauren and Malcolm; brother of Alice, Wilma, and Lois; and sister-in-law of Sue Sullivan. He was preceded in death by his loving wife, Kathleen Sullivan-Stewart, who was the "main ingredient" of his life.

Visitation will be held on Friday, April 12, from 3 to 8 p.m. at Drechsler, Brown and Williams Funeral Home in Oak Park. A funeral Mass will be celebrated at noon on Saturday, April 13, at St. Giles Church in Oak Park.

I observed George (Mr. Stewart to me) as a wonderful husband, father and community member. I grew to know him through his children and came to respect him as a kind and generous man. He and his lovely wife Kathleen raised wonderful children that I am happy to call dear friends. While George and Kathleen are together now, we will all greatly miss them..
