Brian Gregory Stewart, 48, from New Paris, Ohio, passed away on Saturday, February 9th, 2019.

Anyone and everyone who knew Brian knew his heart. He was genuine in all aspects. He loved deeply, and the inspiration that he has passed on to many of us is forever. Brian was always just a call or text away if needed. The last five years had been some of the hardest for Brian.

His battle with cancer, chemotherapy, and the damage that it did to his body, he fought it with all that he had.

Brian leaves to cherish his memory, his parents Allen and Becky Stewart, his brothers Allen Jr, and Brad Stewart, New Paris, Oh., his daughter Emma (Justin) Sowder, Riverside, Oh. He also leaves behind his wife/soulmate Tammy Roberts-Stewart, New Paris, Oh, step-sons Ronni McMillan, Eaton, Oh, and Travis (Jazmyne) McMillan Centerville, Ind., his niece and nephew Josh and Kira Stewart, his grandson Thurston Sowder, and 8 step-grandchildren who absolutely adored their Papaw. Several cousins, aunts, uncles, and many friends.

The family will host a Memorial Service at St Paul’s United Methodist Church 301 East Main St, New Paris, Ohio, from 5-7 pm Monday February 18th. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St Paul’s United Methodist Church in New Paris, Ohio, or to the American Cancer Society.
