George E. Stewart

November 14, 1935 — November 18, 2016

George E. Stewart 81, of Hamilton passed away early Friday morning November 18, 2016 at the Eureka Nursing Center.
He was born November 14, 1935 in Carmen, Oklahoma the son of Clinton and Viola Solf Stewart. George attended Carmen High School and graduated with the Class of 1953.
He was joined in marriage to Ruby Stuck on May 23, 1955 near Aline, Oklahoma. One month later George and Ruby bought a farm north of Hamilton where they would begin their family and remain to this day.
George worked the farm for 50 years. His urge to always keep busy and provide for his family had him taking other employment throughout his life. He worked for Frank Gaines in the Burkett Oil Fields for nine years, the ABZ Welding shop for ten years and later worked with his son Mark at Diamond S Welding for ten years. George also operated a small engine repair service out of his home for decades.
He held a strong sense of community and served on the Fall River Watershed Board, the Hamilton School Board for thirteen years and the Hamilton Lions Club.
George will live on in the hearts of his wife of 61 years, Ruby of their home; daughters, Marsha Stewart of El Dorado and Deanna Stewart of Atchison; sons Jeff Stewart and his wife Brenda of Eureka and Mark Stewart and his wife Denise of Madison; sister, Joyce Burris and her husband Leo of San Marcus, California; brothers, Robert Stewart and his wife Rachael of Rolla and Bill Stewart of Independence, Missouri; ten grandchildren, fifteen great-grandchildren and countless extended family and dear friends. He was preceded in death by his parents and a sister, Wandora Schroeder.
