Memories Timeline


  1. There is so little I can say that those who knew Scott don’t already know. Scott was my friend…except when he always beat me at golf! We didn’t get together as much as I think both of us wanted to and I regret that greatly. My friend is going to be missed greatly by a lot of people, and my name needs to be on that list.
    My condolences goes out to you during this difficult time.

    John Lochridge

  2. CandleImageScott will always be remembered as a strong negotiator and tactician. I am assuming God has a major case and needs a great lawyer, and a new golfing buddy!

  3. We will miss our brave and brilliant friend. Scott set a great example as a dedicated and loving husband, father, legal advocate and all around great guy.
    Meg and John Schulman

  4. Scott was one of the smartest, kindness, gentle, caring, man that I have ever known. I loved him like a brother. One story. Call me an I will share lots of others with you.

    Scott left Dallas coming to Canton on IS 20. He saw that he was low on gas and decided to wait until he got to the highway 64 turn off and fill up at the gas station there.
    He ran out of gas before he got to the station, but barely managed to coast to the station. THAT STATION WAS CLOSED. Jean, Sam, Cindy and I all love your family. Please tell his mother that I called.

  5. I met Mr. Stewart several years ago when he was looking to find a physician to help a family member with a pain problem. He told me he had searched all over the United States and was told nothing could be done to help the person. The man was dedicated to helping this person and would not give up. He had so much dedication to his family that my response was, “How could I not try to help someone in this man’s family.” We became friends when procedures were done in the surgery center to help this family member. I would take time out to find out what was happening in his life. When I was informed of his accident, I wanted to visit him in the hospital. His wishes were not to be seen by anyone at that time. Next bit of information I received is that he passed away. I am sad for the loss of such a fine husband, father, and friend. Rest In Peace Mr. Stewart.
