Donald L. Stewart, age 77, of Westerville, Ohio was called home to be with the Lord on July 10, 2017 at St. Ann’s hospital.  Don was born on August 8, 1939 in Columbus, Ohio to the late Arthur Stewart and Beatrice Bussey Stewart.  Don remained close with and is survived by his ex-wife, Barbara Stewart in addition to his three daughters; Shana Ross, Kecia Annis and Keali Stewart.  He is also survived by his grandchildren; Lindzy Annis, Joshua Annis, Jamie Annis and Kennedi Rowlands, siblings; Jimmy, Buddy, Willie, Bobby and Sandy and his extensive AA family.  He was preceded in death by his parents; Arthur Stewart and Bob and Bea Allen, his siblings; Linda and John, his daughter, Alexis Stewart and his granddaughter, Stephanie Annis.  Don attended Vineyard Church of Columbus and was heavily involved with Alcoholics Anonymous.  His proudest achievements in life were, first and foremost, his three daughters, followed by his grandchildren.  He also would have celebrated 28 years of sobriety this coming October.  Don was a very witty person with great “one-liners”, loved to take the time to talk with people and truly loved both his immediate family and his AA family.  His family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of the friends in AA who meant so much to Don:  you truly were his second family.  Thanksgiving was Don’s favorite time of year and to honor him, the family will be hosting a commemorative gathering with a time of sharing on Tuesday, November 21st at the Rodman-Snyder Memorial Center located at 5464 N. High St., Columbus OH from 1:00-4:00 pm.

  • Karen Albertson says:

    I have such fond memories of Barb and Don in a past season of our lives. We had many fun times cooking together during the blizzard and wondering which car was going to make it down the hill. Don was always so handsome and full of life. I will never forget his laugh and also at times, his very serious side. Rest in peace, my old friend. My heart goes out to Barb, family and the girls.

  • John & Leslie Spoff says:

    To all family and friends: We first got to know Don through the Ohio National Guard, back around the ’68 – ’69 time frame (about the time his second daughter was born). An interesting guy & loyal friend, he was apparently one of those guys who could collect friends like some people do coins. He was was especially able to apply his talents and abilities to work with the younger soldier. Over the years, and after the Guard, he’d stop by on occasion or I’d run into him around town. And, one day…one day, he’s gone. Where did the years go? Where does life go? A sad day, this one.

  • Pam Hayslip says:

    Don was my uncle and my moms oldest brother. I am going to miss him sooooo much. My greatest memories are the times we spent together at grandma and grandpa Allen’s place. You were always such a wonderful uncle. I love and miss you lots. Rest In Peace ✝️ Till we meet again I’ll keep you in my heart always😇
