Robert Leslie Stewart, Jr.
September 14, 1938 ~ May 25, 2007

MONTEREY, California Robert Leslie Stewart, Jr., age 68, went home to be with our Lord on May 25, 2007. Memorial Services were held at Calvary Chapel on Monday, May 28, 2007. Bob and wife Carolyn have been active in various ministries since coming to the Peninsula in 1996, welcoming friends and family to their home. Born in Bisbee, Arizona on September 14, 1938, Bob spent much of his life growing up in El Paso, Texas. Bob married Pat Long in 1958. The family eventually moved to the Bay Area, where they settled in Pleasanton with children Rick, Terry and Susan. In 1981, Bob married Carolyn and took on a fatherly role with Louann, Lori, and Lezlie. He is loved and respected by his brother Rick and sister, Shirley, both living in the Washington D.C. area. After working 28 years for the Lawrence and Berkeley Laboratories, Bob retired as Plant Manager and eventually moved to Monterey where he and Carolyn spent many happy and fulfilled years. Both have played an important role in the development of "The Most Excellent Way" and "The Bridge" ministries, formed to help thru Jesus Christ, restore the lives of individuals and families who have dealt with addiction. Bob found his "purpose" in life thru assisting and encouraging others.
Bob leaves a legacy for many who knew him and the contribution of his life will be a benefit to many who did not know him. A loving husband and friend . . . his family and those whose lives he touched are blessed to know where he has gone.
In lieu of any gifts or flowers that might be presented, the family has asked that friends would consider The Bridge for their symbol of appreciation. The Bridge (P.O. Box 2044, Seaside, CA 93955) recovery program is an active non-profit ministry focused on the restoration of men and their families from addiction.To sign Robert's guest book please visit www.thepaulmortuary.com
