Charles H. Stewart, Jr.

 

Born:  October 16, 1943, in Louisville, KY to Charles H. Stewart, Sr. and Gertrude Howard Stewart.  He had twin sisters, Anne M. Stewart (who lives in Louisville, KY) and Betty Stewart Wright (now deceased).

 

Charles graduated from Bellarmine College, and the Universities of Louisville and Kentucky with Masters Degrees in Social Work and Sociology.  He has written numerous articles for professional journals as well as a book of spiritual poems. 

 

In 1970, he and his wife Julie were charter members of the Bluegrass Wheelman, a local bicycling club.  As an ancestry buff, Charles discovered some interesting facts about his family.  One of the most unusual involved distant relatives of his mother and father.  His 12th paternal great grandfather, James IV, King of Scotland, was killed in the Battle of Flodden Field by the army of King Henry VIII of England on 9/9/1513.  Henry’s army was commanded by Thomas Howard, 2nd Duke of Norfolk and Earl of Surrey, his 16th maternal great grandfather.  James led a charge and was slain within a spear length from Thomas.

 

Charles retired as a Warden from the Federal Bureau of Prisons and as an Administrator from the KY Department of Juvenile Justice.  He is survived by his wife of 57 years, Julie Walsh Stewart, 5 daughters (Kimberly Lemacks of Lexington, KY; Jill Roellig of Green Bay, WI; Kathleen Gragg of Canton, NC; Jeanie Gorrell of Lexington, KY; and Kerrie Watts of Land O’ Lakes, FL; 9 grandchildren, numerous nieces, nephews as well as their wonderful pets (Joey, a Standard Poodle and Teddy, a Toy Poodle).

 

Services will be conducted on Monday, 23, 2022, at 10:00-11:30 am with a Funeral Mass to follow at the Cathedral of Christ the King Catholic Church in Lexington, KY with burial at Calvary Cemetery in Louisville, KY.  Please visit www.milwardfuneral.com for more information.
