George F. Stewart, 92, of Frankfort, died December 9, 2018 at Wesley Manor, Frankfort, Ind.  He was born September 28, 1926 in Clinton County, Ind. to George A. & Estella B.

He was employed as a farmer, and was a bus driver for the Rossville Schools for 15 years, and then retired from the Clinton County Highway Garage in 1992.  George was beloved by many for his kindness, his merry twinkle and his sense of humor.  Many remarked upon his sweet smile and the genuine warmth behind it.  He enjoyed fishing with companions throughout life and taught his children to fish.

    It’s been many years since I last saw George. Besides being a good neighbor he drove the school bus I rode, hired my sister and me to cut gypsum weeds out of a bean field one summer and drove me to the hospital the night my dad died. May you be consoled with your memories of a life well lived.

    George and Ilene were our neighbors as we were growing up I work for him on the farm for 25 cents / hour. He was a special friend to my folks. A very giving man. He will be a light in heaven.

    My mother Regina (Jeannie) Amthor Boruta spoke highly of her cousin George and had fond memories of him and there get together visits in their younger years on visits from Michigan with her mom Isabelle Stewart Amthor. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

    Dear Stewart Family, we are so sorry to hear of George’s passing. We lived down the road from him for many years. My brothers worked for him in their younger years. He was a very kind and caring man. He took all of us kids a ride on his snowmobile. When we were snowed in he brought food with that snowmobile, or simply to just check on us. When passing by the house, he would wave and smile. That was more than forty years ago, but his kindness still comes to mind. He will be missed by all who had the pleasure of meeting him. Prayers for the family. Debbie Barnes Baker
