Stewart had such an unique personality, you never knew what he was going to say, but was sure you were going to get a quality question or answer. I admired his passion for Astronomy and helping people in all walks of life. It was an honor to call him my friend and to work with him throughout the years at AAI. He will be sorely missed and remembered by all.
So many memories of Stewart at AAI and he always had a good and tough question for the speakers. We reunited with a mutual amateur astronomer recently who I found out the sad news. I wish I knew the service was this morning. RIP Stewart
During my years as editor of the Asterism newsletter, Stewart could always be depended on to supply a thoughtful and substantive article of topical interest. His distinctive voice was always recognizable and his pertinent questions frequently made useful contributions to monthly webinars sponsored by the Night Sky Network. It was a real pleasure to work with Stewart. His passing is a loss to us all.
I always appreciated Stewart's insightful and interesting submissions for the Amateur Astronomers, Inc (AAI) newsletter, The Asterism. His regular column was called Stewart's Skybox. He took his responsibilities as a writer seriously, but what also came across was the great enjoyment he had for astronomy. Stewart was a unique person and will always be remembered fondly.
I will miss Stewart in our monthly astronomy club meetings. He could always be depended upon to ask penetrating questions of our professional astronomer speakers or come up with the answers to almost any astronomical question in our discussions...
I have very fond memories of my college days with Stewart, a classmate of mine for many of my classes at Brookdale Community College. I never forgot him and I never will, even though it is now 36 years later. He will always be the college classmate I remember the most. My deepest condolences to his family.
