LEXINGTON: Arvin G. Stewart passed away Tuesday, July 20 in his daughter’s home surrounded by his family. He was 85.
He was born October 13, 1935 in Johnsville to the late Kenneth and Velma (Kemp) Stewart and was graduated from Johnsville High School in 1953.
Arvin worked as a brick layer his whole life running Stewart Masonry for 45 years. By word of mouth and unwavering work ethic he ran a successful business with a reputation for excellence. He literally worked from sunup to sundown.
Known as “Stu” to family and friends, he enjoyed riding the mower on his 27 acre property and spending time outdoors.
He is survived by his children Mark (Deb) Stewart of Mansfield, Kathy (Brett) Wirick of Lexington, and Doug Stewart (Tonya) of Lexington; grandsons Chad (Natalie) Stewart, Kyle Stewart and Nick (Brook) Wirick; great grandchildren Sadie and Blake Stewart, Parker and Easton Wirick; and very special loving family Scott, Carla, Mason (Julia), Alec, Sam (Jessica) and Tyson Armstrong; nephews and nieces Dave (Judy) Stewart, Gary (Nancy) Stewart, Becky (Rick) Crowl and Bob (Robin) Stewart, Jan Gruber, John (Karen) Gruber, and Mary Martinez.
In addition to his parents, Stu was preceded in death by a brother and sister-in-law Dalton and Mary Jane Stewart.
The family will have a private celebration of life for immediate family members.
Donations in honor of Stu may be made to Southern Care Hospice, with humble thanks for his care. His family would also like to acknowledge the OhioHealth Mansfield Hospital 2nd floor nurses for their compassion and support.
