I was so saddened to hear today about Stuart. I remember when he was just a little chubby baby boy. Time passes so quickly and lives are lived and over before we’re ready. He became a wonderful man, husband and father, and more recently, adoring grandfather to two special little girls. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Only God can help us through times of great loss. I am so sorry. Aunt Carolyn

I did not know Mr. Stuart well but he was always exceptionally kind to me. I would meet him every year just before the Arkansas Wildlife Officers Association annual banquet to pick up a mower. He always put me to the front of the line, seemingly dropping whatever he had going on just to serve me… a non-paying customer.
