Obituary of Harold Stewart

Harold Glenn Stewart, 87, passed away on Thursday, August 3, 2017 in LaBelle, FL. Glenn was born on September 18, 1929 in Ft Myers, FL to Herbert R. and Gladys L. Stewart. He was preceded in death by his parents; two brothers, Wilton "Bill" Stewart and Gerald Stewart; by his wives, Mary E. Stewart and Edna Y. Stewart, and a son, Michael S. Stewart.

He is survived by a daughter, Mary Whitley, granddaughter, Amanda Whitley, and great-granddaughter, Cherokee Whitley of Wichita Falls, TX; a sister Inez S. Adkins of Palm Beach Gardens, FL; a step-son Gene Yarbrough of Sacramento, CA; six nieces; five nephews, and numerous other cousins and friends.

Glenn graduated from LaBelle High School in 1948 and lived a full and rewarding life. He was a flight line engineer, an instructor (training over 50 pilots, many who later became airline pilots), and went into the Air Force from March 1951 to November 1952. As a pilot, he delivered airplanes to South America, Argentina, and Mexico, and flew senators and governors throughout Florida. After moving to Tennessee in 1972, he dabbled in ranching, owned a dry cleaning business, managed two theaters, and did some construction work. Upon returning to Florida in 1988, he managed an orange grove and became a security guard. Then in 2012, he decided to venture into a new career called retirement.

Glenn's other passions were reading, dreaming about taking a sailboat ride to Puerto Rico, talking about his flying days, watching movies, and just taking it easy.

A Celebration of Life memorial service will be held from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 12, 2017 at The Grace Building at Caloosa Baptist Church, 550 West Hickpoochee Av., LaBelle, Florida with Ray Harn officiating.
