Major Stewart had a big influence on my life! I remember I as 15 yrs old and was helping clean up the church kitchen with my best friend then and now Dana Bain and he ask if we would like to work at Camp MoKan so we said yes and that was over 40 yrs ago. Some of those people I met there are still a big part of my life now. Without him, I would of never had that opportunity. RIP my dear friend. Love you

When I was a student at Wheaton College, he graciously provided transportation to and from Northern Illinois Youth Band rehearsals. This was a rare treat, as most trips were filled with laughter and a great many puns. - Wendy Gorton Hill
