James “Jimmy” Stewart

James “Jimmy” Stewart, 79 of Newberry Florida, passed away peacefully at home on July 14th. His kids are Jimbo, Jake, Jason, Roxanne, Joanne, Julie and Melissa. His sisters are Lucinda, Nancy and Melissa. James graduated from Florida State College. He served honorably during Vietnam War and was very proud of his time. In service in his spare time he loved golfing, playing solitaire, and spending time with his family. One of James most loved physical feature was his smile. His smile and laugh was contagious. He was our gentle giant.
One of James biggest accomplishments was being a father. His children would refer to his as a superhero. He would tell anyone who would listen about his kids/grandkids. Dad could make you laugh even when you didn’t want to. He had this amazing super power of always being right. There wasn’t an activity that his children participated in that he wasn’t front and center. He considered himself a very lucky man to have rekindled with the love of his life and spent the last of her years with her. He was our families’ anchor, the foundation that all our families are built on. We cherish the memories we having with our father and take peace knowing he is now with his mother and love of his life Elaine. WE are grateful to have had the time with our father as much as we did. This is a tremendous loss to our family,
Funeral Services and Honors will be on Sunday, July 18, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. in the Milam Funeral Home Chapel, 22405 W. Newberry Road Newberry, Florida, following with burial at Union Baptist Church Cemetery in Newberry, Florida.
