     Stewart was born in Washington Township, Michigan on October 29, 1944, the son of Durwood Benjamin and Helen Emmaretta (Johnson) Iler. Stewart graduated from Fulton High School with the class of 1962.  On September 1, 2006, Stewart married Margaret Marie Egan in Ithaca, Michigan. They were blessed with sixteen years of marriage.

     Stewart retired from General Motors in August of 2000 after thirty-six years.  After retirement, he enjoyed driving limousine and a school bus for Fulton Schools.  He enjoyed bowling, fishing, attending car shows, monster truck races, and spending time with his grandchildren.  He loved traveling; one of his favorite trips was with Margie out west visiting the Grand Canyon and Monument Valley.  Stewart had a great sense of humor.  He could strike up a conversation with anyone and would tell complete strangers jokes that made them laugh.
