Biografía

We want to extend our gratitude to all the relatives and friends who have come today to honor Sylvester Stewart, a person we have all come to love and cherish for many years. All of us have known him in a variety of roles: father, husband, uncle, cousin, grandpa, and great friend. We have been privileged to know him as Dad/Papa.

Sylvester E. Stewart affectionately known as “Sonna / Bigie” was the first of nine children born to Percival Stewart and Hilrett Hall Stewart on October 1, 1932 in Lewis Store, St. Mary, Jamaica West Indies. He met and married Inez Stewart on June 14, 1959 and proceeded to start his own family.

He migrated to the United States in 1982 and lived in Bronx, NY until 2008. He worked as a truck driver for most of his life and retired in 2006. He later moved to Apopka, Florida with his wife, Inez.

His love for driving at an early age led him to a chauffeur job and later as a truck driver. This led him to travel around the entire country of Jamaica and he reveled at his knowledge of the country which came from the driving and constantly meeting new people.

Sylvester was a social buttercup. He had a lively personality and was the life of any party. His love for the ladies was legendary and he loved to dance. He also learned that a cold drink on a hot day is one of life’s greatest pleasures. Truth is, he loved a cold drink on almost any day or night.

Sylvester loved politics. He would introduce any political topic in a conversation if it is something that bothered him and became so animated while discussing the topic. He was also a no-nonsense person. He would say he has a clean heart because he says what he means and didn’t care how and if it offended you.

Sylvester passed away at the age of 87 on Tuesday, December 17, 2019. He is survived by his three children: Velma, Charmaine (Robert) and Donnovan (Diana); siblings: Lurline Maria Stewart Crawford (Haretly), Eunice Stewart Grandison (Cecil) and Eric Stewart (Glenis); grandchildren: Camilla, Peter, Whitney, Cheyney, Sasha, Jovan, Threavia; great-grandchildren: Jaden and Cameron.

He was preceded in death by his parents (Percival Stewart and Hilrett Hall Stewart); wife (Inez); siblings: (Ferdinand Stewart (Adlet), Esther May Stewart (Evan), Linda Addassia Stewart, Herma Stewart, Alberta Stewart) and grandson, Nicholas Mason.

Thank you, Dad/Papa, for being a part of our lives. We cherish you and are going to miss you.
