Dear Kathleen and family:

I remember spending a bit of time at your home in my late teenage years and Mr. Stewart being one of the nicest Dads of all my friends. He always treated me and the rest of our group of friends very nicely. I'm sorry to hear of his passing. My condolences to you all and anyone who loved him.

Dear Nancy and Family,
Our deepest condolences on the loss of your dear David. David was always smiling, jovial and full of fun. He must be telling jokes and bringing laughter to the angels in Heaven right now, just as he always did with the Greenbriar residents. May David rest in eternal peace in God's loving arms and may God bring comfort to his beloved wife, Nancy at this most difficult time. With love to all the Stewart family,
Louise and Robert Beck

I was able to go to the mass in Upper Saddle River for Dave and it was not shocking to see all the friends he hade come there. It was a beautiful service and Dave would have liked the young man who sang with such a great voice.
Dave and I would speak almost every day sometimes about things that happened in the past and laugh - like when we got caught in the second show doing the Four Seasons tribute - Dave and I had black shirts from the previous set we did together - we volunteered to move the furniture to the other side but could not return in time to change to white shirts for the number- so we went on with Mike DeCicco and Bill Shalk dressed in a different color, but no one noticed! We would go to the casino together and play the tables always having a good time win or lose. Many people do not know what a good man ,not just in his words ,he was ,but in his deeds! When I had a procedure in MSK in NYC Dave and Nancy offered to drive me home and they did !! I learned something from Dave and that is it doesn’t make a man less Maucho to say God Bless at the end of your conversation - so for all you added to my life Dave- “God Bless”!

Dear Nancy and family - Dave was such a wonderful person. He was indeed a marvelous member of the Glee Club along with Nancy.
He had a tremendous ability of always making others happy and to feel good about themselves. These are beautiful gifts that Dave possessed and that he shared so willingly with countless others. Warmest regards - Walter and Pamela Boright

Nancy and family,
Rick and I are so sorry to hear of Dave's passing. He lit up a room with his smile, booming voice and laugh. I first met Mr. Stewart when I worked at Foodtown in River Edge in the 70's. We always wanted everything to be perfect when he came to the store because we cared about his approval. Life made a circle and I reconnected with Dave through square dancing in my adult years. He was a great dancer who always brought laughter to a square. It was always clear how much he loved Nancy, his forever partner in a square and in life. We are keeping all of you in our thoughts and prayers. May memories touch your heart and bring you comfort.

Dear Nancy & Family,
Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Can’t think of Dave without remembering him with joy. Dave was always, the happiest, loudest and most fun dancer at Circle Eights. I’m sure he leaves a big hole in the lives of your family but must also leave a lifetime of happy memories. With deepest sympathy Janet & Walt Churchill

Stewart family, I heard the news today of your dads passing. Immediately, I was deeply saddened. I am so sorry for your loss. I often wondered how he and his family were doing. I had not seen or talked to him in close to thirty years since I had worked for him through high school and college in the late 80's and early 90's. I am forever grateful to him for the many life and business lessons he taught me that I still use today as I am still working in the food industry all these years later. I send my condolences to the family, I hope you are all well and safe through this difficult time .
Thank You and May God Bless You.
Rest In Peace Big D.
