Stewart Tobias was one of five children born to Rogene Rose Bauchan. Stewart was the third born son. Mike being the oldest, Jack was the second then Stewart. Rogene was remarried and gave birth to two daughters, Heidi than Kathy. With the exception of Mike. All Rogene's children were born in Detroit Michigan. All four of the children born in Detroit later settled in Monroe, MI. This is where Stewart attended the Monroe Public Schools and joined the Monroe Jr High football team. He loved playing football. Just not the idea of mom making his uniform so white. It looked like he never played. Lol. His High School years he ventured through a soybean field to the local airport. This is where he found his dream of wanting to be a pilot. Joe the owner had him do odd jobs and in return he learned alot about planes. Joe took him flying on several occasions. I remember mom telling me to fetch him for dinner and I ended up in a plane with them. Stewart was flying the plane over Lake Erie. Even though very cool and very proud to have flown with him at 8 or 9 years old. Very grounded when mom found out. Stewart always was pretty much a loner and always did what he wanted. He made a few trips south but always came back to his family until one day he told me that he had to return south. I've always talked and shared many times, situations, and memories with him. I told him I would miss him and to always stay close. He promised he would. For the most part he has. He confided in me that there was a very special girl that he knew he had to be there for. He confided in me that this little girl needed him and he needed her. It was much later I met her. Jessica, Stewart went to stay south for you. You captured his heart and he wasn't going to let you go. He left wearing his white painters pants and hitched rides to get back. My father gave him a ride as far as Ohio. He was on his own after that. I will always treasure the memories of my brother. He is sadly missed and loved.
