so, you sit down at the bar and turn to Stew and he says "so what do you think,eh...eh...?" And then the fun begins; sports, local gossip and politics...no shortage of subjects. What a delight! We will miss you so much. Peggy & Michael Wolford

To The Gilman Family, my sympathy is extended to each of you. Stewart has such presence and was always in the middle of any party. he was talented and to be admired for always being creative.His personality was so charismatic and remembering his many nights at Harper's and Two Flights Up...He did have fun. He was a dear friend to me helping me with a divorce and then after I met Bill Benton, it was great to know they were long time friends. Great guys with the manners, charm and the drive for success.and Stewart was a fine attorney and was always a gentleman. When Bil asked me to get married, he later told me that he and Stewart took a drive to look at some land and he asked him what he thought about him getting married to me. He said Stewart told him He would be happy with me.He trusted Stewarts opinion, and we were happy. As Mr Gilman himself performed the wedding ceremony for us at our dear friend's Fannie Hillman's home, it was a grand time for all.Bill and I went off to Cozumel and Stewart and the guests continued the party at the Orlando Country Club. We all had so many dear friends that we had such histories with, and Stuart was a rainmaker at all times. He loved his family and barbara,he found a soulmate in you. He was at Bill's service at All Saint's and all of that groups that were friends forever enjoyed their visits about the good times I would like to think he and Bill are having a scotch and know they lived life well. As I live in Naples now, I will think of all of u on Sat.and hope u get some comfort in knowing that he lived his life well and to the fullest and he loved you all.. Love to all, Suzie Hiers Benton

LESLEY and family. In reading about your Dad and his adventures, I could not help but feel the verse below was for him.Daniel 12:13 But go your way till the end. And you shall rest and shall stand in your allotted place at the end of the days.”
God Bless you and your family. Rosie and Ken Bentley.

My most sincere sympathy to the family. I only was in "Big Stew's" company once or twice but I remember him as being very congenial and a most interesting conversationalist.
