Loyd George Stewart went home to be with our Lord and Savior on July 30, 2014. Jesus' words promise us: "Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in Me…and I go and prepare a place for you… that you may be where I am." - John 14:1-3 Loyd was born December 26, 1921, in Spring Garden, Cherokee County, Ala., the second of two sons of Ernest Lafette and Leah Gertrude (Westbook) Stewart. Loyd is survived by his loving wife of 70 years, Pauline (Tolleson) Stewart; daughter Paula (Billy) Ingle; son Eddie (Celia) Stewart and grandson William Sims Stewart. Loyd and family lived in Jacksonville, Ala., until moving to Vestavia Hills, Ala., in 1970. He retired as Third Division Construction Engineer, after 44 years with Alabama Highway Department. Loyd served in the Army during WWII, was a member of the Masonic Order and was a member of Mountaintop Community Church in Vestavia. Loyd enjoyed growing and tending to all kinds of trees and plants in his yard, traveling with Pauline and spending time with his very special joy in life, grandson, Will. There is much love, plus many precious memories, in the hearts of Loyd's family, as they miss him so much. Loyd's very special and loving care-givers these past years are: Bernie Perry Moore, Charlotte Thomas, Dorothy Arnold, Beatrice Connor, Kathy Fulford, Guanita Jackson and Erica Cooper. Special thanks also to New Beacon Hospice. Memorial service will be held at Mountaintop Church, Monday, August 4, 2014, at 11 a.m., Pastor Doug Ferguson officiating. Visitation at the church at 10 a.m. prior to the service. Loyd was cremated and his ashes will be placed in the family lot in Jacksonville City Cemetery at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family requests gifts be given to Mountaintop Church, 225 Centerview Drive, Vestavia 35126 in Loyd's memory.
