Robert James (Bob) Stewart Obituary
Robert (Bob) James Stewart

Robert (Bob) James Stewart, 77, of Port Townsend, WA, lost his battle with Parkinson's disease at Olympic Medical Center in Port Angeles on Sunday, July 28, with family by his side.

Bob was born in Seattle on April 17, 1936, at Swedish Hospital to George and Hazel Stewart. He is survived by his wife of 37 years, Jan Stewart; three children: Glenn Stewart, Laurie Jaeger and Cheryl Claeys; his sister, Maude Gunn of Wenatchee, WA; and ten grandchildren.

Bob served as a naval aviator in the U.S. Marine Corps and joined United Airlines in 1964, where he retired as a 747 Captain in April 1996. He was a patron of the Seattle Fifth Avenue, an avid golfer, and a member of ANA (Association of Naval Aviation) Olympic Squadron and the Roche Harbor Yacht Club, where he pursued his passion for boating by planning, charting and leading numerous adventures in the Northwest waters, including his dream trip through the Inside Passage to Alaska in 1997.

At Bob's request, no services will be held, but the family would appreciate sharing of any memories or sentiments via his online guestbook at In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Port Townsend Aero Museum, PO Box 101, Chimacum, WA 98325.
