William Frederick Stewart (Bill), age 46, passed away on June 23, 2014 at his home in Huntsville, TX after a lengthy battle with cancer. He is survived by his devoted wife, Amy Sue Stewart, children William (Will) Wallace Stewart and Abbey Lynn Stewart, parents Wallace and Susan Stewart, sisters Lisa Taylor and Lori Brock, niece Sarah Brock and nephew James (Jay) Brock.

Bill was born in Pasadena, TX on October 31, 1967. He grew up in Pasadena but he lived in Huntsville, TX since 1994.

Bill received a Bachelor of Science degree from Sam Houston State University (SHSU) in 1996 and a Master of Science degree in Information Systems from A&M University (TAMU) in College Station in 2003. He also successfully completed the Police Academy at TAMU.

Before moving to Huntsville, he married his high school sweetheart, Amy Sue Taylor, on April 4, 1992 in Pasadena, Texas. They both graduated from SHSU at the same time, May 1996. They liked Huntsville so much they sought employment there.

Bill began his career with the Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ) in Huntsville, Texas in 1996. In 2008, he started working for Sam Houston State University in their Criminal Justice System's Police Research Department. While working full time he did volunteer work as a Deputy Sheriff in Huntsville.

Bill really was a family man. He not only loved his wife and his children deeply, but he loved his and his wife's extended families as well. He was very supportive of family members, especially when they were having difficult times.

He enjoyed attending and participating in family activities. He always wanted to be at all family gatherings - special occasions, celebrations, and reunions - and he encouraged others to participate.

Bill's love of the family demonstrates his love for mankind. But most important for him was his love for the Lord.

Bill always had good health until he was diagnosed with cancer in 2012. He went through months of chemo and radiation at MD Anderson Hospital (MDA) and nothing seemed to stop the growth. He suffered greatly.

Through all of this his attitude was positive and he tried to be optimistic for his family. He drew on his faith in the Lord and the strength of his character. Bill was proud to be a Texan and he had a reputation that will live long in the memories of his family and friends. He was an inspiration to all.

Services were held in Huntsville, Texas. Memorial thoughts may be shared with the family at www.shmfh.com.
