He was born May 9, 1935, in Thomson, Ga., the son of the late William Eli Stewart and Pauline Smith Stewart, both of Thomson, Ga. Junior earned his GED serving in the Air Force from 1952-1972. He retired after 20 years of service as a fireman for the United States Air Force. He traveled the world to areas including England, Spain, Korea, Mississippi, Massachusetts, New York, Louisiana and Georgia. Junior was a lifetime member of the VFW. After retirement, he settled in Mitchell, Ga., where he opened a country store at Five Points near Gibson, Mitchell and Warrenton. He became a substitute mail carrier and then a full-time mail carrier in Mitchell, where he retired from the Civil Service after many years. He enjoyed getting to know his postal customers. He also enjoyed good times with his friends. He loved fishing, cooking out, gardening, road trips, eating out, camping and grilling as well as being a mail carrier. He also loved building up his small store to a community store, barbecue and hangout at Five Points. He cooked on Wednesday nights for the community at his bar called “Junior’s Place.” Junior would want to be remembered as always loving life, his laughter and for having good times with his friends. He enjoyed life to the fullest and would not want anyone mourning his passing. He was a loving father to his three girls.
