John "Rob" Stewart Jr.

June 27, 1953 — June 9, 2023


John Robert Stewart, Jr., known by his family and friends as Rob, went home to be with his Lord and Savior early in the morning on Friday, June 9, 2023. He was surrounded by the love of his wife and children. He was 69, turning 70 on June 27th.

Rob was the loving husband of Sandra (Sandy) Araujo Stewart. The couple shared 9 wonderful years of married life together, having celebrated their wedding anniversary this past February 23, 2023.

Born in Abington, PA he was the son of the late John Robert and Diana (Drueding) Stewart. After attending technical school in the 1980s he began working as a Unix system administrator and maintained this career path until his retirement in May of 2021.
Rob was an avid and talented musician and songwriter. He was primarily a bassist and vocalist however, he was able to play any instrument placed in his hands. He played in various bands and groups throughout his years.

Rob had many hobbies, including beer and wine making, disc golfing, motorcycling, amateur radio operations, and competitive long distance boomerang throwing. Rob enjoyed building his own boomerangs and would take any opportunity to teach anyone how to throw and then hand them a boomerang to keep, even if it was one of his personal favorites. He enjoyed making connections all over the world on his ham radio, motorcycling with his younger children, traveling, making music with his wife, recording music and spending time with his family.

He and his wife attended Calvary Church in Souderton and had been involved on the worship team for several years.
