Earl Lee Stewart, 62, Heltonville

He was a veteran of the U.S. Army and had retired from Manchester Tank in Bedford with 35 years of service. He was a member of New Paynetown Pentecostal Church. He loved spending time with his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren; deer hunting; spending time working on the farm; and hanging out with the guys he worked with, who were like family to him. His favorite time was family pizza night on Saturdays.

He was preceded in death by his father; mother; and birth brothers, James Haynes, Harold Hall, and Bobby Harris.
