William "Bill" Walter Stewart

July 30, 1964 — April 5, 2024


William Walter Stewart, 59, of Concord, began his eternal life April 5, 2024.

Bill was born July 30, 1964, in Charlotte. He attended Northwest Cabarrus High School and played on the varsity football team. Bill had a knack for processes and quality control along with an artistic side which gave him the skills to work for JR Cole Industries for forty years in Charlotte as Director of Quality Assurance and his most recent promotion to Technical Sales Representative. Bill was with the company as it grew from just a handful of people to nearly 200. His dedication and creative “can-do” problem solver approach helped make JR Cole a respected name in the packaging industry. He developed the company’s quality and technical department and took great pride in his work.

Bill was an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed hunting, fishing, football and especially hiking on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Bill found happiness boating on Lake Tillery with his family and trying to sling his nephews off the tube. He also had a keen eye for spotting bald eagles when he cruised around the lake. He and his brother developed a love of smoking meat on the Big Green Egg and provided many delicious meals for their families. His daughter Peyton was his pride and joy, the apple of his eye. Most of all, Bill was a loving husband, dad, son, uncle, and brother.

Bill is survived by his wife, Stephanie Alexander Stewart of Concord; daughter, Peyton Stewart of Concord; mother, Nina Mae Hall Stewart of Troutman; father, Walter Stewart of Lumberton; brother, James (Stephanie) Stewart of Concord; brother, EJ (Betty) Trivette of San Antonio; sister, Nikki Stewart of Lumberton; brother, Michael Stewart of Lumberton; brother, Tim Clark of Denver; his West Highland Terriers, Phoebe and Luke and many beloved nieces, nephews, extended family, and friends.

Bill's Celebration of Life will be held at 3:00 pm, Saturday, April 13, 2024, at Multiply Church, The Chapel at Suite 15, 280 Concord Pkwy. South, Concord, NC officiated by Pastor Doug Witherup. The family will receive friends before the service from 2:00 pm – 2:45 pm.
