April 2013 Living Legend

Preston H. Stewart

Preston H. Stewart, 74, husband of the late Carrie E. Stewart served in the United States Army for 2 years before leaving service to help his mom with their family by finding a job. He is the father of 2, grandfather of 2 and great-grandfather of 4 and adopted grandfather by many. During his wife’s illness, he opted out for early retirement to be able to take care of her at home until her passing in 2005. He retired from Bethlehem Steel Sparrows Point in 2001 after 34 years of employment. 

Through the years he has been a major support to his children and his grandchildren, raising one granddaughter as his own.  At times when he would be laid off in the past, he would drive cabs and do odd jobs to maintain the household.  He lives the motto: Love God, family and others.

His hobbies include reading, fishing, cooking, walking, grilling and landscaping.  He is known in his neighborhood as the man with the pretty yard.  He is an active member of The Parklane Baptist Church where he is a Trustee and a member of the Culinary Committee. If there is a repast, banquet or any other Culinary function you will find him in the kitchen non-stop in his chef’s hat and apron.

He is a Living Legend not only because of what he has done and continues to do for the family and his friends, but also by instilling in us his love for Christ.

Congratulate him below!
