It is with great sadness that we, the family of John Joseph Stewart “Joe”, announce his passing on the early evening of November 1st, 2023. He was surrounded by his loving family, like he always was. He left this world to be reunited with his Heavenly Family, including his beloved daughter Tanya.
Joe was all about family, he adored each and everyone. He was giving and caring and always helped anyone in need. He loved sitting in the rain and was an excellent pool player in his younger years. He loved singing, you could often hear him before you reached the door. He loved the classics but could also turn the simplest everyday phrases into a song. His love for music was infectious. Joe was a hard worker, owning and operating C&S Scrap Metal and Bottle Exchange for many years in New Glasgow. Joe was happiest spending time with his family, especially his 8 grandchildren he cherished so much and was so proud of.
Joe leaves behind his loving wife of 43 years Sharon Stewart (Green); his daughters Tasha Short (Scott); Tammy Stewart; son-in-law Mike Rector; also grieving their beloved Papa is Shalynn, Leeah, Gracie, Austin, Abel, Sylvia, Ella and Tanner. They will forever miss him.

He loved you all.
