Obituary

Hartford

Richard “Dick” E. Stewart, 76, passed away on Thursday, Jan. 9, 2020, at Glens Falls Hospital.

Born on Oct. 4, 1943, in Cambridge, he was the son of the late Edward and Dorothy (Lundy) Stewart.

Dick graduated from Hartford Central School in 1962. He earned his welding certificate at Capital District Educational Opportunity Center EOC in Troy and went to work for welding at Sandy Hill. Dick’s pride and joy was working on the 3rd generation family farm, Twin-Brooks.

On June 10, 1967, Dick married the love of his life, Mary Lane at the Whitehall Methodist Church.

He was a lifelong member of the Hartford Methodist Church. Dick was a member of the Farm Bureau and the NYTPA.

In his younger years he enjoyed riding horses, went to gymkhanas, riding and racing snowmobiles and ice fishing. Dick enjoyed going to auctions and was an expert maple syrup maker. Every year Dick would attend the Washington County Fair where he would help clip the cows, watched his kids and grandkids show their cows and watch his son at the tractor pull. His favorite passion was deer hunting with the Mercure’s especially with his close friend, Ronnie. Dick loved watching his grandkids ball games and instructing them in the batting cage any chance he could. He enjoyed traveling whether it be chasing parts or his trips to Maine for seafood or to the Amish Country in Pennsylvania for Shady Maples; especially his two trips to Yellowstone and Custer’s Last Stand Park.

In addition to his parents, Dick was predeceased by his sister, Carol Tetmeyer; his son-in-law, Aaron VanNamee.

Left to cherish his memory include his wife of 52 years, Mary; his children, Edward Stewart and his wife, Krissy, Jaclyn Gebo and her husband, Michael; his grandchildren, Gavon, Drake, Reagan and Silver; his brother, Ken Stewart and his wife, Mary; his brother-in-law, Walter Tetmeyer; and several nieces, nephews and cousins.

Family and friends may call from 10am to 1pm on Saturday, Jan. 18, 2020, at M.B. Kilmer Funeral Home, 123 Main Street, Argyle, NY 12809.

A celebration of life will follow the calling hours at the Hartford Fire Department, 8118 NY-40, Hartford, NY 12832.

A Graveside Service will be conducted in the spring at Morningside Cemetery in Hartford.

Memorial donations can be made in Dick’s memory to the Argyle Emergency Squad Inc., 15 Sheridan Street, Argyle, NY 12809 or to Hartford Volunteer Fire Company, P.O. Box 121, Hartford, NY 12839.

Sorry to hear about your loss. I enjoyed the friendship I had with Dick. He taught me a lot about life and making maple syrup.

I was so shocked to learn of Dick's passing. I remember Dick coming up here to Hague with my cousin Dave Waters and hunting with my dad, Gordon Cameron, my uncle Wally Conlon, George Suprise, Uncle Miles Waters, and Ernie Jacobs and Dick McMore. We all looked forward to visiting with Dick, and he used to come up to visit my Aunt Kate and her family. She so looked forward to seeing him. Dick was always down to earth and was just like a part of the family for many years. My deepest sympathies go to Dick's family. May the Lord bless you and keep you as He brings you comfort and peace. God bless you all.

As youngsters growing up together, Dick and I were great friends and shared a lot, both in school and with outside activities. One of my best memories is the fact that he and I were a team on the baseball field. Dick was a catcher and I was a pitcher. We shared rides to Hudson falls for Little League for several years and continued this relationship through high school. His loss is a real shock and feels very personal.
My condolences and good wishes to Mary and the entire family.
Thanks,
Carl Klaiber
