Lifelong Hamilton County resident and farmer, Donald D. Stewart, passed away February 2nd at his winter home in Apache Junction, Arizona. Don was born on February 25th, 1943 to Leona Deakman and Harry Stewart. After his father passed away, Leona married Ammon W. Crystal and raised Don as his own from the age of 6.  Don graduated from Webster City High School and enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corp at the age of 17. He served 4 years in the Corp, two of those years on the U.S.S. Hancock Aircraft Carrier.  After serving his country he attended Webster City Junior College for two years. He married his wife of 53 years, Ann (Anthea) Hall on November 24th, 1966. They have two children, Joel and Cassandra.

Don farmed north east of Webster City with his father and
his brother Lynn Crystal until he retired in 2008. He wintered in Arizona and
enjoyed the Arizona sunshine and his “camping” friends.  He always had a funny story to tell and tended
to get into mischief with his buddies. He was known for his quick sense of
humor and friendly nature.  He enjoyed
maintaining the acreage, making homemade apple pies, running the combine on the
Walker Farms and settling in with a good book.

Don is survived by his wife, children Joel his wife Tracey
and Cassandra Adkins; Seven grandchildren, four step grandchildren and 9 great
grandchildren; brother Lynn and wife Mary Crystal; sister Shirley and husband
Harvey Hansen; and sister Jo Ann Crystal and husband Charlie Bennett.

He was proceeded in death by his parents, half-sister Elayne
Chester, and nephews Kelly McGuire and Steve Hansen.

A Celebration of Life will be held for Don in the spring.

    To the Stewart family, my heartfelt condolences for your loss. Please find comfort in the knowledge that soon God will wipe out every tear from our eyes, and “death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”(Rev. 21:3,4) May this promise give you comfort now and a real hope for the future. My deepest sympathies.

    Dear Cousin Annie, I’m so sorry to hear about Dons death in AZ, thanks to a communication from Toni. So grateful for that, but wish there were something I could do for you. I just think about both of your Happy Faces that have been on Facebook over the years that I so enjoyed seeing. I always regretted that our time in AZ just down the road did not coincide with your years in AZ. Mickey and I are remembering you each day. Love from us. Pat
