SHARE Obituary: Samuel Airth Stewart

Our much loved Samuel Airth Stewart passed away July 19, 2000 in his home from cancer.

Sam was born Feb. 24, 1981 in Salt Lake City, Utah, to Michael Stewart and Deborah Stewart-Graf.

He was raised in the Salt Lake and Sandy areas and was a 1999 graduate of Alta High School. Sam is an Elder in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Sam loved the outdoors, playing basketball, camping, fishing, hiking, video games, toy collecting, riding motorcycles, movies, music and being with his friends. He has wonderful friends who loved and supported him through his trials. Sam was very intelligent and had a great sense of humor. He was industrious and hard working. His favorite job was working at Target. He had a strong testimony of Jesus Christ and looked forward to serving his mission in the next life. Sam was brave, never complaining, always hopeful, and totally committed to his Heavenly Father through the cancer treatments and surgeries he endured the last year. The cancer took away his bodily strength but didn't touch his spirit. Sam was an example to all those around him and influenced many lives because of it. He was a great brother, son, grandson, and friend to all of us and we will miss him dearly. We look forward to being reunited with him.

Sam is survived by his parents, stepfather Frank Graf, brothers Seth, Patrick, John, and sister Julia of Sandy, Utah; grandparents Ken and Carol Engle of Scotsdale, AZ, Don and Peggie Singleton of Tempe, AZ, Arnie and Lila Stewart of Gilby, ND, Frank and Sharon Graf of Richland, Washington; aunts Diana (Steve) Aldana, Diane (Wayne) French; uncles Daniel Stewart, Brad (Gina) Stewart.

Funeral service will be held at the Crescent 21st Ward 11750 S 2000 E at 12 noon on Saturday, July 22nd. Burial at Larkin Sunset Gardens Cemetery/Mortuary, 10600 S 1700 E. Following the funeral, family and friends will gather at the ward house.

Our family wishes to express our gratitude to our extended family and friends who prayed for us, fed us, and provided so much support, so we could get the best medical treatment for Sam.
