Obituary for Frederick Joseph Stewart

Frederick Joseph Stewart, 91, passed into his Lord’s loving arms on Saturday, May 11, 2019, surrounded by his children and grandchildren. He was a man of strong faith and a deep love for his family.
He was born in Rome, New York, on April 6, 1928 to Pauline Galluccio and Anthony Stewart (DelGuidice) and was fifth born of seven children.
Fred married his high school sweetheart Rafael Nancy Sparace on April 4, 1946 who was the love of his life. They recently celebrated 73 years of marriage.
Fred began his postal career in October of 1970 at Riverside, California as a distribution clerk. Fred transferred to Loma Linda as a carrier in March of 1973. His thirty years of service began at Griffith Air force Base. He transferred to Norton Air Force Base in 1957 until 1962. The next eight years were served at the Corona Naval Ordinance Lab. Fred ran his route like clockwork, his people could almost set their watches by him, and inside the office they said he was always good for a laugh. He retired in 1983 and was honored by the United States Postal Service for his thirty years of service to the government of the United States.
Fred is survived by his loving wife Rafael and their daughters Donna (David) of McMinnville and Rebecca (George) of Riverside, California; seven grandchildren, Karen, David, Jenny (Jack), Rachel, Sarah, Hannah (Josh) and Michael; twenty-one great grandchildren, Josh (Alisha), Steven, Nikki, Garner, Monica, Alli, Kami, Tessa, Jack Jr., Ava, Dallas, Rebekah (Max), Gabriela, Cyric, McKenzie, Atlas, Jeremiah, Kaia, Isaac, Cody, and Isabella; three great great grandchildren, Ella, Mia, and Athena.
Fred was preceded in death by his parents Pauline and Anthony, an infant son Anthony at birth and an infant great granddaughter Kayla; his sisters Carm and Janet, and brothers Tom, James, Dick, and Eugene.
