He loved fishing with his brother-in-law Gary Longerbone and his son Eric.  Stew enjoyed NASCAR races with Terry Anderson, Gary Longerbone, John Wesen and Karter Anderson.  Stew and Lora loved their vacations in Puerto Vallarta for 29 years where they made and kept lifelong friends.  He enjoyed summers at his lake place in Millie Lacs Island Resort in Isanti, MN where he would sit on the deck and yell at the golf carts to slow down.  Stew enjoyed Sundays after church at the Shortstop in Fridley and every Wednesday at Adagios with friends.
