September 28, 1951 - February 24, 2014
Frank Allen Stewart, 62, of New Castle, went to meet his Jesus, Monday, February 24, 2014 unexpectedly at his home following a long battle with Myasthenia Gravis. He was born September 28, 1951 in New Castle, a son of the late Jack B. and Ruth (Colyer) Stewart. Frank was 1970 graduate of New Castle Chrysler High School and had also attended Ivy Tech. He was employed at Chrysler Corporation in Kokomo where he was a member of the United Auto Workers Local 1116. Frank was a loyal and devoted member of the Cross Road Church where he was affectionately known as Brother Mustard Seed. He dearly loved his church family. Frank had a passion for animals. He fed squirrels and any stray animal that happened by and was known for his many bird feeders which enabled him to enjoy the many species of birds that came by to feed. He enjoyed fishing, gardening, cooking, collecting antiques, and was a die hard NASCAR fan and was an avid Dale Earnhardt, Jr. fan as well. Frank was happiest when he was able to give to someone less fortunate. Frank was a family man who enjoyed spending time with his family and he loved and adored his granddaughters.
