Obituary for Gordon T. Stewart

Gordon Tait Stewart, age 85, of Milford passed away on Friday, May 15, 2015. He was born in New Haven to the late James and Janet Morrison Stewart on October 28, 1929. He served proudly in the U.S. Navy during the Korean War on the U.S.S. Beatty. Gordon worked in the trucking industry for 45 years before retiring from Baileys Express in Middletown. Upon retirement he continued to enjoy many of his passions including his Tuesday golf outings, watching the Yankees and Giants, and spending time with his cherished grandchildren. Gordon spent his final years totally devoted to his soul mate Catherine after she suffered a major stroke in 2009. He was a tower of strength and love for his whole family.
