Scott Warren Stewart: May 8, 1954-April 1, 2018

Scott was born in Maywood, Calif., to Paul Hues Stewart and Barbara (Pool) Stewart. The couple eventually moved to Oak Harbor and owned and operated the iconic Dairy Valley Ice Cream Parlor.

Scott eventually came to Oak Harbor in 1979 to live near his family and began his career of 35-plus years with Safeway until his retirement in 2014.

During this time, Scott wore many hats and eventually became the night manager. Customers remember him as the friendly, professional manager who was always perfectly dressed and knew where everything was in the store.

Co-workers remember him as the guy who never had a bad thing to say about anyone. He was, however, known to say, “Grrrrr” on occasion, but always with his contagious smile.

Having been diagnosed late last summer, Scott fought a very private and courageous battle with cancer. He had absolute faith in his Lord to the end and joined Him on April 1, Easter Sunday. It was important to him that he return home to the house that he loved for his final chapter.

Scott wanted to thank his close friends and medical professionals for making this possible. WhidbeyHealth Hospice as well as Homewatch Caregivers and a constant stream of close friends, love, music and prayers brought support and comfort for his final days on earth.

A celebration of Scott’s life will take place at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, April 11, at his graveside at Maple Leaf Cemetery in Oak Harbor.

Memorial donations can be made in his name to the Faith Center, 1615 S. Glendale Ave., Glendale, CA 91205. Family and friends are encouraged to share memories and condolences at www.whidbey memorial.com
