“Sad is the parting, no one can tell: So sudden on earth the sorrow fell,
The blow was hard, the shock severe; To part with one we love so dear.
Dearer still, as days depart; Our loved one’s memory will forever live within our hearts!”
On Tuesday, June 6, 1967, Aaron Slyvester Stewart, Sr. was born to Lois Stewart Banks and the late Elmer ‘Bob Jack’ Hicks.
Aaron was educated in the Northampton County Public School System. As life progressed, he became gainfully employed, as a delivery driver, with Converters Unlimited of Kinston, North Carolina - a job he held for over 15 years, kindling long lasting friendships and most importantly, developing an unbreakable extended family.
Affectionately known as ‘Dirty’ by his East Coast Dragons family, Aaron enjoyed riding motorcycles, shooting the jive and eating at the Waffe House, with his sidekick, ‘Duely’. He loved his family with all his heart and spending quality time with them brought him great joy. Being in the natural environment was one of his favorite pastimes. He could often be found cruising on his boat, fishing and hunting.
Sunset and evening star, And one clear call for me! And may there be no moaning of the bar, When I put out to sea, But such a tide as moving seems asleep, Too full for sound and foam, When that which drew from out the boundless deep Turns again home. Twilight and evening bell, And after that the dark! And may there be no sadness of farewell, When I embark; For tho’ from out our bourne of Time and Place the flood may bear me far, I hope to see my Pilot face to face When I have crost the bar. On Friday, February 19, 2021, our dear loved one quietly crossed the bar and went home to be with the Lord. He now rejoins with his father, Elmer and many other relatives and friends, who have gone on before him.
Those we love remain with us, for love itself lives on, and cherished memories never fade because a loved one’s gone. Those we love can never be more than a thought apart. For as long as there is memory, Aaron will live on in our hearts. A gift for such a little while, the loss just seems so wrong. He should not have left before us, It’s with loved one where he belongs.” Treasured memories of pure love and affection will remain with: his mother, Lois S. Banks of Gaston, North Carolina; caretaker and ex-wife, Qreatha Stewart Jones; sons, Antione Ingram, Sr. (Cindy) Raleigh, North Carolina, Corey Faulcon of New York, Aaron S. Stewart Jr. and Rico S.
