Michael Robert Stewart, 63, of Elmira, New York, was born on December 19, 1959 and passed away on April 29, 2023.
Michael was predeceased by his parents, Joan and Al, and his sister Barbara. He is survived by his five brothers Guy, Alan, Jimmy, Johnny and Paul, his sister Jo Anne, and his two children Natalie and Spencer.
Michael loved to build things. He worked as an electrical engineer—primarily on large printing presses—for most of his life. He had many hobbies and interests during his lifetime, including wrestling, karate, camping, and live music. He loved the smell of coffee but didn’t like the taste. He had a playful spirit and still laughed uncontrollably at the Looney Tunes.
He was known by those whom he met as someone with endless optimism and positivity despite having had a difficult childhood and chronic health problems. His bright blue eyes, warm smile, and love of conversations made him someone you looked forward to seeing. He was a good man and a devoted father. He wished nothing more than that his family and friends find peace, and we hope that he has found peace as well.
