STEWART, DONALD  
DONALD STEWART Donald G. Stewart passed away peacefully the night of May 26, 2016, in his sleep, at the Veteran's Home in Boulder City. Don was born Dec. 10, 1925, in Logandale, and was a longtime resident of Las Vegas thereafter. He proudly served his country in the U.S. Marine Corps during World War II. Don was extremely proud of his heritage as the great-grandson of Helen J. Stewart, often referred to as the first Lady of Las Vegas. Don's great-grandmother, Helen J. Stewart, settled the Las Vegas valley with her husband, Archibald, in 1882 to take control of the Las Vegas Ranch. Archibald was killed in a gunfight at the Kyle ranch in July 1884 and after a few years, Helen J. sold all but four acres of the ranch to William Clark in 1902. The property acquired by Mr. Clark was then auctioned off as homestead property in 1905 and the city of Las Vegas was born. For close to 30 years, Don worked as a civil service employee for Nellis Air Force Base, rising to the position of water superintendent prior to his early retirement in his mid-40's, enabled by the sale of property holdings. For the remainder of his life, Don simply enjoyed living. He was a very caring and giving individual, with many the recipient of his kind and generous nature. He especially loved the outdoors and was an avid racing enthusiast. He leaves behind his brother, Bob; sister, Marianne; his son, J. Todd Stewart (Carol); grandchildren, Don (Stacie), Joseph and Jillian; his three great-granddaughters, Madilyn, Amelia and Beckhamm; and his beloved surrogate son, Stewart Fifield. Don will be truly missed by the many individuals he touched during his lifetime. Memorial services will be at 11:20 a.m. Friday, July 1, Southern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery, 1900 Veterans Memorial Drive, Boulder City.
