Obituary for Alexander (Jake) G. Stewart
Alexander (Jake) Gerald Stewart passed away on August 15th, 2013 at St. Croix Regional Medical Center after a courageous ten year battle with inclusion body myositis (IBM). He was 90 years of age.

Jake was born on January 17th, 1923 in Guelph, Ontario Canada, the last of nine children born to Alexander Hannah Stewart and Mary Scott Stewart. When he was eight years old he moved with his family to Racine, WI, where his father served as minister at the Racine Union Tabernacle Church (Racine Bible Church). Jake was a graduate of Park High School. He enlisted in the Marines in 1942 and served as a Corporal on the USS Guam in the Pacific during WWII. He married Joyce Elaine Kammerer on April 22nd, 1950 and together they had two daughters, Pamela and Nancy. He was employed at Belle City Malleable and Iron Co./Racine Steel Castings for 42 years.

Jake was a loving, attentive husband and father and enjoyed the companionship of a large and wonderful circle of friends. He chased par on the golf course, enjoyed endless hours fishing for the elusive muskellunge and savored a good joke and a dry martini. Jake had an eye for invention and designed many items that helped him adapt when his muscles began to fail. His appreciation of music was legendary.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Joyce Stewart, and will be sorely missed by his surviving family: daughters Pamela Scheible (Steven) of Eau Claire and Nancy Stewart (Jeff Peterson) of Luck; grandchildren Mark Scheible of Madison, Lindsey Dahlke (Brian) of Windsor, CO, Jacob Scheible of Wausau and Arianne Stewart Peterson of Cumberland; great-grandchildren Carson and Breckyn Dahlke and Payton Scheible; nephew Lee Kammerer of Racine and many other nieces and nephews.

The family wishes to extend their gratitude to the staff at Comforts of Home in Frederic for their loving care of Jake and his family over the last two years.

A private ceremony for immediate family will be held in Arbor Vitae, WI. The family requests memorials to The Myositis Association in lieu of flowers.

The Myositis Association, 1737 King Street, Suite 600, Alexandria, VA 22314
