John M. Stewart, PG, CPG-11115 Greensboro, North Carolina May 31, 1955 - April 22, 2018

John Stewart, 62, the President of the Carolinas Section of AIPG, passed away unexpectedly on April 22, 2018. As President he was working hard to reinvigorate the Carolinas Section of AIPG, and was also an Advisory Board Representative on the AIPG National Executive Committee at the time of his death. John was active with the Geological Society of America and with many other geological and professional organizations within the Carolinas. It was a pleasure to know John and to work with him, and he will be as sorely missed by his AIPG Board colleagues as by his many professional colleagues and friends in the Carolinas.

He was always happy to take time to mentor the most junior geologist, or aid his most experienced colleagues. While will- ing to provide solid, and honest, advice he was also willing to listen to advice, criticism, or new ideas to better his and others’ knowledge of geology. He was regularly seen promoting the field of geology at meetings both local and national, and he had a passion for field work.

John was born May 31, 1955 in Alice, Texas to the late Inez Merryday and Rev. J. Rufus Stewart. He attended St. Joseph Academy, graduated from Brownsville High, class of ’73 and went on to college at Texas A&M, where he obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Wildlife & Fishery in the class of 1977. He later received a Master’s Degree in Geology from the University of Missouri.

John set his sights on a career in geology and achieved his objective, enjoying a long and fulfilling career in the discipline, achieving the rank of Chief Geologist for Engineering Consulting Services (ECS) Southeast, LLC. Throughout his life he coupled his passion for stewarding the environment with hard work, and never looked back.

John was also a leader in his church, a passionate soccer coach and referee, and leader of various civic and community organizations, including the YMCA and Rotary, where he will be missed for his effervescent, friendly spirit and his commit- ment to service.

John was a pleasure to be around, telling a joke or just shooting the breeze. He was the person you would want to hang out with at a meeting just talking over a beer - in his case often finishing it off with a good glass of whiskey.

John is survived by his wife of 37 years, Cindy Stewart; his two daughters, Carey Stewart and fiancée Scott Blakeman, Washington DC; and Jacqueline Tomlin and Zack, Raleigh, NC. The funeral services were held at First Baptist Church in Kernersville, NC 27284.
