Several designs of war memorials stand to his credit, including those at T obermory, Laurencekirk, Lonmay, and Kirkwall.

He was a Justice of the Peace. In politics, Mr Stewart was a staunch Unionist and a numb er ref years ago was president of the South Aberdeen Unionist Association. A keen tariff refo rmer, Mr Stewart had on many occasions addressed meetings in city and county on this subject . Mr Stewart’s interests were many and varied.

H e was also a keen golfer, and at one time a prominent member of the Deeside Club. A son of th e late Mr James Stewart, who was also a prominent member of the granite trade, Mr Stewart i s survived by Mrs Stewart, three sons (one of whom is Mr W. N.
