Mr. Anthony Jose Stewart was called home on May 27th 2011 to claim his seat at the foot of his Father's throne.
Born October 10, 1959, in Harford County Maryland, he was one of four children born to the union of William and Mary Stewart, Sr. of Darlington Maryland. Anthony received his education in the Harford County Public School System and later attended a trade school in Street, Maryland specializing in small engine repair.

Whenever his health allowed he enjoyed spending his leisure hours fixing and collection cars, traveling, fishing, listening to music and dancing.
