Keith Stewart Dead at 45

Former Blairite Died Here Monday; Military Rites Held Yesterday

Keith E. Stewart, 45, son of Mrs. E.R. Stewart and the late Dr. Stewart, died at Blair Hospital Monday night after an illness of a month’s duration. He came here from Big Spring, Tex., May 30 on sick leave from his duties with the Soil Conservation Service there, and his condition became progressively more serious. He was confined to Methodist Hospital in Omaha for a time, then returned to his mother’s home at Walker Ave. and Butler St., and was removed to Blair Hospital Sunday.

Funeral services, with arrangements in charge of the Campbell Mortuary, were held at 3 p.m. yesterday at the Congregational Church. Local veterans of World War II fired an honor volley at burial services in Blair Cemetery, and taps were sounded. Pallbearers were Paul Hansen, John E. Hansen, John Sutton, Reed O’Hanlon, Jr., Damon Nielsen and Raymond Bross.

Born Here in 1901

Keith Edward Stewart and his twin brother, Kenneth, were born Sept. 26, 1901, in Blair. Keith was graduated from Blair high school in 1920 and later attended the University of Nebraska, Dana College and Boyles Business College.

Completing his education, Mr. Stewart joined the business staff of the former Omaha Bee, working for Frank DeTemple, former Blairite. Several years later he became associated with the Sinclair Oil Co. offices in Omaha. When that firm’s regional offices were moved to Kansas City, Mo., Mr. Stewart was transferred there. Severing his connection with Sinclair in 1937, Mr. Stewart later joined the Soil Conservation Services, and had served at Jonesboro, Ark., and Big Spring, Tex.

He was a veteran of World War II. Joining the Army in 1942, he served about nine months, being stationed first at Shepherd Field, Tex., then at the Army Air Base at Herington, Kan. He was discharged at Herington as a staff sergeant.

Surviving Mr. Stewart are his mother, Mrs. E.R. Stewart; one sister, Miss Ethel Stewart of Blair, and two brothers, Donald and Kenneth Stewart, both of Blair. His father, Dr. Stewart, died May 1, 1943, and his brother, J. Harold Stewart, died Oct. 22, 1945.
