January 16, 1934 to January 28, 2017

Burton Jan Stewart of Portland passed away peacefully on January 28, 2017 following a brief illness.

Born in 1934, he grew up traveling to several states while his father served in the US Army. Upon his father's retirement, the family settled in Battle Ground, WA, where he went to high school. After graduation, he married Barbara Healey of Salmon Creek, WA. Together they raised three children.

Burton worked nearly 40 years at Hyster Company before retiring in 1996. He was a test driver of fork lift trucks at the company's Portland-area proving grounds as well as responsible for facility maintenance. After retiring, Burton and Barbara traveled with friends and family. Burton loved and adored his family, especially his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Burton was a servant leader, volunteering with the American Red Cross, Boy Scouts of America, and at the churches he and his wife attended. He was a prayer warrior to the end, praying daily for friends, family, and the numerous missionaries sponsored by his church, Greater Portland Baptist.

He is survived by his wife of 62 years, Barbara Stewart of Portland; children Mark Stewart of Puyallup, WA, Jeff Stewart of Rocklin, CA, and daughter Patti Carlson of Gresham; six grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren.

A memorial service for Burton will be Saturday, February 11 at 2 p.m., at Greater Portland Baptist Church, 17800 SE Main St., Portland.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the church's Mission Fund to support missionary activities.
