Stew settled in northern Virginia in 1964, retired from the military, then worked as Registrar for North Virginia Community College until his final retirement in 1985 when he and Betty moved to Strasburg.
Stew enjoyed golf over all else which he played throughout his life and most veraciously in his retirement years nearly to the end.
