He passed away peacefully, surrounded by loving family on May 23rd, 2020 at Community Hospital of Monterey Peninsula. Curtis gave his life to Christ in January 1997, he celebrated the fact that he was at peace with his creator. One of his favorite songs was “I’d rather have Jesus than silver and gold”. The devotion and his firm beliefs supported him in his struggles and ultimately gave him peace. Curtis grew up in Seaside, California, he attended school on the Monterey Peninsula and received his G.E.D in 1992. Affectionately known as “WAC” by his close friends, was the life of the party, E-40 “Da Bumble” & Notorious B.I.G. “Mo Money Mo Problems” to name a few of his favorite songs. He loved to dance and exhibited energy of a 20-year-old on the dance floor. He kept a smile on his face and a joke on his lips. Curtis was a fun loving, kind and caring man who also enjoyed cooking. He was a great cook and didn’t mind sharing his mother’s recipes, or had an extra plate ready when he whipped up a meal with ease, never measured, all memorized. Curtis greatest enjoyment was spending time with his family and closest friends. His children and grandchildren were the pride and joy of his life, the legacy of Curtis’s kind spirit, passion, humor, and zest for life will live on through them. Curtis realized his humor and talents couldn’t pay the bills so he worked as a cashier for many years which he soon loved because Curtis thrived on the exchange of interesting conversations with co-workers and customers. Curtis did not live an average life, he was famously opinionated, quick-witted and ready with a one-liner joke that ensured everyone was laughing, even if things were bad, he was always there with his contagious laughter and energy to brighten the lives of others. Curtis was known for his sharp tongue, not holding back his opinion, and a knack for telling it like it is. He was highly skillful at cursing. He always told you the truth, even if it wasn’t what you wanted to hear. He was generous to a fault, gentle man at heart, and yet he sugar-coated absolutely nothing. Curtis took fashion advice from no one. With his trademark t-shirts and strategically matched attire, his comfort far outweighed any interest in the latest fashion trends. He always took great pride in his appearance especially “clean shoes”. The larger-than-life persona and his personality set Curtis apart from others and will always be greatly missed and fondly remembered by his family, and close friends near and far. Curtis is preceded in death by his parents: Lee Stewart Jr., and Teodolinda Stewart-Williams. He is survived by his partner of 5 years; Shawniece Johnson, two daughters; Tashayla Stewart & Hasani Stewart, four sons; Keith James-Stewart, Spencer Stewart (Selena), Joziah Stewart, and Curtis Stewart Jr., three brothers; Gene Stewart, Kensito Church, and Marcus Stewart, two sisters; Gloria Williams and Leah McNary, four grandchildren; Jeisen Stewart, Kahleel Stewart, Kenzo James-Stewart, and Tokyo Stewart, as well as his "special" nephew; Valencio Williams, cousin; Sean Hand and childhood friends; Rodney Butler, Donnie Franklin, Stephanie Carter, Rosalyn Green, and Beverly Bowser, as well as a host of loving nieces, nephews, cousins, and many more relatives and friends.
