A licensed funeral director and embalmer, Stewart has been involved in the funeral service industry since his teenage years working in a family funeral business.  He graduated from Dallas Institute of Funeral Service in 1994 and subsequently served as funeral director and embalmer at several Oklahoma funeral homes until joining Suhor in 2007.

“The growth of our region is attributable to the dedicated individuals at our locations and the confidence placed in us by our customers,” Stewart commented. “While I am privileged to take on this role, I realize that success is contingent on the commitment of our entire team and I thank them for that.”
