Robert (Bob) E. Stewart Jr., 68, of rural Mauston passed away Tuesday December 3, 2019 peacefully after his courageous battle with brain cancer at Wisconsin Dells Health Services. Bob was born June 29, 1951 in Sparta, WI, the son of Robert Stewart Sr. and Stella Hysell.
Bob was a fun, loving, gentle man with a giving heart. He spent many years working at Kozy's Pizza, the family business, that was ran by his mother Stella. Many knew him as the pizza man but the people who meant the most knew him as dad. If he wasn't in the kitchen whipping up pizzas, you could find him heading to the river with a tackle box in one hand and a fishing pole in the other. Bob also had a passion for collecting beautiful antique items. It wouldn't be any surprise to catch him at an antique store or a second hand store looking to add to his collection. Bob also loved spending time with family, especially his girls. Bob had the chance to meet his son after many years. Although their time together was brief, it gave Bob such joy and peace.
Bob is survived by his three daughters Leya Stewart, Shana (Joshua) Smiley and Selena Stewart and his sons Matthew Stewart and Len (Lisa) Jessen, along with his sister Cindy Olson. Bob also is leaving behind many grandchildren along with nieces and nephews. He is proceeded in death by his parents, brother David and grandson Robert.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Monday December 16, 2019 at 1:00pm at Kozy's Pizza in Mauston, WI.
