Alan W. Steward, 79, of Palatka passed away Wednesday, November 11, 2020 at Putnam Community Medical Center in Palatka following an extended illness.
Born in Laurel, Maryland, he moved to Palatka when he was seven years old, coming from Upper Marlboro, Maryland. He had practically lived on the St. Johns River where he enjoyed boating and the outdoors. He enjoyed auto racing and people came from all over to race him in his 1962 red Chevy Impala. He also enjoyed motorcycling and auto mechanicing. He was a hard working truck driver who hauled logs for several timber companies in Marion and Putnam Counties. The biggest part of his life was his family, whom he adored.
Preceding him in death were his parents, Thomas and Mildred Steward; a sister, Myrtle Rozman; a brother, Lewis Steward; and his parents-in-law, Earl and Gladys Owens.
Surviving are his wife of 57 years and the love of his life, Sherry Steward; two sons and daughter-in-law, Mike Steward, and Scott and Trey Steward; three grandchildren and spouse, Michael Alan, Jr. and Darlene Steward, Jamie Austin, and Hannah Steward; three great grandchildren, Carter Steward, Aubree Steward, and Darson Steward; and several nieces and nephews.
