On June 15th, 2023 I lost the most wonderful partner that anyone could ever wish for. I waited 53 years to find someone capable of giving and sharing their most genuine and unique heart…...Chuck Stewart was that person. He had lived quite the life before we found each other, as he had a previous partner for many, many years – 36 to be exact! When his first love tragically passed, Chuck was left alone for the first time to pick himself up and reshape his life alone…..we met shortly thereafter. It was this harrowing story of loss that bonded us together, because I too had experienced a great loss as well, my beloved mother who was the “wheel at the mast” of our family ship. All through our almost eight years together, Chuck expressed his love like a man transported from another time. Always there to lend unconditional love and support to me , my family and to his many , many friends. The beautiful cards and messages alone could bring a person to their knees, always caring and thoughtfully versed. It was “flowers, flowers and yes, more flowers”……his appreciation and love for the beauty in this world was unmatched. How blessed and fortunate was I ? My beautiful and talented Chuck, who I waited so long to finally meet and fall “crazy” in love with, always know that I will be forever half in the room without your presence. I will remain unfinished until I see you again. My brilliantly charming, funny and selfless love, how I miss you so. Your loving Floyd.
Chuck’s achievements were many. In the 1990’s Chuck was part of the “Bread & Roses” organization, helping to provide client care for patients who were compromised or learning to navigate with HIV. Eventually he was asked to be on the Board of Directors in 1994. This he did for almost eight years, while also hosting weekends of dining and entertainment events for the agency as well. Later in life Chuck fulfilled the dream of a lifetime. Although he had majored in speech pathology in college, it just didn’t turn out to be his calling. Chuck set out to take classes after long workdays and weekends at the New York Botanical Gardens. After a few arduous years of hard work, Chuck received his certificate in Floral Design. This was clearly one of the brightest and proudest moments of his life! Chuck’s floral creations were already a marvel to behold, but with his newly applied techniques in botanical design his level of execution had reached its zenith. When you were gifted with one of his arrangements, you knew that it came straight from his heart. Chuck graduated from Albert Gallatin High School in western Pennsylvania and attended Bloomsburg State College in Pennsylvania. The Survivors of Chuck Stewart include his loving and devoted partner, Floyd DiCosmo of Connecticut, sister Meredith A. Schmidt of Colorado, brother Richard M. Stewart of Pennsylvania and sister Cheri L. Stewart of Pennsylvania. Predeceased members include Chuck’s previous partner, the Reverend David P. Wentroble, parents Helen Virginia McQuay Stewart and Robert M. Stewart, brothers Ronald M. Stewart and Robert David Stewart.
