Clarence Eugene "Snook" Stewart III

February 2, 1962 ~ May 23, 2022 (age 60)


Clarence Eugene Stewart III (Snook) was born to Ralph and Inell Stewart, Sr. in Jamaica, Queens, New York, on February 2, 1962, and, guided by the hands of the Lord, concluded his earthly journey on Monday, May 23, 2022. 
At a young age, Snook developed talents that would define his character and endear him to everyone who knew him, which included his passion for music, photography, bicycling, and grilling. His gift for working with his hands, whether on vehicles or tending a garden, was legendary and often sought after, for it seemed there was nothing Snook could not fix to make your life better. He was fierce in his loyalty, uncompromising in living honestly, and peerless in his generosity. He was a man of God who protected his family fearlessly and defended his country courageously. Snook rendered his service during Operation Desert Storm, where he completed his tour of duty with an honorable discharge, retiring from the U.S. Army/Army Reserve at the rank of Staff Sergeant. He accumulated many decorations, badges, citations, and campaign ribbons in his career, including the Army Services Ribbon, the Sharpshooter Badge M-16, and the Army Achievement Medal. For many of us, his passing will be among the most profound losses we have ever experienced.
Snook was preceded in death by his parents, Ralph and Inell Stewart, Sr.; nephew, Todd Stewart. 
He leaves to celebrate his extraordinary life, the mother of his children, Felicia Guydon Stewart of Knoxville, TN; sons: Darius Stewart of Iowa City, IA, and Carlos (Valerie) Eugene Stewart Sr. of Murfreesboro, TN; daughter Jakia Stewart of Knoxville, TN; grandchildren: Arshay Stewart, Princess Patrick, Larreece Stewart, Dominique Stewart, Malia Stewart, Carlos Eugene Stewart, Jr. "CJ"; Cayden Stewart, and Larry Joseph Stewart "LJ"; siblings: Debra (Nathan) Howard of North Carolina; Anita Stewart, Angela Stewart, both of Knoxville, TN; Ralph (Joyce) Stewart, Jr. of North Carolina; Cheryl Alsup, and Tamala Anderson, both of Knoxville, TN; eleven nieces and nephews; numerous great and great-great nieces and nephews; and many cousins.
