He was born on the 14th Con. of Greenock Twp., the eldest son of the late Mr. and Mrs. W.T. Stewart. He attended SS #7 Greenock, and for a time worked the farm of his parents, and in 1911 moved to Lot 4, Con 19, in the same township, where he has since resided.

In association with his brothers, Mr. Stewart for many years conducted a dining service on the grounds of the Canadian National Exhibition which had built up a large following of regular patrons who returned year after year to eat at the Stewart tables where they were assured of good clean food, and a cordial welcome from "Billy" Stewart or his brothers.
