Caleb Stewart, 36, passed away on Friday, May 6, 2016. Caleb was born in Woodward, Oklahoma, on June 4, 1979, to Richard and Melanie Stewart. In 1983 he was blessed with a second mother, Gayla Allen Stewart. The family moved to Tulsa in 1983 where Caleb formed many friendships. Caleb married his high school sweetheart, Annie Kukal, and with that union had Noah Hayden Stewart, 15. After that marriage ended, he began a loving relationship with Ashley Jezierski and together they raised Hailey, 10, and Arahnell, 9. Caleb became a heat and air conditioning journeyman and enjoyed working in the field. He also leaned many other talents under his boss and friend, Joe Mallott. Caleb was in a car wreck in July of 2015, and was unable to continue his work due to his serious injuries. He was working daily on regaining the use of his leg and foot.

We spent so many hours playing together when we were growing up. So many hours playing two-square, riding bikes, jumping on your trampoline, playing Mario Bros 1, 2, and 3, you introduced me to The Legend of Zelda and I hated it, I learned to play parts of Nirvana’s “Come As You Are” on your guitar and it’s still the only thing I can play on the guitar, you had two main meals that you liked : Domino’s Pizza or Grilled Cheese Sandwich and tomato soup, you took me to go get my driver’s license in your red Mercedes, I remember the time we put dish soap on the trampoline, added the hose then slid around until we all had rug rash all over our bodies, I remember when you found Champ the dog and you somehow convinced your dad to let you keep him, lots of swimming at the pool, playing in the creek, and so many other fun childhood memories that keep coming to me the more I think about you. I listened to Guns N Roses yesterday and immediately thought of you. You are so missed by everyone
