Raymond L. Stewart

Raymond L. Stewart, 91, of Langdon, ND, passed away quietly on September 9, 2022, at Langdon Prairie Health surrounded by his family.

Raymond was born in St. Andrews Township, Walsh County, North Dakota, on June 21, 1931. He grew up on the family farm near Drayton, ND, and graduated high school from Drayton before serving in the US Army for two years. He returned home to Drayton and married Kathryn Ann Ferguson on September 16, 1954. They lived in Petersburg, ND, and Grand Forks, ND, before he began working in the construction industry in 1965. He began and ended his career with the same company, Stone & Webster Engineering. He and Kathryn and their children, Scott and Janell, lived and worked in many places throughout his career. Ray and Kath retired to Drayton, ND, in the mid-1980s. In 2005, they made Langdon their home. Raymond moved to Wheatland Estates in 2018.

Raymond loved sports of all kinds. He played baseball and basketball in high school and later curled and played golf. He followed the Twins and Vikings faithfully. He didn’t miss many nights playing a couple games of cribbage with Scott. He was especially surprised and pleased on November 29, 2018, when “Little Raymond” was born to Ian and Theresa. He loved sending cards to all his family and many friends.

Raymond is survived by his children, Scott (Patricia) Stewart and Janell (Dick) Eklof; grandchildren: Ian (Theresa) Stewart, Elliot (Ksenia Miliutinskaia) Stewart, Dr. Jonathan (Pamela) Eklof, and Katy Mosher; ten great-grandchildren: Bethany, Raymond, Joanna & Julia Stewart, Emrie, Odin & Iva Eklof, Carter, Oliver & Graham Mosher; sister Coleyne Angel; brother Jay Stewart; and special friend Irene Anderson. He was preceded in death by his wife, Kathryn; his father, Lawrence Stewart; and his mother, Laura (Rath) Stewart.

Services will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, September 14, 2022, at United Methodist Church in Langdon. Visitation will be held one hour before the service. Inurnment will be at Drayton Cemetery at a later date.

Raymond was such a sweet and gentle man, whom we feel blessed to have known and loved. Sending lots of hugs and prayers to his dear family. (His Christmas cards were my favorite.)

My Sympathy to all his family & friends. Raymond was a special, remarkable man with a sharp memory. I was always amazed that he would always address everyone with their first name wherever you meet him. It was a pleasure to take care of him.
