A man who will be lovingly thought of and sorely missed. A class act if ever there was one. What greater tribute to anyone when someone passes and is so lovingly thought of by so many.

Judge Stuard was the most honest Judge I knew. You would never meet such an honorable man! God speed Judge Steward!

Never heard a negative word about Judge Stuard. That's a shame he didn't have much time to enjoy retirement. Very good article on him in I beleive Vindy shortly B4 he retired. Down to Earth guy.

Just read the obituary . . .

Often "Honorable", is a title.

John had that title because he was a judge . . . and he was a good judge.

But, not often, does the title otherwise so befit the person.

For John Stuard it most definitely does . . . a most honorable man.

Yes he was a kind soul who'd chat with nearly anyone as long as the subject was'nt essentially legal advice in nature. At least that's how I recall him.

My condolences to his family. Years ago, as a college student in my early 20's I needed to get my notary license. I went to the court house to take the test and was told afterward I needed to see a judge. It was the end of the day and Judge Stuard overheard and said "come on in"...he sat and talked to me for about 15 minutes. Every time I'd see him on TV I'd think of his kindness.

I agree John was a decent man, an excellent administrator of Jurisprudence and will be missed by those who admired him.

I always thought of John like a country doctor . . . a lot of common sense and John had a realistic viewpoint of justice.

John was an everyman's man with an everyman's viewpoint on things.

Shortly after serving in Common Pleas, John told me how shocked and often disgusted he was at seeing attorney's antics . . . from that side of the bench. It really seemed to bother him.

John was a great man for Trumbull County.

Well Chuck(Charles Pealer) . . . John learned the law and he was good at applying the law. We've lost a really good one.

A genuinely honorable man on and off the bench. I'm sure he is discussing artillery tactics with the Boys in Blue today.
