Raymond Stewart was born on July 3, 1941, and passed away January 25, 2024.  Raymond was born in Albany, Louisiana to loving parents Eddie and Naomi on the Stewart home place which remains in the family to this day.  He worked on a dairy farm from a young age, where he developed a lifelong work ethic.  His parents taught him the importance of hard work, faith, and family.  He graduated from Hammond High School after which he chose to serve his country in the United States Navy, where he spent most of his enlistment aboard the USS Intrepid. He started in the insurance industry in 1963 and later established Raymond Stewart Insurance Agency in 1978.   He took great pride in service to his church and community outreach.  Like his father, Raymond served in the masons in the Dee A.

He was a member of Parkview Baptist Church since 1972, where he served as a deacon, proud member of the Parkview Choir, and served on the board of Trustees for 35 years.
