Brian J. Stewart

December 29, 1985 - July 7, 2021

Brian J. Stewart passed away unexpectedly at home on July 7, 2021 in Virginia Beach, VA at the age of 35. He was born in Virginia Beach, VA to Dennis and Tara Stewart. For 11 years he was married to the love of his life, Erin M. Stewart.

Brian will always be remembered for his sweet nature and his sense of empathy which led naturally to a career with Sentara Leigh Hospital as an ED technician. Brian previously volunteered with the Virginia Beach Rescue Squad as an EMT. He also had a great passion for rescue dogs who gave him much solace. While Brian’s journey ended too early, he leaves behind countless comforting memories of a gentle, sensitive soul who was always ready to lend a helping hand. He will be greatly missed.

Brian is survived by his loving parents, Dennis and Tara; his wife, Erin and brother, Matthew. He will also be fondly remembered by his aunts and uncles, Maura and her husband Verne, Kathleen, Mary Beth and her husband Tom, Jimmy and his wife Suzy, Paula and her husband Rich as well as 5 cousins. He also leaves his father-in-law, James McDonald and sister-in-law, Amanda McDonald.
