Brian Stewart was taken from us suddenly March 24, 2020. Born in 1956, a 3rd generation San Diegan, attended college in Colorado. He traveled the western states for various construction projects. In the 1980’s he resided in Redding, CA area, spent the 1990’s in Mt Shasta, moving to McCloud, CA in 2004.

A General Engineering & Building Contractor by trade, he enjoyed most designing creative and efficient space and structures. His appreciation for local historical architectural elements and preservation inspired the design and building of several unique homes in Mt Shasta and McCloud. To help his community, Brian donated his design and time as project manager to create McCloud’s Pavilion Performance Stage and Bocce Ball courts.

A dedicated community activist and warrior believed the role of government was through creative solutions to achieve justice and efficiency. He served on numerous Boards and Committees; was especially interested in historical preservation and environmental protection.

Brian was fun loving, and loved life. He had great appreciation for nature’s wondrous beauty. An avid canoer, hiker, camper, skier, surfer, hunter and fisherman. He loved nothing more than to prepare a gourmet picnic, hike up Mt Shasta to watch a moonrise. He loved art, poetry, and music. He was a wonderful cook! He dearly loved all his family and friends.

Brian leaves behind so many who loved him including his long time beloved Barbara Korb of Mccloud, mother Jocelyn Stewart of San Diego, CA, brother Steve Stewart (Laurel) of SD, CA, granddaughters Jocelyn and Magnolia Stewart, sons Owen and Quinn Stewart and their mother Leslie all of Redding, CA, nephews Kelly Stewart, Corey Stewart, and Hunter Olney. Preceding him in death is father Robert G. Stewart.

An online photo album of Brian’s love of life can be viewed: A Celebration of Life will be scheduled at a later date.
