Former educator laid to rest

January 30, 2018

Carol Thompson Stewart spent much of his life of 67 years touching a wide cross-section of the lives of people in his native Trelawny.

Stewart, a former teacher and childcare development officer passed away on December 30, 2017.

Leon Spence, retired principal of Daniel Town Primary where Stewart taught, remembered him as a disciplined, jovial person. 

"He had maximum respect for punctuality and was rarely late. He instilled this discipline in his students," he said.
The life he lived was shown in the number of tributes at the service, 17 in all.

A man who did not hide his affection for The People's National Party, also had the Jamaica Labour Party councillor for the area paying tribute.

"He was a humble yet formidable person of gentle persuasion," said Jonathan Bartley.

Rev Owen Watson said "Carol was a Christian who believed that God's grace was sufficient."

The former chairman of Unity Primary was buried in the family plot in Bounty Hall. He died leaving a wife and three children.
