Obituary

A memorial service for Sergeant Alexander Nicholas Stewart will be held at 1:00pm on Saturday, June 1, 2019 at the First Methodist Church in Stillwater Oklahoma. Strode Funeral Home and Cremation is in charge of the service.

Alex was born in Stillwater Oklahoma on June 12, 1997. He graduated from Stillwater High School in 2015. While growing up in Stillwater he played the baritone in the high school marching band and also earned a black belt in Taekwondo. He entered the United States Army on September 26, 2016, and soon completed his initial training as a Military Police Officer at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. Alex was then assigned to Joint Base Lewis McChord in Washington State where he served as a team leader in the 170th Military Police Company, 504th Military Police Battalion.

On April 7, 2019, Alex went hiking in Olympic National Park with a fellow soldier. They came to a picturesque location known as High Steel Bridge and the other soldier stopped to take pictures. Alex continued walking, but after taking photos the other soldier could not find Alex and called 911. This resulted in a massive search by the local sheriff, national park rangers, search dogs, a Navy helicopter, and hundreds of soldiers from Alex’s military unit.

In a treacherous location along the trail search dogs alerted at a place where marks in the moss of the cliff face indicated that someone had recently fallen there. From that location, it is a straight 300 - 400-foot drop to the river below that was deep, cold, rushing whitewater. The Army has determined that Alex died as a result of a fall from that location. His body has not been recovered.

His Army commanders reported that Alex was a great motivating force in his military unit, setting the example in all he did. He was proud to serve his country and was a friend to everyone he met. During his military service Alex was awarded the Army Commendation Medal, the National Defense Service Medal, the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, and the Army Service Ribbon.

Alex is survived by his parents, Morgan and Cheryl Stewart; grandparents, Conrad and Linda McHugh, Joyce Johnson, Kay McConkey, Kay Stewart and Larry and Charlotte Johnson.

Charitable contributions to the Purple Heart Foundation are requested in lieu of flowers.
