Oscar R Stewart was the first born child of Oscar Stewart and MayLinda R Stewart, born October 6, 1963 in Estancia, Iloilo, Philippines. To friends he was often referred to simply as "O". He was preceded in death by his parents, Oscar and MayLinda. Wednesday afternoon, March 8, 2023, he fought his final valiant battle and followed the hands of God peacefully home.
Oscar had a brilliant mind and lived a life fulfilled - even with peaks and valleys he experienced many things only some could dream of. As a military dependent he traveled the world early on and throughout his lifetime. He encountered people from all walks of life who became extended family and friends forever. Family was important. In his youth, Oscar was multi skilled & talented in many things. He found the love of martial arts and became a disciplined master of many art forms. It was that mentality he possessed, that is what one would have to understand, by his intensity, focus, determination and perseverance in which he had come to live by. As a young adult Oscar was internationally known as a B-Boy (break dancer) and was fully immersed in the hip-hop community and culture as he was highly revered in the entertainment industry. He was so graceful, agile and nimble and his dance movements would put you in a trance. One of the original founding members of Cincinnati's very own (Forest Park roots), The Skywalkers.
Oscar was a dreamer and so full of life, that led to many adventures - domestic and abroad. If you were able to experience an y one adventure with him you could call yourself fortunate and one of the few lucky to have been chosen. He was a charming, caring and loving man. Once you became a friend, you became family and he would do anything within his power to make sure you were good. He was a foodie/food connoisseur and made sure when he ate, you ate. He was playful and mischievious (a prankster). Anyone who was on the receiving end of his prank knows, but he would go lengths to make you smile or laugh...or even try to temporarily take your pain away if even for a moment. He had this bright and infectious smile that lit up the room and the world. Anyone that had a chance encounter or crossed his path knew how special he truly was. It was an immediate, genuine connection, a rarity, you don't always find in people. He was simply one-of-a-kind. He is a person that leaves a lasting impression that is forever imprinted in your heart for life.
