Christian Jaron Stewart (Indian name, “Red Blanket” given by his great grandfather, Ettings Little Owl), at the age of 21, went to be with the Lord on August 10, 2018.
Christian attended Elementary and High School in Hardin, MT. He loved to hunt and fish with his friends, and loved spending time in the mountains with his dad, Indian. Christian enjoyed playing the acoustic and electric guitar. He loved watching Dragonball Z and cooking for everyone, especially his little sister Rylei. Christian was involved in basketball his sophomore year, involved in football his freshman year and involved in both throughout junior high. He was also a bulldog mascot for one season in high school.
Christian has a kind soul, and was always willing to help anyone no matter who they were. He was always concerned for others, especially his brother Mitchyll. Christian always had a smile on his face and all his teachers loved him. His close friends knew him as, “Crispy”, because of his universal sense of humor.
Christian was a survivor of an aneurysm at the age of nine, and went through brain surgery at the age of ten. Christian is a fighter. When he woke up from surgery he was asking for his mom. It was there where he met a Military soldier, whose child was in there as well. The soldier talked to and calmed Christian down until his mom arrived. This was the reason he wanted to enlist in the military, but due to his medical conditions he was unable to pursue that dream. Now he is a soldier of God.
