My family lived next door...Often,in the morning, while Chief Stewart would be leaving his house for the Police Dept. he would stop and give my brother and I a ride to school in the police car...It was always a very special treat. He was a special friend and as children we held him in great esteem...My family was very sad to hear about his untimely death.....He is remembered very fondly for being so good to two very young kids...

To the family and friends of Chief of Police Donald Stewart and the Escalon Police Department:

It has been forty two years since your death, but you are not forgotten. This is your anniversary date and you are remembered. Your valor will be forever remembered and honored.

It must have been a terrible blow to your small department to lose their Chief of Police in such a senseless act.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the many years of distinquished service you gave to the community and the citizens of California, and for the supreme sacrifice you and your family made on August 24, 1963 in the line of duty.
Rest In Peace.
