Jonathan Harold “Jono” Stewart, 33, passed away on Thursday, May 20, 2021.
Jonathan was born on May 11, 1988 in Frederick, Maryland, and spent most of his youth in Wilmington and Lawrenceville, Georgia. From there he traveled and lived in cities all over the United States. Some of his favorites were Asheville; Riverside, California; Seattle, Washington; and Denver, Colorado, which he loved for their natural beauty.
One of his greatest joys was taking a long drive in the car while listening to his favorite music, books, movies or talking on the phone with his best friend since birth, his father. Jono was passionate about comics and science fiction. He enjoyed playing, especially with other people, whether it was raid in League, being the dungeon master in a game of D&D, or playing chess.
He has always been a voracious reader, from Harry Potter to the Count of Monte Cristo, who passionately loved libraries and all they offered to the community. He had a wacky sense of humor; he liked to laugh and make others laugh. Jonathan was a wanderer and always marveled at the stars. It’s only fitting that we put him on a rocket and send his ashes into space, for his last great adventure.
He is survived by his parents, Carole Ellzey, Glenn Ellzey, Dave Stewart and Diane Stewart; siblings, Ryan Stewart (Jessica) and Whitney Ellzey; nephew, Daniel Stewart; babe, Sharon Stewart; and grandfather, Michael Ellzey.
A memorial will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, June 5, at Coble Funeral Home, 1155 Shipyard Blvd., Wilmington. It will be an intimate and relaxed gathering, where we will share memories and support each other. To celebrate Jonathan you are encouraged to wear your nerd gear, some of his favorites were the Marvel and DC universes.
Flowers and condolences can be sent to Coble Funeral Home, 1155 Shipyard Blvd., Wilmington, NC 28412. Anything sent to this address will be passed on to the family.
