Stewart William RhodesFebruary 12, 1970 ~ May 5, 2017 (age 47)
Stewart William Rhodes was born February 12, 1970 in Downey, California to Donnie and Marianna Rhodes. Stewart was the oldest of four kids, two brothers Steven and Scott, and one sister, Stacey.
Stewart graduated high school at Downey high in 1988 and then went to work at the Stonewood Mall as a security guard. While working there, Stewart met the love of his life in 1990 and married Paula Rhodes on November 23, 1991. Together, Stew and Paula had five children, Cody (1993), Courtney (1995), Connor (1997), Chase (1999), and Cole (2000), and moved numerous times throughout California, Oregon, and ultimately ended up in Marsing, Idaho in 2008.
Stewart was a fantastic father and role model to many more than just his kids; a perfect example of a loving and caring husband who always made sure that Paula knew that he loved her. Above all, he was active in the church and a strong devout follower of God.
Stewart went to be in heaven on May 5, 2017 unexpectedly. He joins his father Donnie and leaves behind Paula, his wife of 25 years, his children Cody (Erin), Courtney (Josiah), Connor, Chase, Cole, and his two grandkids, McKinley and Josie.
A small private viewing was held on Saturday, May 6 at the Flahiff Funeral Home, and a Celebration of life will be held on Friday, May 12, 2017 at 2pm in the Deer Flat Church in Caldwell, open to all those who Stewart touched during his time here on this Earth.
The family is asking that, in lieu of flowers, a small donation be made to the LLS charity or the Make-A-Wish Idaho foundation.
