“Jimmy” Stewart, VP Akron Steel Treating 1960-2020

It is with genuine regret that we mention the passing of James “Jimmy” Stewart, Vice President of Akron Steel Treating in Akron, Ohio, USA. We met Jimmy a number of times and always had a high respect for the man. Akron Steel Treating  is one of the oldest commercial heat treaters in the USA and has a very interesting history. We include this photo of the owner of the company Mr. Joe Powell in the plant, circa 2018 to provide some background to James’s professional life.

“James W. Stewart, “Jimmy”, age 60 of Akron, Ohio, died on November 2, 2020 at Akron City Hospital. He was born on February 16, 1960 in Akron, the son of the late Gilbert and Ann (nee Williams) Stewart. Jimmy was a 1978 graduate of Central Hower High School. He was Vice President of Akron Steel Treating in Akron for 41 years. He enjoyed fishing and taking drives, however, his greatest joy was spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren.

Survivors include his loving wife, the former Judith A. “Judy” Angerstien, whom he married on June 26, 1978; his two children, Craig Stewart and Marie Stewart; his three grandchildren, DJ Smith and John and Victoria Sowa.
