    Larry Stewart was a great christian and leader at St. JOHNS CHURCH Deal Island Maryland! He supported the church financially and through leadership! He was a hero who supported people in the community and church! His support continues through his wife Daisey. I can say Larry loved Jesus and our community. He lived the Christian life!
