CROW AGENCY — Beaumont Paul Stewart, born and raised in Crow Agency, Mont., went home with his Mom to kneel at the feet of our Lord in total Glory. He is free from all his bodily pains, which he lived with since he was very young. He married Lydia A. Hogan and the couple enjoyed many years together as husband and wife. He was raised as a traditional Crow Indian, therefore, he was very respectful of all his in-laws. He never spoke a bad word to them, out of the love he held for his wife. The love he had for all his female relatives was apparent by his actions toward them. Paul always said “I have an extremely good mother who taught me to always respect all my in-laws.” He had a Pendleton jacket made to show his forgiveness toward his mother in law for talking to her one time. The couple lived in Paul’s home, which Paul cherished because he had so many good memories there. He was a hard worker and was very skilled at electronics. He was the family’s electric gadget wiz. Whenever he worked he made sure he didn’t quit until the job was finished to perfection. Paul’s illness and bodily pain limited his job opportunities but he was always there to help Lydia and his children. He cherished the time spent with his family and was always spoiled by his female relatives. He was his Mama’s baby boy and the whole family catered to Paul. His father Floyd, was an inspiration in his life, always making time to see him when he returned from Ft. Belknap. He had a deep love for his two children. He referred to them as, “my God given gifts.” He had three nieces whom were very special to him, Randean, Rhonda and Rochelle. Paul and Randean grew up together and would make bottles of milk for each other after a long day at Headstart. One of the most glorious events in his life was becoming a Roman Catholic. He was converted through a vision of our Lady of Guadalupe. She came to him in a beautiful, life changing dream.
