James Leonard Stewart

SALISBURY — James Leonard Stewart, 80, passed away peacefully and in the company of family on May 11, 2021.  Len joins his partner of more than 55 years who passed in 2016.

Len was born July 25, 1940, in Laurel, Delaware.  After graduating from William Penn High School in New Castle, Len worked for Dupont in Wilmington then moved to live and work in Cambridge, England.  Shortly after arriving, Len was drafted into the U.S. Army as an Engineer and served primarily in South Korea.  After his military service, Len returned to Cambridge where he lived and worked for 20 years before moving back to the United States and settling in Salisbury in 1979.

Len was very active in the community as a volunteer at Noble Horizons for more than 30 years, a member of the Planning and Zoning Commission for the Town of Salisbury for over 20 years, and a familiar face at many fundraisers, town meetings, events, parades and around town during his 42 years in Salisbury.

Len is survived by his sister Marianne of Iowa Falls, Iowa, and brother Robert of Silver Springs, Maryland.  Services for Len will be announced at a later date. Memorial contributions may be made to the Salisbury Visiting Nurses Association, Noble Horizons, and the Salisbury Volunteer Ambulance Corps.
