Eric Alvin Steward

March 16, 1979 - July 02, 2018

Eric Alvin Steward passed away Monday, July 2, 2018, at his home in Crossville at the age of 39. He was born March 16, 1979, to Alvin and Linda Steward of Cookeville.
He is survived by his mother, Linda Steward of Cookeville; son, Taylor Steward of Crossville; step son, Tucker Griffin of Crossville; family, Natalie Griffin (Bobby and Tripp); and a host of aunts, uncles and special cousins who loved him and will miss him.
He was preceded in death by his father, Alvin Steward; sister Kimberly Steward; grandparents, Bill & Salvilla Steward; and grandparents, Louie & Bonnie LaFever.
Eric was fearless fighter from birth, a miracle to say the least. He was a force, a light that shone so brightly you couldn't help but notice him. He always had a contagious smile and had never met a stranger. With the nickname Gumby, you were sure to get a laugh from him and his clumsiness. He was well known in the community for his work. From working at the Hospital Lab, to State Beauty Supply, and recently Amedisys Health, he touched so many lives. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.
Eric doesn't want us to mourn; he wants us to celebrate!
We will be celebrating Eric's beautiful life on July 21, 2018, at 2 p.m. The celebration will be at Trinity Assembly in Algood, TN. Eric's main request is NO BLACK, please.
In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund has been set up at Progressive Bank. Please send any photos or wonderful stories to for us to use at the celebration.
