We must remember to celebrate the great life he had and not the loss.

So sad this wonderful man has left us!!🙏

Great Man.

What a fine fine man he was.

To Loy Jr., Gregg, Donna, Leo And Zeke - all of the wonderful people at Detyens who I’ve had the pleasure of working with - it was an HONOR to know Mr. Stewart. For the obstacles he had to overcome in his last years of life with ALS, he always was quick witted and it was truly humbling to be in his presence. I will never forget his visit to Image Branding Group. The employees flocked around him like he was one of the Beatles! I know this virus has prematurely taken him and that makes me so sad for all of you. Please know all of the Detyens family and employees are on my heart and I will pray for you all.

I would like to tell every one of you in person, but that is not practical right now.  This is tough.  Last night my Dad, “THE” Mr. Stewart passed away.  He fought ALS for over 15 years but ultimately it was the Coronavirus that took him.  I will truly miss him as not only my Dad but my mentor.  He touched countless lives.  You know who you are.  If you don’t believe this virus is deadly, stop and think about him and his smile that kept us going every day.  He is the main reason we are where we are today. 
There are no arrangements right now.  Thanks for all of your thoughts and prayers.  Please pass the word.  Loyjr.

Loy Jr. We are so saddened about this and deepest thoughts and prayers are with you and the family. I am another who Loy took a chance on 21 years ago and I am truly blessed to have known and work with during that time. He was a great inspiration in all our lives and will truly be missed. RIP sir you can now walk with the blessed.

Hi Mr. Stewart-- Im am sorry to learn of your father's passing-- I was his ALS neurologist at Johns Hopkins for many years-- and i missed seeing him in recent years. I deeply enjoyed my time with him and always promised to visit him at the shipyards he used to tell me about. He was a truly fine fella- wonderful human being. Im sure you will all miss him.

He will definitely be missed and all his wonderful advice and laughs that made me who I am. I am so sorry Loy, Jason and Johnathan. I am grateful to have known him and had the best times with him. Praying for y’all and everyone who he touched.

A man like no other. When he entered a room, it came to life he was a generous and inspirational person. He will be missed !

Loy and Jonathan, sorry for your loss. He was a great man and I’m fortunate to have met him. You all are in my thoughts and prayers.

So sorry Loy, and to the entire Stewart family. He was an extraordinary man. And I am grateful for everything he has done for Larry and I and our family. Sincerest condolences. Please let us know what we can do.

One of best men I have ever known and had the privilege to work for. Rest in peace Mr. Stewart...you will forever be in the hearts of everyone whose lives you touched. God Bless

So sorry to hear this ☹️. It was an honor to work for y'all when I was there. He was a great person, sending prayers!

Prayers lifted from Abbeville. Mr. Loy Stewart was one of the most kind and respected people I have ever known. God bless the family during this time!

What an incredible legacy he leaves through so many lives he has touched. He had a true gift and drive to really know others and develop relationships and mentor others. He is the reason I am a physician today. I am so grateful for his friendship and for the influence he had on my life during such a formative time in my life. I regret not coming out to see him over the past several years. 😢 love to all the Stewarts and extended family.

Rest In Peace Mr. Stewart. I’d like to think you and my dad, Earl Shepard, who thought the world of you is greeting you in heaven and the two of you are talking shop! Thoughts and prayers of comfort to the family

This is very, very, very tragic and sad news to hear. We are so very sorry.. may God’s peace and love be with you all during this time and always. God is surrounding you all right now with his love. We are praying for you and your entire family right now.

I am sorry to hear this. My dad, Gene Burgess worked for many years at Detyens. I have many fond memories of Detyens and Mr. Stewart. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Loy made a lasting impression on our family all the way over here in Texas. He was a true humanitarian that my son Keaton and niece Jennifer has been blessed by his kindness and caring spirit for the past 4 years. He will be missed severely and never forgotten. I will miss getting shipments of Detyens t-shirts he prints out from his shopping sprees with Jen. Sorry for your loss and may he RIP.

Wow. I am so sorry to hear. Prayers for your family. Loy and family were the first people We met when we moved to SC in 1975, and my dad worked with him for years.

Loy and Stewart Family, I’m so sorry for your loss and hurt. I’ve never known anyone like Mr. Stewart. He was a beautiful example of how Jesus calls us to love our neighbor. He loved with a huge heart and desire to help others succeed in life. Bradley, Bailey, Holly and I were very blessed to be one of those to be loved and mentored by him. We will forever be thankful and he’ll live in our hearts forever. I’ll be praying for comfort as you walk through the days ahead. We love you.

He was the kindest, most generous, genuinely giving, caring, fun and Most Inspiring man I am so proud to have know and spent time with socially and in work. He is the reason we have the Shipyard in Charleston, SC. He has touched so so many lives and guided so many people. He was a Great Man that let nothing hold him back. Rip and you will always be in our hearts Mr Stewart. 😓🙏❤️

🙏❤ Prayers for you and your family. Mr. Stewart was such a wonderful person and he will be greatly missed. Mr. Stewart and his beautiful wife are together again holding hands saying don't be sad we will see you again one day.

So very sorry Loy, Jonathan and Jason. Dad has been telling me stories all day about his “journey” with your Dad. Such a big loss. May he Rest In Peace

Sorry for your loss, I don't know anyone that touched as many people (in a good way) as your dad. LOY was a man among men I will cherish the times I spent knowing him.

Nicely said, Loy. Those who learned from, were mentored by or spent time to get to know Mr. Stewart will be forever grateful for those precious memories. Mr. Stewart is one of a kind and everyone who loves him has a broken heart and heavy spirit on this day. Only bright side is that Mr. & Mrs. Stewart are together again. Thinking of and sending love to the Stewarts.

I am so sorry to hear this. He was the most caring, generous man that i ever knew. Love you all! His Aunt Betty

So sorry...Prayers for everybody whose life was touched by his outlook on life and his generous spirit. May he be forever in our hearts and serve to be the model for how to live life. 🙏🙏🙏

Sending my condolences. I had met him a few times over the years when my dad (Matt McKuhen) worked there. Prayers and hugs yalls way.

Mr. Stewart was such an inspiration to so many, especially to my friends Debbie and Larry McCravy who knew first-hand what life with ALS looked like. Our prayers are with the Stewart extended family. He had so many fans, me included.
