PARIS CROSSING

William E. “Bill” Stewart, 64, of Paris Crossing passed away at 5 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 26, 2015, at his niece’s home in Austin.

He was a free spirit who hitchhiked across the United States for 15 years.

Survivors include two brothers, Danny (Cami) Stewart of Lawrenceburg and Denton Bolin of Tennessee; five sisters, Connie Greathouse of Clearspring, Mary Colvin of Crothersville, Tammy Briggs of Fort Wayne, Regina Stewart of New Albany and Darla Frezzill of Hobart; and several nieces and nephews.

Besides his parents and stepmother, he was preceded in death by a sister, Carol Cole.
