Stewart George Vaughn | Obituary


Stewart George Vaughn born June 2, 1931 found the love of his life, Needa, on Sunday April 3, 2022.

Stewart was a very talented, jack-of-all-trades man his entire life. He worked for the Kingsport Milling Company and helped rebuild the mill with his father after the fire. He continued to work there until his move to AFG where he retired after 35 years of service. He also owned Stone Drive Sport Shop and Vaughn’s Taxidermy. He even rode a few animals for Johnny Cash. He loved fishing, hunting and shooting. He loved his family and was the greatest dad and grandpa on the planet. Her greatest legacy, however, was her love for Jesus. He was an elder and usher at the Apostolic Gospel Church and, most importantly, was known as “Candyman” to all of its members, young and old. Stewart was also a connoisseur of pineapple milkshakes.

His beloved wife of over 64 years, Juanita Castle Vaughn, was predeceased; his parents, Stanley and Mattie Vaughn; stepfather, Charles “Chub” Stevens; special uncle, Emery Vaughn; special cousins, Fred Vaughn, Jerry Vaughn and Worley Vaughn.
