Obituary for Stewart Dale Abshire

Stewart Dale Abshire was born in Maywood, California on March 10, 1958 and passed at his home in Cypress, TX on July 12, 2018. He was preceded in death by his son Jason Thomas Abshire and step-father, Rodney Harst.

Dale is survived by his parents, Bill Abshire and Glyndia Gayle Harst; wife, Sheila Creason Abshire, children, Destiny John Abshire, Elaina Shari Abshire, Logan Matthew Creason and wife Nicole; grandsons, Jayden Abshire Rakes and Zayn Hassan Abshire; sister, Sherry Hardy and husband Randy; brothers, Gary Abshire and wife Melody, Jim Abshire and wife Rhonda, Paul Holley and wife Amy, Nathan Abshire and wife Chasity.

Dale was born in California and having had a father serving in the Air Force, he was then blessed as a young child to live in various countries. He liked to share stories about living in Greece, sitting on the steps of the Parthenon and getting hot fresh bread from the local bakery.

Dale’s teenage years were spent in Louisiana and Texas. He played various team sports and was fond of fast cars. At the age of 18, Dale joined the Navy and served on the USS Kennedy and the USS America as an airman. His duties included hooking the aircraft to the catapult in preparation for take-off and later he moved to the flight control tower, updating the aircraft status board for the Air Boss. In 1982, Dale received an honorable discharge.

After leaving the Navy, he began a career in the oil field business working on the rigs in various capacities. Dale was blessed to be able to work and travel the world. He was proud that oil companies would specifically request him for his hard work and expertise.

When not working, Dale loved golfing, cooking and spending time by the pool with friends and family. Friday nights playing poker was one of his favorite things to do. There were many trips to the casinos, cruises to the Virgin Islands and various Caribbean destinations as well as vacations in Cabo. He also enjoyed working around the house, landscaping the yard, building things by hand, as well as wood working. He spent the last week of his life reuniting with an old Navy buddy, celebrating the 4th of July with family and friend’s poolside in the backyard grilling and lighting fireworks. Although, Dale has left this physical world and now is at peace in heaven, he lives on in the lives of those he met and loved in this life and will see again in the next.

A Memorial Service will be held at 7:00 PM on Friday, July 20, 2018 at Messiah Lutheran Church, 11522 Telge Rd, Cypress, TX 77429.
