Stewart Glyn Coomes, 90, of Owensboro, passed away Wednesday, July 19, 2023 at the Carmel Home. He was born in Daviess County to the late Steve and Verda Hayden Coomes.
Mr. Coomes owned and operated Stewart Coomes Construction for more than fifty years. His ability is represented by many commercial buildings and homes in the Owensboro area that were either designed, drafted, and/or built by him. Stewart was a licensed appraiser, a real estate broker and a member of Immaculate Catholic Church for more than 60 years. He was also an avid and faithful YMCA member who especially enjoyed basketball and racquetball. In recent years he continued his exercise while living at the Carmel Home where he also enjoyed many card games and bingo. Many residents will miss his great sense of humor and the joy he brought by sharing jokes and friendly conversations.
Mr. Coomes was preceded in death by a sister, Rose Alma Vannote and a brother, Gary Stephen Coomes.

Mr. Coomes was continually surrounded by the beautiful love and prayers of his grandchildren and great-grandchildren who brought him such joy.
