It is with profound sadness that we share the news of the passing of Mr. Richard A. Stewart. The honorary mayor of Pocahontas Island deeply loved his home and his city. Beloved and respected by so many, he leaves an indelible, unmatched, and inspiring legacy to the City of Petersburg, having contributed so much during his extraordinary lifetime.  
Through his museum, a treasure trove of artifacts that showcases over 200 years of Black History, he shared his passion and expertise of Black History and the Civil War, enthralling visitors with his stories and intricate knowledge. Through his consistent attendance at City Council meetings and his steadfast work in the community, he showed his unwavering commitment to the betterment of the city and our citizens.  
We offer our sincere and heartfelt condolences to his family, friends, and the citizens of Petersburg at this sad time. We will eternally be grateful for the life of Mr. Stewart, may he now rest in peace.
