With deepest sorrow, we announce that Noland Wade Stewart II (King Louie), age 23, our most beautiful and beloved son, brother, grandson, uncle, nephew, family member and friend passed away on Monday October 5, 2020.
A native of Ponchatoula, LA, Noland moved to Huntington Beach, CA with his mom and step dad in 2012. Growing up in Louisiana, Noland loved hunting and fishing and riding his skateboard and dirt bike. After moving to California Noland immediately fell in love with the ocean and the mountains, joining the surf team in high school, developing a love for snowboarding and finding his true passion in diving. Noland had already completed his rescue diver certification and was on his way to becoming a Dive Master Instructor.
Noland loved being with his family and friends. He was the life of the party and always made sure that every person felt loved and welcome. He was so funny, outgoing, passionate, fiercely independent and loyal. We will always remember his beautiful smile and gazing eyes, his infectious laughter and crazy dances.
Noland leaves behind his mother and stepfather, Tara and Brian Trombley, his sister and brother-in-law-to-be, Jayde and Sal Portera, his father, Noland Stewart Sr and his wife Jessica Shirey, his grandparents, Evelyn Moreland and Laurel and John Brink.
Also surviving are his many aunts and uncles, cousins, nephews and nieces.
Noland always made sure that those he loved were taken care of. It is out of that love that in lieu of flowers the family has set up a GoFundMe page to continue his work of helping others. https://gf.me/u/y36r6i
