Dr. Robert "Stewart" Eads, Jr, age 53, passed away on February 2, 2021 after a hard fought battle with kidney cancer. The family will receive friends Saturday, February 27, 2021 at J. Henry Stuhr, Inc. Mount Pleasant Chapel, 1494 Mathis Ferry Road, Mount Pleasant, SC 29464 from 3:00 - 4:30 pm. The memorial service is private.

Stewart was born on February 23, 1967, in Falls Church, Virginia to R. Stewart Eads, Sr. and Sara Freeman Eads. He spent most of his childhood in Atlanta, Georgia, where he graduated from Riverwood High School.

He attended the University of Virginia as an Echol's Scholar. His love for The University led to his lifelong passion for UVA sports. He then went on to earn his Doctor of Medicine degree from the University of Virginia Medical School. He did his residency in Internal Medicine at the Medical University of South Carolina, where he fell in love with Charleston. He spent his career working as an Internist in North Charleston and West Ashley.

Stewart had many interests, including fishing, boating, reading, Broadway shows, volunteering with Special Olympics, watching his daughters play basketball, and his son play lacrosse. The part of his life that made him most proud was his family. He was married for 28 years to his devoted wife, Sharon. He is also survived by his loving children, Christopher, Nicholas, Elizabeth, and Katherine, all of Mt. Pleasant; his parents, R. Stewart and Sara Eads; brother Matthew and his wife Rebecca, nephew Nathan, and nieces Caroline and Anna.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in his name to Special Olympics of South Carolina Area 6. Please make checks payable to SOSC with Area 6 in the memo line and mail to Karen Lockerman 5469 Parkers Ferry Rd, Adams Run, SC 29426.

I retired from the Navy in 1991. Our healthcare was provided by the Navy Hospital at the time, but this was soon to close. My wife and I needed a family physician and had no idea where to start. We got a flyer in the mail about Dr. Eads opening up a practice on Ashley Phosphate Rd. We called for an appointment and were very impressed. That was it, our search was over. We followed him wherever he went. We knew he had health issues, and were troubled when he left. We missed him, he really meant so much to us. We were so sad to hear of his passing. Please know our thoughts and prayers are with his family, God Bless and keep you all.

Dear Sharon, Christopher, Nicholas, Elizabeth, Catherine, Aunt Gracie, Uncle Billy and Eads Family-

It is with a heavy heavy heart I am writing my condolences for Stewart!! I am so sorry to hear of Stewart's passing. What a battle he has fought and with such dignity and courage. He is a true hero in my books and so are you Sharon. Stewart could not have asked for a better care taker and you were always right by his side every step of the way!! He will leave a lasting imprint on so many peoples hearts he has touched whether it be family, friends, co-workers or patients. I will cherish all of our family gatherings over the years and all the fun and laughter that came along with it. His legacy will go on through his beautiful four children that he will now look after every minute of everyday. Never lose faith, you need it more than ever through these trying times and when you need it the most you will know he is with you.
May Stewart always shine down over you from heaven until you reunite again.

Love always Susan & Robbie, and God's blessings to all.

Stewart will be missed by many as his life's influence was without bounds. As I read the other posts he extended his love and compassion to many. Stewart treated others with the greatest of empathy and expressed this in his actions. Memories, his family's, patient's, friend's and mine, will last and be cherished. May God bless you Stewart.

Dr Eads was a very compassionate person. Our mother was a patient of his for a number of years. Her name was Wille D Rabun and he always talked directly to her and he made sure she knew what was going on with her health. She was very elderly and she appreciated him taking the time needed for her to understand.
I, too am identical twin and we would talk to him about the twins and his boys. He could not tell us apart either.
Dr Eads was very proud of his family.
We are so sorry for the loss of Dr. Eads as a husband,father,son and brother. Prayers for his family and friends. May he Rest In Peace.

Dr. Eads was a wonderful doctor very kind and understanding. My mother and I went to him after Dr. Wannamaker passed away. He was very proud of his family. A great person.

Dear Sharon & Family,
It is heartbreaking to hear of Stewart's passing. He went through so much and you were right there by his side. Stewart was a great husband, father and doctor gone much too soon. It was obvious how much Stewart loved his family.
I pray that memories of all the good times will help comfort all of you in the coming days.

I´m so sorry for the family´s great loss. My husband & I went to Dr Eads since he was on Ash Phos Rd & stayed with him all the years afterwards.He was such a kind doctor, so easy to chat with, & was so proud of his family. He showed me pictures from his wallet of his family. I remember when the twins were born. Dr. Eads was always polite & such a wonderful man. I will miss him.
I will be praying for your family in the coming months.

Dear Sharon:

We are so sorry to hear of Stewart's passing!

It is hard to believe that we met you 25 years ago. We have so many wonderful memories of our time with you in Charleston.

Bruce and Stewart always had so much fun going out on the boat, and coming back with...well, not so much fish, but they always had a great time!! We had such good times watching Rachel and Christopher during their first year.

I am so glad that we reconnected during our more recent visits to Charleston, and that we had the chance to have dinner with all of you.

When we look back on our three years in Charleston, you and Stewart are the ones that we think about!

We know that his memory will always comfort you and the kids!!

Laurie and Bruce

We are heartbroken for you and the grandchildren. He loved you and the children with all his heart and that's the reason he fought so long, and you all fought right along with him. We are so blessed that he graciously included us in all the holidays and family celebrations. We will cherish those memories forever.
Love you all so much. Mom and Dad
