A plaque honoring John W. Stewart, a former manager of the Napa Sanitation District, was unveiled at a dedication ceremony Friday morning at NapaSan offices.
Stewart, 68, was killed on May 31, 2018 while crossing Soscol Avenue on foot. A motorist was arrested a year later and charged with vehicular manslaughter.
Some 80 people, including family, friends and colleagues, attended the event. Speakers included Napa Mayor Jill Techel, Napa County Supervisor Ryan Gregory and Tim Healy, NapaSan general manager.
