WARREN, Ohio - Calling hours and funeral service is scheduled for former Trumbull County Common Pleas Judge John Stuard.

Just a little over a month after his retirement in December, Stuard was taken to a Warren hospital Thursday for chest pains and shortness of breath and he later died.

Calling hours are set to take place Sunday night from 4 to 7 p.m. at Sample & O'Donnell Funeral Home in Sharon, Pa. A funeral service will be held at the same location Monday morning beginning at 11 a.m.

Members of the Trumbull County legal community say the loss was too soon.

"We're obviously completely shocked that this happened so quickly," Judge Andrew Logan says, Trumbull County Common Pleas.

Logan remembers when Stuard called him to take over his county court seat before joining the court of common pleas.

"He was my mentor when I first came down here obviously and on the bench, he was an informed decision maker, he didn't at any point in time make a decision that wasn't well thought out and based on the facts," Logan said.

Stuard highly respected professionally and personally. His colleagues say he left a lasting impression on their lives.

"He was such a kind man, humble, respectful, everybody loved him and he's going to be sadly missed, it's just a heartbreaker," Rochelle Dykes says, a Trumbull County sheriff deputy who spent her days watching over Stuard's courtroom.

It was no secret that Stuard was a fan of the Civil War era. He studied it and it eventually turned into a hobby.

"He also made his own, manufactured his own cannons and shot those off," Logan said. "One of his cannons was actually in the movie Gettysburg."

Family say his death came as shock and they're still processing what to do next.
