Services for J.R. Stewart were held at St. Genevieve Church in Las Cruces. Mourners also lined a procession route to pay their respects as Stewart's body was taken to be laid to rest.

Stewart served in the Las Cruces Police Department for 35 years, and was described by LCPD officers as being "quite possibly the most loved and respected officer our community has known."
