His involvement ranged from president of the Dallas Citizens Council to board member of the State Fair of Texas.He also served on several national banking groups.
Among Mr. Stewart's greatest accomplishments was the 1965 marriage of Frito Lay and PepsiCo, where he served on the board for 31 years.The merger was significant not only from a banking standpoint but also for its impact on the local business environment.
"Whenever we had any problem or were looking to buy someone, Bobby was involved," said Donald M. Kendall, former chairman and CEO of PepsiCo.

Robert H. Stewart III
He helped transform the city and banking
Robert H. Stewart III never wanted to lose and never seemed to slow down during his long career as a Dallas banker.Mr. Stewart, who died early Thursday at age 76, was part of the generation of civic leaders who propelled the city ahead at a dynamic pace in the 1960s and '70s.
He was named the head of the old First National Bank when he was still in his 30s and pushed the once sleepy Dallas company to become one of the state's biggest financial institutions – InterFirst Corp.
Mr. Stewart's drive to expand banking in this region opened financial doors for large corporations to move their headquarters here.He built close relationships with Frito-Lay, Dresser Industries, Southwestern Life, and other major firms that called Dallas home.
But the failures that brought down so many banks should not take away from the important work Robert Stewart III did during a career that spanned more than four decades.He was still a vice chairman of Bank One Texas.
Mr. Stewart will be remembered as a devoted community builder as well as a financial leader.He served as chairman of the board of governors at Southern Methodist University and as head of the Dallas Citizens Council and Dallas Assembly.He was a co-chair of the successful $156 million fund-raising drive that set the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center on course to become one of the nation's premier research institutions.
Mr. Stewart's death closes another chapter of an era when visionary bankers helped Dallas become one of the nation's leading cities.
