Gandalf the Steward
Jarrickon Half-elven

Ashleigh, the word "steward" does not necessarily mean that someone is filling in for someone else. It also can mean "caretaker," and that is exactly what Gandalf is: he was sent by the Valar to protect the Free Peoples from the threat of Sauron; therefore he is the caretaker, or steward, of Middle-earth.
