John D. Stewart, II
  • Date of passing: Nov 27, 2016
Love and memories last forever...

John Stewart, II, “Jack”, 21 year resident of Mullica Hill, passed on Nov. 27, 2016.

Loving father of Ashley and Colin and their mother, his cherished wife, Catherine Stewart of 28 years, dear father of Suzanne and Jack Stewart and survived by their mother Pat Lambiase. Devoted grandfather of Leah Hnosko and Kimmie, Eden, Alec and Ryan Miller. He was predeceased by his parents Amelda and John DeWayne Stewart.

Above all, John was a devoted, passionate caring man who whole-heartedly cherished his family and friends, giving endlessly to those he loved. He believed that love was giving all that you have until there was nothing left, and then our spirit would be set free. John lived his life accordingly.

John was an Associate Professor with a PhD and taught History for over 45 years at Camden County College. He sought knowledge for its' own sake, constantly exploring the workings of the mind and the universe itself. 

John was a scholar, writer and poet, with a rare intellect whose knowledge and imagination knew no bounds. In reflection of his self,  "If I see further than others, it is because I have stood on the shoulders of giants. But even then, I feel as if a child upon the seashore while the great ocean of truth lay undiscovered before me."

John's journey has not ended. He will forever seek the truth and touch the souls of others. We all have been blessed that he has touched ours. He will remain forever and always in our hearts.

Services will be private at the convenience of the family.

To honor John, in lieu of flowers, contributions made in the name of “Gift of Love Education Fund” PO Box 473, Mullica Hill, NJ 08062-0473 would be greatly appreciated.

"I love you and miss you everyday <3 I wish i could have returned the love and dedication as a father that you gave me as your daughter, but i will not live in regret only rejoice in the happy times you gave me and the light you brought into my life!"

This tribute was added by Tina Lacava on 2nd December 2016

"I was privileged to have taken some classes taught by John Stewart back in the 90’s. He was imaginative, controversial, inspiring, but most of all brilliant.
He once said (upon the death of one of his own teachers) that one of the most important things a teacher could know was that he'd made a difference in any student’s life; that he’d had a positive effect on them. Well, John, I can tell you that you had a great effect on my life and on my husband’s life. You certainly made a difference; you forced people to think!
May The Lord bless you in your new home with so many answers you sought after; and may He give you a whole new field of discovery!"
