Love and memories last forever...
  • Passed away on November 27, 2016 .

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 was talking about Dr Stewart to an associate of mine about his knowledge of American History and the tid bits he passed on to me about some of our founding fathers. I decided to look him up and found not only that he passed 2 years ago but that while living in Barnsboro for 27 years he was living in town next door. What a shame. I would have loved to stop by and see him again. That man touched me like very few have ever done besides my father. His example of courage to do what he believe in set an example that I still follow today. DR D, thank you for being my friend when a young man needed help finding his way in a new school and environment. I think of you often. And now its too late to tell you what you meant to me. Good bye my friend.

One year later, I am sure your family misses you each and every day. It is without a shred of doubt I believe you are searching, seeking, and discovering amazing and wonderful things more grand than any of our imaginations could conceive. Enjoy your journey; remember us here in the tangible.

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!
