John Allen Aaron Way, III, age 81, of Mount Laurel, NJ passed away while surrounded by his loving family on Monday, September 2, 2019.

John was born in Letterman General Hospital in Presidio, San Francisco CA on March 1, 1938, son of Air Force Colonel John and Margaret Way. He resided in over 20 different states and countries, including the family’s lands in Prague, OK, but has called Mount Laurel home since 1970. A graduate of Texas A&M with a Bachelor of Science degree in Physics, he joined Sperry Gyroscope after graduation, later joining Naval Civil Service/Department of Defense as one of the founding members of the Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense System program, where he worked for the next 34 years.

In his leisure, he enjoyed cars and riding motorcycles, physical fitness, golfing and science, but most of all was a lifelong enthusiast of classical music.

Above all else, he cherished the time spent with his family and will be deeply missed by those he leaves behind. John is survived by his beloved spouse of 48 years, Marilyn Way (nee Wooten); children, Timothy (fiancée Kelly), Todd (Beth), John Adam Aaron Way and Mia George (Paul); sisters, Melanee Armstrong and Nancy Bixby, niece Kathy Sue Cash and nephews Donny and David Bixby and Dusty Cash, brother-in-law John Wooten; grandchildren, Nicholas, JD, Trevor, Natalie and Tyler; great-grandchildren, Lilly and Ava.
A visitation will be held on Sunday, September 8th from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM immediately followed by the memorial service, at the Mount Laurel Home for Funerals, 212 Ark Road, Mount Laurel, NJ. Final disposition will be private.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in John’s name are appreciated:

As a little girl, I would run & jump into my daddy’s arms when he got home from work. The safety and strength I felt in those embraces are my most cherished memory! My daddy is my hero. He was my personal Superman the strongest, smartest, most handsome man. He had a dry wit and a twinkle in his eye that let you know he was up to something. He was first & foremost a gentleman holding doors, shaking hands & respecting everyone. He had the biggest heart! He opened it up to let us all in and made us his family. He was kind, loving, logical, influential, funny, and so much more. But most of all, he was my daddy, my hero!
