John A. Radway, Jr.
John passed away peacefully on November 18, 2021 at the age of 85. John was a special person to all who knew him. He is now with his cherished Claire who predeceased him in 2010.
He spent his childhood in Hawaii and his teenage years in Northern California. He was a very curious and intelligent man who graduated from Stanford University with a degree in Philosophy, and a Juris Doctorate Law Degree from Hastings College of the Law. While attending Hastings he met the love of his life Claire.
John practiced law in Honolulu as a prosecuting attorney. Later he returned to his childhood passion of farming as a macadamia nut farmer on the big island of Hawaii. After his parents, John Sr. and Margaret, passed away in Hawaii during the 1980's, he and Claire moved to Arizona to be closer to her folks in Prescott. They eventually settled in Wickenburg over 35 years ago. John loved the town and especially the people who lived there.
John was an extraordinarily giving person. During his lifetime he gave generously both monetarily and especially his personal time and energies to the charities he came to believe represented the best of human existence. He created the Claire and John Radway Foundation to continue this giving philosophy long into the future.
John will be missed by everyone who had the privilege to know him.
