March 13, 2021
John James Van Orden, Sr., 83, of Galloway went home with our Good Lord on March 13, 2021. He passed peacefully at home. John is currently survived by his loving wife, Doris; his sons, John Jr. and Edward; his daughters, Lynne, Kathleen, and Valerie; plus 6 grandchildren. He was a high school graduate of New Brunswick High, NJ, for the class of 1956, and has successfully completed several Accounting courses at Rutgers University. John was orphaned as a child along with 3 other siblings. Each child was sent to several working labor farms until they were 18 years of age. He had no parents, no clean home environment, no money, and no love. Even though John was exposed to a childhood filled with torment, neglect, and abuse, he was a devoted family man for his wife and children. He had strong faith in the Lord, and was blessed later in his life. John made absolutely sure that his wife and family would never be exposed to a terrible environment like he endured. He was a dedicated, very hard worker who willingly provided a good life for his family such as wonderful new homes for a solid foundation in developing a strong tightly-knit family environment. John protected, provided, and pastored his family through the Lord's blessings in his life. He was a true and pure servant by giving all of himself for the Lord and family through countless good deeds. John was not only a father, but a friend and brother also. He lived and demonstrated a selfless life filled with love. Through John's hard-working qualities, he earned dozens of employee achievement awards for excellence in work ethics and performance. He held several supervisory leader positions in his 43 years of service. John also was well liked by numerous co-workers and neighbors leading to many friendships and social function activities. John made ample quality time for his family through many pleasurable trips to the seashore, and several camping excursions etching wonderful great memories in our minds and hearts. He was also a member of the Galloway Elks Club. John loved to travel around the world with his loving wife to walk on the Great Wall of China, swam the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, visited the temples and jungles of Southeast Asia, rode the deserts of Morocco, cherished many European destinations, and enjoyed the beautiful turquoise waters of the Caribbean. John left behind a legacy making a positive impact filled with love and numerous good deeds. There is no other person who can replace John for the way he was, and all that he has graciously freely given to family and friends. His quality depth of love far surpasses any quantity of provided wealth that another could have given. His pleasant presence and vibrant smile will be greatly missed.
