February 11, 1943 - March 20, 2020
John Weir Tway was born on February 11, 1943 in Oklahoma City, OK to the late R.R. Tway II and Peggy Tway. The angels took him home in the early morning hours of Friday, March 20, 2020. His work ethic began at an early age. He graduated from Harding High School and continued his studies at OCU, OSU, and OU where he earned a B.S. in Engineering, M.A., and PhD in Economics and Finance. He joined the Navy and served two tours in Vietnam as a Lt. J.G. He was proud of his team of Seabees and the work they did building schools for the children. His career and knowledge were in banking, teaching, construction, and journalism for the Oklahoma Business Bureau. His career culminated in being a certified financial planner and Professor of Economics teaching at Amberton University in Texas. He really enjoyed teaching his students and helping people with their finances. After retiring he got to really enjoy golf, tennis, and gardening. He derived almost as much pleasure from watching Bob and Scott Tway as he did playing golf or tennis himself. He especially enjoyed being apart of the Senior Tennis Group at Brookhaven County Club in Dallas, Texas with all his friends. He leaves behind his beloved wife and best friend Mona Sue Tway, four children Lezlie Stewart, Karen Street, Ray Corbitt, and Lisa Walker. Grandchildren Jeff Street, Monica Aquilar and husband Alex, Logan Street, Lindsay Jerome and husband Justin. Great grandchildren Caiden, Collin, Jack, Asher, and Mason. He also leaves behind two brothers Bob Tway and wife Molly, Will Hector and wife Monique. A celebration of life will be held in the coming year.
