William (Bill) James Newman of Hernando, FL, passed away peacefully April 27, 2019. He was born in Fort Worth, Texas where he was adopted by his late parents, William A. and C. Marjorie Newman. His late sister, Marsha (Sha) was also adopted nine years later.

Upon graduation from Hilliard (OH) High School and attending Western Kentucky University on scholarship, he was employed by NAPA-Genuine Parts Company for 43 years where he covered much of the Eastern United States and earned many awards.

In addition, he was a very dedicated coach for his daughters' travel soccer teams where he touched many lives; he also never missed their swim meets all over the country.

Left to cherish his memory is his wife of almost 50 years, Nancy Scott Newman, and his loving daughters Lori (Doug) Carpenter, Debbi (Kevin) Kube and Angi (John) Savage. He also leaves his grandchildren Kenny and Kara Kube, Makenzie and Chelsi Carpenter and Will and Ellie Savage. Sophi, his 13 year old labradoodle, a retired therapy dog, will also miss him greatly.

A private celebration will be held with his family. Donations can be made in his name to a charity of choice or The American Heart Association.

Nancy, I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. I so much appreciate you and Bill and the friendship you had with my dad, Frank. Bill was always kidding around, keeping the conversation going with all the guys at the one end of the breakfast table at Chicken King. I'll keep fond memories of Bill and all the meals we shared during my visits to FL.

My condolences go out to Nancy, the family & all of the friends of Bill. Bill was a great member of the Hilliard High School of Ohio, class of 1963. An all around great friendly guy who was also a very good basketball player in High School. He was also very lucky to fall in love & marry Nancy Scott from my class of 1962 at Hilliard High School & stay together throughout all the years. R.I.P. my friend, you will never be forgotten!
