When I think of Mr. Newman, the bottom line can be stated very simply: he was without question one of the finest people I have ever had the privilege to know. He and his family were an integral part of the Schulenburg community and touched the lives of so many people in so many different ways. My deepest condolences to Mrs. Newman, Keith, Kendall, and the rest of Mr. Newman’s family.
