Newell was a kind man who touched the lives of many boys, both as a baseball coach and as a friend. He always had a smile and a kind word. For many years he was our grandson's best friend and neighbor. They shared Newell's goats and garden, and more importantly, they shared their time and love. Their will be many friends in Heaven who will be happy to see him again.
