I met Ken Newman in 1974 he was my math & science teacher. From then on he continued to be a part of my life. He was a teacher, mentor and role model for me and many of my friends. We continued to keep in touch up until now. I would call him to see how he’s doing and for any information I might needed at that time, and he would call me to catch up or just talk sports or politics. I loved Ken like a family member he was just a great man, I will miss him dearly, rest well my friend 🙏🏾

Our amazing adventures and relationship started in 1972-73 Kenny Newman was my teacher as he was to so many students at IS 167 in the Treemont section of the Bronx. Newman was known as the mayor of the Bronx! He’s the only caucasian man I have ever met with the ability to walk anywhere without fear! Why you ask? Simply, he was simply Newman Loved by all. Wow! This one truly hurts😭 He’s Family, He’s a Brother, Mentor, My psychiatrist! He watched me have my best Marist College basketball game! One memory from that game as Kenny said “Ron you’re the only one I know who can shoot 13 for 13 free throws in the official game record! But, I will always remind you that you missed one and the other team committed a violation and you got to shoot another and make it! He used to always say Ron you may think you’re perfect. But, I will always remember you missed one☝🏾Dame!!!! I already miss the Mayor of the Bronx😭😭😭😭😭 Condolences to Kenneth D. Newman ❤️family, friends and students🕊🕊🕊😭

First I'd like to extend my sincere condolences to Mr. Newman's family. Mr. Newman was my 6th grade Science teacher in IS 167 many years ago. I myself am now a retired teacher after 32 years, inspired by Mr. Newmans humor and understanding in the classroom. He listened, gave advice, made and built relationships with his students. He went above and beyond the classroom as he'd visit his scholar's neighborhood and partake in the events when he came. I will miss him at Bronx River Day. May my favorite inspirational Science teacher, Rest In God's Loving Arms
Sincerely,
Andrea Cooper

Kenny was a friend to all. He was fun and funny and we always enjoyed being with him. But most of all Kenny was good man with a genuine caring soul. He was always there to help or shop for someone who couldn’t get out or drive someone to an appointment. He was so unselfish with his time and was loved by all. He will be missed and remembered. Rest In Peace our kind friend.

I was blessed to know Kenny more recently. Our friendship developed just prior to the pandemic but that didn’t limit our fun. He was so kind to always include me for theater tickets and even made sure that I was able to receive the vaccine on the same day he did. I was not only the recipient of his kindness, I witnessed the kindness he bestowed on so many here at Wynmoor. We took turns accompanying each other to doctor’s visits and shared many a takeout meal. I will miss this kind, fun, gentle man greatly. May he Rest In Peace and may his fiends and family be comforted by loving memories.
