Correction: Charlie retired from the military at age 37, at 20 years of service. His Vietnam Nam soldiers named him “Gramps” and had the most wonderful things to say about his leadership and service.
Charles was the only one in our immediate family with Auburn hair like our Mom’s sister. We have a lot of Irish and Scottish-British ancestors and Charles’ grandson Sammy Newton has the cutest red hair you’ve ever seen. All of the children and grandchildren produced by Charles and his first wife Flo are good looking, smart, and talented people so his legacy is indeed blessed.

Charlie Newton was my dad - and I was his baby girl. He was my best friend while I was growing up and was a great dad. He was in Vietnam when I was born, and I was 8 months old when he first met me. I apparently didn't start walking until I was 16 months old because my dad would carry me everywhere! I have memories of my dad driving me around in his Chevy Nova when I was four years old and singing "The Most Beautiful Girl in the World" to me as it played on the radio. When I was five or six, doctors thought I had leukemia and had to take a lot of blood work - I refused to take off my coat at the doctor's office unless my dad was there to hold me. My mom had to call him at the base when he was a First Sergeant to leave and come hold me so the nurses could do their job. My first job was at my dad's office cleaning bathrooms, providing receptionist duties, filing, and completing data entry. My dad always told me that I was a good worker and he gave me a raise every year until I went off to college. I wasn't the best teenager in the world, but my dad was patient but stern. Most of my teenage years I was "grounded indefinitely!" but he still always made me feel loved. My dad helped me to be an independent, successful business woman, but he also influenced me to be a good mom, to expect a gentleman for my husband, and to raise my children with love and respect. My dad was kind and generous to those around him, fair and dependable, and he loved Claudie unconditionally. I am glad I had a lot of time with him at the end, but I wish he had recovered and still had time with us on this earth. I love you, Dad. I miss you, but I will see you again in Heaven.

This photo was my brother Charlie in our older sisters wedding. He is second from the left, standing next to our brother, Randy. Sister Elaine Newton Smith had over 1200 guests, so it was a big deal in Houston in 1953. Our siblings had an 18 year spread to the same Mother and Father. My sister Elaine baby sat the 2 boys, Charles and Randy, who were about 9 years younger. Charles and Randy were supposed to babysit me as I was 8 to 9 years younger than them. However, after the folks drove off, they often rode off happily on their bikes as we had nice neighbors for me to visit. After our Dad died from lung cancer, i was only 9 years old. Charles taught me how to act on a date, like letting the boy open doors, pulling out my chair, etc. before he joined the military at age 17 and went off to Korea. It was amazing when he reurned from boot camp and had gotten so strong and mature. He became a Command Master Sgt Major which was quite an accomplishment. My stepfather had Cornell and Co Tax Consultants for many years on East Hardy and Roxella. Our Mother kept that business for Charles after George died. Then she moved it off Little York. Charles took it over after he retired from the army at age 47, and had attained his degree and CPA while in the Army. Mother became his receptionist till she was about 85. He built a nice new building and provided well for his family with all three children completing their college degrees. He told me he never wanted to retire, so i guess it worked out his way even though it hurts for those left behind. Rest in peace, my brother.
