Please express my condolences to your family. I didnt know Mr Newman, but I acquired an oil painting with his name on it. In reading his obituary, I noticed that he was an oil painter so I thought this painting may be his. I can be contacted at webcarpenter@gmail.com. If I am wrong, please accept my apologies for this intrusion. Sincerely, Terry Green

Dear family, Just wanted to say I'm so sorry for your loss , he had a nice life. My dad, Terrence Newman, cousin of Alfred died in 1990 at 59 years old. I would imagine he would look a lot like Alfred, they did resemble. I can remember Uncle Benny giving me pixie hair cuts way back in the day and I'm now 63. I miss them. Wishing you all loving thoughts and prayers. Andrea Newman Blackwell ablackwell53@gmail.com
