With the heaviest of hearts, I am sad to announce on behalf of my family the passing of a great, kind and benevolent man.
My Father Brian Alfred Newman born 19 June 1949 passed away 25 September 2018 at 0230hrs at the Logan Hospital, he was 68 years of age.
Brian Alfred Newman
By his side to the very end was his Wife Carol, my Wife Danielle and myself.
I want to thank my Sister Rebecca and her partner Kylie, and their family for supporting Dad and coming to see him in his final hours.
Dad's Sister Olive and her Daughters Annette and Yvonne (Skip) stayed with Dad for marathon hours ensuring he was never alone whilst giving Carol, Danielle and I an opportunity to prepare and care for our beautiful children who will all miss their weekly visits and lunch with Pa.
Dad (Pa) will be never more deeply missed than by our beautiful children Leila (12), Angelique (11), Cooper (10), Olivia (9), Sophia (4) and Gabriella (11 months).
Our Cousin Neville was a great comfort to Dad over many years of support and was another supportive family member to attend to Dad in his final hours, they were more than Cousins, they were mates for a lifetime, and the very essence of modern Newman men.
Dad loved you all and I am personally and forever grateful for all that you have each done for him during this final stage of his life.
A Church service for Brian Alfred Newman will be conducted at 2pm on Friday 5 October 2018 at the Quirindi Anglican Church, followed by a graveside committal at the Quirindi Lawn Cemetery.
The Lord created man in his own image, but I was created in my Father's image, he was my hero.
Rest in peace Dad.
Brian 'Sam' Newman
