  1. Prayers for the family. George is my uncle and he was married to my mothers sweet sister Evie. I remember visiting them on occasion as a child. He was a very kind person and will be greatly missed.

  2. George was such a nice man. Have known him since the 1970’s when he worked at Public Service and came into Charlie’s Cafe where I waited tables. Sorry For Your Loss.

  3. To Dave, Jeff, Chris, and all other surviving family members of George Newman, I offer my humble condolences. I had enough interactions with George to realize what a special person he was. His unflappable demeanor was his calling card. However, my respect for him grew as I witnessed his abiding love he had for Evelyn. This patriarch will be missed.

  4. Dave, Jeff, Chris and family. I have always had the highest respect for George and Evelyn. I have great memories as they treated me as one of their own when I was around them. George even remembered me a few years ago when our paths crossed. He was always so kind and uplifting to talk to. He will be missed. Gloria and I send our condolences and prayers.

  5. My condolences to George’s family. He was a special person. I got to know him while shooting skeet and dove hunting with my Dad and Uncles Bob, Keith and Bill. A true gentleman and excellent shot!

  6. To all the Newman family, Sue and I are so sorry for your loss. George Newman was a great guy and friend. I had many good times with the Newmans hunting in South Dakota and locally. George will be missed by all.

  7. Our condolences to the entire family. So many great memories of spending time with him and the Newman family while growing up. George was a positive influence not only on his immediate family but so many of the friends of his children. May he rest in peace.
