William Joseph Newman, age 95, passed away in peace on April 25, 2021 in New Braunfels, Texas. A beloved husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. Bill devoted his life to loving, providing and protecting his family, most especially his loving wife, life partner and best friend Jackie. A man of honor, duty and obligation, Bill convinced his father to let him join the Navy at age 17. He proudly served 4 years during World War II defending the country he loved and the beliefs he cherished. Upon his honorable discharge, Bill returned to his hometown of Brooklyn, N.Y. and married his childhood sweetheart on June 21, 1947. Together their union spanned more than 73 years producing five children, 13 grandchildren, and 12 great grandchildren, and countless friends. A man of unshakeable faith, kindness, and compassion, generously shared with his family, friends, and strangers alike. Bill’s dedication to his church, family and community set an example that will long be remembered. revered and repeated. The highest compliment that Bill could ever bestow on anyone was that they they were a “regular guy”. Bill Newman was a “regular guy” and so much more. He will be deeply missed but not forgotten. To those who knew him, the experience was life changing. To those who descended from him the experience was life itself. Thank you Dad. Rest comfortably, confidently assured your race is done. And won.

Memories Timeline


  1. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. I have the warmest memories of your Dad and enjoyed Red Lobster trips :). Prayers to Jackie, Chris and family

  2. I haven’t known you very long, Bill, but my life has been enriched in the short time that I have had the privilege of caring for you each day! I enjoyed many hours of sitting with you and Lainey to relax on the porch, as you read the paper, watched the news, or took a nap. My fondest memory was when I helped you get dressed for the day, and you leaned forward and planted a kiss on my cheek, as you expressed thankfulness for the help. It has been my privilege to be your caregiver these few short months, and you are greatly missed already! My deepest condolences to Jackie, Christine, Glenn, and the rest of the Newman family. Prayers for comfort, strength, and peace………🙏

  3. I will miss you Uncle Bill. I always enjoyed our frequent phone calls, laughing at current events, with most calls ending with you saying, “ I wonder what your brother Bob would say about that”. I am sure that our relatives who went before you were waiting with open arms to greet you, and I know that you are already organizing this rowdy crew! Rest In Peace, my dear uncle.
