September 5, 1940 – December 30, 2022
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Robert Alexander Newman on Friday December 30th, 2022.
Bob spent his final years in Calgary in order to be near family, but he was a long-time resident of Milton raising two kids and owning a shoe store on Main Street called Robert Newman Shoes. His life was spent running a successful business; volunteering with many different organizations; coaching and playing with numerous sports teams and spending time with family. “Mr. Shoe” was an outdoor enthusiast who loved time in his boat or being off in the bush somewhere in his gator. A husband; dad; friend and most importantly Grandpy. He will truly be missed by many.
He is pre-deceased by his loving wife and partner Marie; oldest daughter Myrna; brother Ken; sister Lillian and brother-in-law Doug. He is survived by his sister Anne; daughter Carol; son-in-law Steve, four loving grandkids: Ethan, Lauren, Hannah, and Emma, and many adoring nieces and nephews.
Bob lived life for family and friends, so a celebration of his life will be planned for early summer. Missing you today and always.
