Richard A. Newman M.D. Obituary
Richard A. Newman, M.D., 87, of Downingtown, passed away on Tuesday, July 3, 2018 at Tel Hai Retirement Community. He was the beloved husband of Nancy Jane Werdelin Newman, with whom he shared 64 years of marriage. Born in Chicago, Illinois, he was the son of the late Henry and Mildred Haaker Newman. Dick was one of the kindest, most considerate, most intelligent men to walk this earth. He graciously helped others through their most difficult circumstances whenever he saw a need. When he had the choice to do what was easy or what was right, he always chose to do what was right. Dick was devoted to his wife and family and his life should be celebrated rather than mourned, though it is hard to achieve this through our tears. Dick was loved more than he knew and will forever be missed. In addition to his wife, Dick is survived by his four sons; John, Kurt (Sue), Rick and Scott (Barb); a sister, Kay Severence (Jay); seven grandchildren and six great grandchildren. A funeral service will be held at 11:00 a.m., Monday, July 9, 2018 at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, 104 S. Village Avenue, Exton, where family and friends will be received from 9:30-10:45 a.m. Interment will be in the church cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to Brandywine YMCA Coatesville, 295 Hurley Road, Coatesville, PA 19320. Arrangements are being handled by the James J. Terry Funeral Home, Downingtown. To send online condolences, please visit www.jamesterryfuneralhome.com.
