Joshua E. Newstat Obituary
August 13, 1976 - March 15, 2016 Joshua Erin Newstat, 39, was born on August 13, 1976 and found peace on March 15, 2016. He entered Berkeley as a freshman and was an active member of Kappa Sigma Fraternity. He graduated from UCLA as a proud Bruin. Josh earned his law degree at Loyola Law School. Prior to becoming a founding partner of the law firm of Lessem & Newstat, Joshua spent nearly seven years as a highly respected Deputy Attorney for the Ventura County Public Defender's Office. Josh's door was open to anyone who needed his help, especially the underdog. This was true in both the practice of law and dealing with the personal lives of his many friends and loving family. Josh was very active with NAMI: National Alliance on Mental Illness, where he served on the Board of Directors for six years and was volunteering and helping families during their time of difficulties. Joshua is survived by the loves of his life, his daughter Elora Doris Newstat (6) and Elijah Jack Newstat (3), and their loving mother Freya Newstat; his parents Marsha and Gene Newstat; his soul mate and sister Rachel Weinstein (Mark); grandparents Rose Newstat and Martin Newstat; adored Aunt Susan and Uncle Neil Stone, Aunt Shelly and Uncle Jon, and Uncle Neal Newstat, and numerous cousins, friends and colleagues. A mensch who was loving, strong, persistent, loyal, caring, funny, handsome and brilliant, he lives within us forever. Services at Eden Memorial Park, Sunday, March 20th at 1:00 pm.
