WINTER HAVEN - Harold A. Newman, 74, was born May 20, 1941, in Milo, Maine to Harold E. and Louise M. Newman. He attended Milo schools and graduated from Foxcroft Academy in 1959. In addition being a standout athlete in baseball, basketball, and football he also attained the rank of Eagle Scout.
After graduating from the New England Institute of Anatomy, Embalming and Funeral Directing in Boston, Massachusetts, he was married to the former Joyce E. Bradeen and worked for Clark Mitchell Funeral Home in Bangor, Maine. After ten years at Clark Mitchell, he went to work for American Concrete Inc in Veazie, Maine, holding many positions including vice president, and president/general manager. After retirement, he moved with his wife, the former Connie Beals of Ellsworth, Maine to Winter Haven, Florida.
Along with work and raising a family, Harold also was involved in many charitable clubs and causes including the Bangor Kiwanis Club, achieving the 1973 Member of the Year, and club president in 1977, along with being a Mason, and a second section member of the Anah Temple Shrine. In 1986, he was co-chairman of the committee that installed lighting for the Hampden Academy football field.
Harold was an lifelong avid golfer and enjoyed many rounds of golf on various courses throughout Maine and Florida. But our Pop will be most remembered for being our father. He has provided us many life lessons, and humorous memories.
Harold is survived by his wife, Connie of Winter Haven Florida; his daughter, Julie and son-in-law Michael of Christiansburg Virginia; son, David and daughter-in-law Jan of Niceville, Florida; granddaughters, Allison and Valerie; grandson, Derik; great granddaughter, Lily; step-daughter, Shelley; and step-sons, Sean and Kevin. Harold was pre-deceased by his father, Harold; mother, Louise; sister, Evelyn; and brother, Robert. Good bye our Pop, we know a perfect round of golf and cooling off at the 19th hole awaits.
A reception honoring Harold will be held at the Cypresswood Country Club in the club house on Tuesday, September 1, 2015, between 2-4PM.

Not only did I golf a lot of rounds at Hermon with Harold but we shared a passion for collecting baseball cards as well. Hopefully Babe Ruth will sign a card for Harold in person.

Connie and family. So sorry for your loss. I was saddened to hear this news. Harold will be missed by many people. I will miss seeing him and talking with him during his lengthy phone calls. Harold loved golf as much as anyone I know. His golf cart at Hermon Meadow will fondly be remembered as Harold's cart.

Connie, David, Julie and Family,

I am so sorry to hear that Harold has passed. Growing up with Harold as my "second Dad" was nothing less than great. I will always remember that I was chosen to be the flower girl at Harold and Connie's wedding - a memory I will have forever. Harold never failed to greet me with a huge bear hug just to let me know he was happy to see me. I will look back and cherish many memories with Harold and your family. Please know that every one of them is filled with laughter, teasing, and love...just the way Harold would want it.
Love to you all,

Sorry to hear about Hap. He was a bull on our football team at FA as fullback and an all around likable guy. His best sport had to be golf as he excelled at it at Hermon Meadows the few times I played with him. RIP old friend.

So sorry to hear of Harolds passing. He was a very large part of my life growing up as a coach, neighbor, friend, "uncle". Never saw the man have a bad day! He was the type of guy that you knew you could always count on for anything in a pinch. Will never forget him "smoking" the tires on Connies new Berlinetta camaro when I was about 14 yo. He did it to just make some kid laugh. Greatest thing I ever saw at that age!! Great guy..great loss...greatly missed
