I write to express my regret at the death of Lowell (Frosty) Newton and extend my sincere condolences to his family. I got to know Frosty early in my days as vice president at the University of Kentucky. He introduced himself to me and came by my office regularly to visit and say hello. I really liked him and he became a good friend. I had great respect for the man and his talents. He was a humble soul with an "aw shucks" manner that I loved. He was a valuable asset to UK as he alone kept the air conditioning running. And since the physical plant was in my area of responsibility, I was very grateful for his expertise and professionalism. Since my retirement several years ago, our paths had not crossed, but I often thought of him and a half dozen other good men like him who kept the UK physical plant running often with little appreciation. I owe him and them a great debt of gratitude. Frosty was always generous with his time and advice. I send my heartfelt condolences to his family and close friends. He was a good man that the University and the community are a better place because he worked there and was a conscience employee who was devoted to his duties. And I am a better man because Lowell Newton came my way. Jack C. Blanton, Ph.D. Retired Senior Vice President for Administration University of Kentucky P.S. I would like my email displayed and made known to his family.
