Dave, I'm am so sorry to read of your Dad's passing. In the last 40 years our paths's crossed several times both informally and formally. Starting with the days when we played against each other on the softball diamond, continuing on to real estate transactions and in probably the best of times when I would see him meticulously caring for the lawn and decorating the home for a special occasion. He was a kind and gentle man and a pillar of strength to the community. He will be missed greatly. May his memory be enternal in the hearts of you and your family.

Carol & Family,
It was a pleasure to have known you my friend. Newt was a WONDERFUL, KIND, CARING and VERY GIVING MAN. Newt never judged anyone and was a friend to all he met. I enjoyed having him as my boss @ Re/Max Family Tree Realtors. Newt will be missed by many but may his memories live on in each and every one of us. Carol, don't forget I'm available for dinner or just to chat if you need someone.
Hugs, Ruthann

Newt Brown was a gentleman and it was a privilege to know him. As County Commissioner, he was my Boss, and we often went at it toe to toe, especially about personnel. He usually won.
But, Newt was a stand up guy who never let politics get in the way. He was fair to everyone, and that,in and of itself, speaks volumes.
Susan and I were unable to make the service, but I am sure that his police brothers and sisters, along with his many friends and loved ones,honored him with the highest praise, as we all do.
