NEWMAN, Edgar Earl It is with great sadness that the family of Edgar Earl Newman announces his passing after a lengthy illness, on Sunday July 4, 2021, at the age of 84 years. His battle with serious medical issues for many years showed his courage in facing life challenges with a smile. Despite the pain, he stayed strong until the end. Earl will be greatly missed by his devoted wife of 64 years, Becky and his children, Alan (Cindy) and Daryl (Caroline). He will also be fondly remembered by his 4 grandchildren, Michelle Martini (Ryan Hayes), Tyler Newman, Amanda Gutknecht (Josh) and Sarah Little (Cooper), and his eight great-grandchildren, Lee, Daniel, Eliza, Samson, Madeline, Charlie, Abigail and Amelia. At his request, no service will be held. Donations can be made in Earl’s honor to LeBonheur Children’s Hospital in Memphis Tennessee. Earl graduated from Millington Central High School in 1954, served in the National Guard and began his career in the heavy equipment business as an operator and mechanic. He was well known in the heavy construction industry in the West Tennessee, Eastern Arkansas and North Mississippi area. His work and experience allowed him to progress to the General Manager position at Midco Machinery in Memphis where he retired in 1989. After retirement, he spent his time loving on his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He attended Bellevue Baptist Church as his health allowed. He loved to sing gospel songs and share his gift. When Tomorrow Starts Without Me… When tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand, That an angel came and called my name and took me by the hand; The Angel said my place was ready in Heaven far above, And that I’d have to leave behind all those I dearly love. But when I walked through Heaven’s Gate, I felt so much at home, For God looked down, smiled at me, and told me “Welcome Home”. So when tomorrow starts without me, don’t think we’re far apart, For every time you think of me, I’m right there in your heart.
