ALFRED “SKIP” NEWMAN

GRAND LAKE STREAM – Alfred L. Newman, 79, went home to be with his Lord and Savior on April 14, 2013 with his wife, Sam, at his side.  Skip was born July 30, 1933 to Alfred and Helen (Pierce) Newman in Penn Square, PA where he grew up and raised his family. After retirement he fulfilled his longtime dream and moved to Maine in 1995 with his wife Sam.  From there they never looked back, Skip enjoyed every minute spent in Maine immensely.  He was passionately involved with Grand Lake Stream and with the members of his community. He was so proud of his Grand Laker canoe, which was carefully constructed by Pop Moore and was happiest when his family would travel from near and far to visit his little piece of heaven.  Skip was a member of both Lewy’s Island Lodge #138 A.F. & A.M. in Princeton and The American Legion, William T. Wren, Post 23 in Baileyville.  In addition to his parents Skip was predeceased by his first wife, Bernadette (McGee) Newman.  He is survived by his wife, Ivana “Sam” (Price) Newman, eight children, Stephen Newman and his wife Mary of OH, Sandra (Newman) McCloskey of PA, Scott Newman of HI, Jyll DeLany of CO, T. Jack DeLany of PA, Jayne Fode of CO, Darrin Newman and his companion, Rhonda of PA and Stacey Newhart and her husband Glenn of PA; his sister, Gladys (Newman) Bittner of PA, twelve grandchildren, seven great grandchildren and many friends.  Skip will be sadly missed by all who knew him.  Two separate memorial services will be held later in the spring at Grand Lake Stream Congregation Church with Pastor Ray Morse officiating.  In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Grand Lake Stream Congregational Church, 3 Water St., PMB 18, Grand Lake Stream, ME 04668-4000. Services by Mays Funeral Home, Calais & Eastport.  Condolences and memories may be shared at www.maysfuneralhome.com
