December 17, 1953 - October 7, 2020
James (Jimmy) Edward Newman Sr., age 66, passed away unexpectedly from health complications on Wednesday, October 7th,2020 at Washington Hospital Center in Washington, D.C. (He hated that place). He was born December 17th, 1953, in Riverdale, MD to M.L. Newman and Mary Frances (Dixon) Newman. He met the love of his life Darlene (Jessie) Newman in 1977, and was married on March 31st,1997, in Leonardtown, MD. He worked as a Concrete Construction Foreman and Mechanic, for Miller and Long Concrete Construction Company (He loved his work family as much as he loved his own). He was good with his hands and had a knack for trouble shooting any mechanical problem that came about. Jimmy loved life, he truly enjoyed the simple things (Like a triple decker Peanut Butter and Jelly, that’s life). His family and friends were his everything, he would give the shirt off of his back for anyone he met. There wasn’t a time that he would turn down a request for help, and he never showed a bit of frustration, he was always there for everyone. Best time spent for him was eating, chatting, working on cars/lawn equipment and spending time with the ones he treasured the most. Jimmy had a profound effect on many individuals and stepped into many fathers’ shoes for some who didn’t have that type of role model. He was ready and willing to teach anyone how to turn a wrench or drive a car. He is survived by his wife, Darlene; a sister Susan Coakley; a son James (Lisa) Newman Jr.; daughters: Jessica (Tim) Dych, Jordan Newman, Gina Holroyd; Birthday Twin Jena Litten; Grandchildren: Christopher Newman, Aydin Newman, Collin Dych, Jocelyn Dych, Matthew Hodges Jr., Laura Holroyd, Bradley Hall Jr., and Leianna Hall; Great Grandchildren Jenai Holroyd, Kristyl Green, and King Green; and many other nieces and nephews. Jimmy was a good man and loved by many. He will be missed profoundly. A celebration of life will be held privately.
