    Mr. Newman was an incredible figure in Hendersonville. He made me believe that he and his brothers won WW2! And they did. God Bless.

    “Has anyone told you how beautiful you look today?” How we will all miss those words, delivered as no one else can. No telling what sort of mischief the Newman Bros are cooking up in heaven. I can just hear Mr. Henry saying, “Dink, it is about time that you showed up.” May peace be with John, Cheryl, Linda and their families as they celebrate the life of such a wonderful man.

    Linda, Cheryl & Johnny, Mother told me last night about the passing of your Dad. How sad it makes me to learn almost weekly now about the great ones of Hendersonville leaving us. I have such wonderful memories of growing up in your home and how much I loved your parents. Your Dad was a legend. You have our deepest sympathy.

    On5/22/2010 I awoke Dink. As he opened his eyes, he began to smile! He called me Clyde as he always has. We talked of school days, horses, etc. I asked him why he was there. He said he couldn’t walk. We had a really good visit. I’m glad I awoke him. I’m glad we were long time friends. I appreciate all he has done for my old home town. I will never forget him and I will miss him. Claude M Reese

    My husband and I met Mr. Newman at Cardiac Rehab at Hendersonville Medical Center in June 2006. He was always smiling and always had something pleasant to say to everyone. Everyone there seemed to enjoy being in his presence and listening to his stories. Mr. Newman was not there every one of the three days a week my husband went for over four months, but we certainly did enjoy his company on those days he did come to exercise.
    He was such a great asset to Hendersonville and Sumner County and will be missed.

    A true gentleman, statesman and public servant has gone to serve a higher power. Dink will be missed by all that knew him. His public service will effect thousands that will never know him.
