Kenneth Clarke Newton, born December 20, 1951, in Petersburg, Virginia passed away in his sleep on September 18, 2022, after succumbing to a long illness. He graduated from Petersburg High School class of 1969. He retired from Butterworth’s Furniture in 2017. Kenny’s loves were floating on the jon boat casting a line, painting a landscape on canvas, and most of all chewing your ear off. He was an outstanding man, patient husband, father, and loving grandfather.
He was predeceased by his mother, Lois C. Newton; father, Shelton T. Newton Sr.; brother Shelton “Shelly” T. Newton Jr.; and son, Adam C. Newton.
Kenny is survived by his wife, Tracy Newton; daughters Tanya L. Galmiche, Kimberly L. Eromenok and Michelle C. Motes; and grandchildren, Raven Brantley, Tripp Eromenok, Logan and Madalyn Varner, and Daniel Parton.
Kenny was loved by many and will be greatly missed. However, he will forever live on in the hearts of friends and loved ones.
