GOLDSBORO, N.C. - Charles Arthur Newton Sr., 100, formerly of Bristol, Vt., died on May 17, 2013, in Goldsboro, N.C., of natural causes. He was born in Bristol on April 3, 1913, to Timothy and Anna (Flint) Newton, the fifth of eight children. He joined the Navy after high school and married Dorothy Timms on May 23, 1941. She predeceased him in 1987 and in 1989 he married Loudel Johnson, who survives him. Shortly after their first daughter, Nancy, was born, they moved to Connecticut, where he worked for New Departure and had three more children. After retiring from New Departure in 1972 he moved back to Starksboro where his family says he took great pride in his lawn and gardening skills. Relatives say he was an avid outdoorsman who loved to hunt and fish and play with his water spaniel, Sport. He was a member of the Sodbusters Horseshoe Club and loved to play cards whenever possible. He hosted the first of many Newton family reunions on his farm in Starksboro in 1978. After Dorothy passed away he reconnected with Loudel, who had also lost her spouse around the same time. After he re-married, he split his time between Tampa, Fla., Rochester, N.Y., and Goldsboro, N.C. He is survived by his wife of 24 years, Loudel, of Goldsboro, N.C.; four children, daughter Nancy Freiheit (Ted) of Mocksville, N.C., daughter Sallie Bluff (Ron) of Floresville, Texas, son Tim Newton (Mary) of Largo, Fla., and son Chuck Newton (Linda) of Mocksville, N.C.; nine grandchildren; 14 great-grandchildren; and three great-great-grandchildren. He is also survived by one sister, Mary Woodward of South Burlington.
He was predeceased by three brothers, Guy, Wallace and Flint; and three sisters, Hazel Hunt, Ruth Manila and Gertrude Needham. A memorial service celebrating his life will be held on Aug. 10, 2013, at 1 p.m., in Bristol, at Green Mountain Family Campground. Contributions in his memory can be made to Sodbusters Horseshoe Club, c/o Mike Brown, 54 Mountain Terrace, Bristol, VT 05443. For more information, contact Sean Havey at (802) 453-5599.
