Obituary for William Emory Newton

I have fought the good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness. II Tim. 4:7
William Emory Newton, 78, of Watson, LA, went to be with his Lord, Jesus Christ on Saturday, May 4, 2019 surrounded by his family. William served his country in the United States Army. He was co-owner of Newton Brothers Diesel Service in Watson. William and his wife, Gloria were members of Live Oak United Methodist Church and loved their church family and the inspirational preaching of Dr. Mark.

Condolences

Gloria, William was a good man and a good friend of mine. But then you could start by saying "William was a good............" and add just about any noun meaning a family member or someone who knew him and it would work. Like you, I loved William. Of course not in the same way as you do, I loved being in his company and I felt better anytime I was around him. He is, and will continue to be, missed by us all. When I get to heaven he will be one of the first I look up!!

All my memories with you are my favorite. I have so many memories. The most moving, was when you moved me into your living room because you refused to let me go to a nursing home while I recovered from terrible car accident. You and uncle Shane would come during talks lunch breaks to move me so I wouldn’t get bed soars. You even found a way to wheel my bed into the kitchen and washed my hair yourself. I love you so much. My life isn’t the same without you.

Gloria and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I will miss William very much. He was loved by many people including me.
