Obituary for Donald Brown "Don" Newsome

Mr. Donald “Don” Brown Newsome, age 80, passed away Wednesday, January 9, 2019 at Tucker Hospice House.

The family will receive friends from 12:30 to 2 pm Saturday, January 12 at Parkwood Baptist Church. A service to celebrate his life will be held at 2 pm with Pastor Michael Waters officiating.

Don was born November 17, 1938 in Cabarrus County, a son of the late Fred Morris Newsome and Gladys Brown Newsome. He was also preceded in death by a brother, Bobby Newsome.

Don retired from Flowers Bakery after many years of service and was an active member of Parkwood Baptist Church. He also enjoyed fishing and (back in the day) was a pretty good softball player. He played for several church teams such as Harmony Methodist, Wilmar Park and Parkwood Baptist. It was a pretty special time, when he pitched against the King and his Courts, a 4-man professional softball team at Webb field. There are fond memories of "dad the coach" when his boys played ball as well.

Those left to cherish Don’s memory are his loving wife, Sylvia Spears Newsome; sons, Mark Newsome and wife, Monica and Jeff Newsome and wife, Marcia, all of Kannapolis; grandchildren, Jenifer Newsome Morgan and husband, Matthew, Shea Newsome Haas and wife, Jessi, and Wryn Newsome; brother, John Newsome; many other relatives and friends, including his most special canine friend, Tia, who will miss Don dearly.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Parkwood Baptist Church, 1069 Central Drive NW, Concord, NC 28027.
