William David “Bill” Newton, age 74, of the Wysor Valley section of Honaker, Virginia passed away February 17, 2020. Born September 20, 1945 in Rochester, New York, he was a son of the late Oscar J. and Mae Louise Ashby Newton. He spent most of his life in Rochester, New York, prior to moving to Honaker, Virginia in 2003. He was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Richlands, Virginia. He was a man that always enjoyed being around people. He was never idle and always had a project that he was working on, whether it be carpentry, landscaping or tending to his flowers and vegetable gardens. He enjoyed sharing the fruit of his labor with his friends and neighbors. He also had a love for trains and was formerly employed as an automotive parts salesman. One of his greatest joys came from being a HAMM Radio operator. His handle was KJ4UEK and he was president of the Russell County Amateur Radio Association.

This tree is in memory of one of our favorite, Uncle Billy, that always made us smile and feel loved. He was truly a icon in our family.

Aunt Betsy and family, we are so very sorry for your loss. We have so many awesome memories of family reunions at Mendon Ponds Park and the wacky baseball games that ended with Uncle Billy chasing everyone trying to get on base all over the field! Those were the best times of our lives. GOD blessed us with such an incredible family that time and distance could never take away the bond we have. Our thought and prayers are with all of you.
