Trudy and the Newcomer Family, I was saddened to read about the passing of your Father. May he RIP-My Thoughts
and Prayers go out to You.
Gary L Wickard
thoughts and prayers are with the family of Bill Newcomer. Mike and John, please accept my deepest sympathy in the loss of
your dad. I have memories of him at the ball field with my dad, and he never missed a chance to tease me and make me laugh
when I was a little girl. Again, my condolences to all the family.
May God be with you all. I remember the days back riding dirt bikes and going to endures, camping
out and stopping by the Newcomer camp site telling stories with Bill and the family. God Bless You All.
Trudy, sorry to hear about the passing of your father, God
Bless, home you are well.
We were sad to read of your father's passing. Bill did a lot of home improvement work for us, not only did he do good
work but he was a very friendly and easy-going person. We will miss seeing his truck & "He walks with me"
With sympathy, Jim and Barb DeGaetano
