Glen Byron Newsom

 

Glen Byron Newsom was born on November 19, 1928 in Chester County, TN the son of the late Ellis and Irene Smith Newsom. 

Mr. Newsom was a 1946 graduate of Bethel Springs High School. 

He was united in marriage to Anna Lee Russell on May 19, 1949. Mrs. Newsom passed away on October 25, 2013 after 64 years of marriage. 

A hard working, loving husband, father and grandfather who will be greatly missed by his family and friends.

Mr. Newsom will be remembered by those who knew him well for his wealth of knowledge on how to repair anything from large equipment to cars, HVAC, electrical, or you name it - chances are he could help you. He loved chocolate drops, circus peanuts, nutty bars, cokes and always had a pocket full of peppermint candies. He loved to read, talk to people, and was quite witty. One reply that comes to mind is when asked how he was doing - he would respond with "Doing without like all us poor folk."
