Earl D. Newton

April 18, 1931 ‒ July 29, 2016

Fredericktown, Ohio

Earl D. Newton, age 85, of Fredericktown, OH, passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family on Friday, July 29, 2016 at the Country Court Nursing Home in Mount Vernon, OH. He was born on April 18, 1931 in Mount Vernon, OH, to the late Elmer and Elizabeth (Earl) Newton.

Earl was a very gifted carpenter and loved making furniture for friends and family. He also has done a lot of the woodworking that can be seen at the Mohican Resort.  Many of the local Amish would study his work and try to duplicate it.  Earl also built an elaborate gazebo and he and his wife Ann were married in it.  He never met a stranger and he will be greatly missed by all that knew him.

Earl’s wishes were to have no services.

  • I always liked my uncle Earl. I didn’t get to see him so much after my teenage years but I’ll always cherish the times the Newton men spent at deer camp in Kane, PA and the time he took Dave and I up there to work on the “cabin”. He showed my how to shoot a bow and arrow that time which turned into a great passion for me until this very day. In later years I would see him in town he always seemed happy to see me. He was such a nice guy. That whole generation of Newtons starting with my father gave so much to the community. Homes built by my dad, Earl, and the rest as well as the many people who they gathered as friends are a solid reminder that they made a difference. You will be missed Uncle Earl.

  • My deepest sympathy to the family. Enjoyed his visit with Ann to Texas. He always had a smile on his face.
