The son of Hungarian immigrants, Mr. Newman served in the U.S. Army Reserves. He joined the Croda sales department in 1973. A man of many talents, Mr. Newman’s true gift was his sense of humor and he had a joke or story for every occasion.
He is survived by his wife of 38 years, Roni, two sons, Zachary and Alan, two daughter-in-laws and two granddaughters. Donations may be made to the Medical Intensive Care Unit of the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, 8 Easton Ave, New Brunswick, NJ, 08901-1925.
