Virgil Lee Newman, 68, of Kansas City, Mo., passed away peacefully December 1, 2020 at home.
Virgil was born April 5, 1952 to Elizabeth Ann Still and the late Virgil Jean Newman in Marceline, Mo.
He graduated from Oak Park High School in 1970. Virgil settled in the Northland for the majority of his life. He worked as a Dock Worker for Roadway Express and was a proud Teamster of Local 41. He went on to retire in 2007. Virgil was an avid outdoorsman who loved hunting, fishing, and later in life just enjoyed exploring God’s green earth. He defiantly passed those traits on to his boys and grandkids. He also enjoyed attending his retiree breakfasts and luncheons monthly. In his spare time, he loved playing cards and dominos any chance he got! No matter what Virgil lived each day with a smile and a positive thought!
Virgil is survived by his mother, Elizabeth Ann Edwards of Kearney, Mo.; his two sons, Virgil Gene Newman of Plattsburg, Mo., and Alvah Lee Newman and wife, Jaci Ann Newman of Kansas City, Mo.; his grandchildren, Paige Newman, Chase Newman, Hunter Newman, and Jaylen Newman; his sisters, Janet Richards of Cameron, Mo., Jeanette George of Profitstown, Ill., Cyndi Masuch of Olathe, Kans., and Mary Hilner of Many, La.; his brothers, Gary Mayabb of Kansas City, Mo., and Mike Mayabb of Kansas City, Mo.; along with many other close family and friends.
In addition to his father, Virgil Jean Newman, Virgil Lee was preceded in death by his beloved dog, Duke that passed away earlier this year.
A Celebration of Life will be scheduled after the first of the year.
