Todd Joseph Newby, Sr.

July 28, 1961 – December 5, 2015

Todd Joseph Newby Sr. born in Philadelphia on July 28, 1961 peacefully passed away surrounded by his family on December 5, 2015.

Since there have been so many inquiries regarding services or a memorial to Todd, according to his family’s wishes, here are the arrangements. In September of this year Todd completed an extraordinary 3-day climb to Mt. Washington in NH to raise awareness of cancer and to give hope to all cancer patients. On the anniversary of that climb in September, 2016, we will take his ashes to the summit of Mt. Washington and give him back to nature that he dearly loved. All family and friends who would like to join us will be most welcome. A Celebration of his life will follow.

Any donation in his name, Todd Joseph Newby Sr., made to the non-profit VITAS Inpatient Hospice Unit at 1100 S. Courtenay Parkway, Merritt Island, FL 32952 would be sincerely appreciated. They made Todd’s crossing to his new adventure as beautiful and peaceful as possible. He was treated with tender care and respect and the family was given the utmost consideration on the saddest days of our lives. Thank you to our incredible family and friends who are some of the finest people on earth.

  • I miss you so much brother. I know that we could go a long while without talking and I can try to fool myself by saying “he’s just off somewhere and he’ll be checking in soon” but I know you won’t be calling. I know I won’t hear your laugh again. I know there will be no more Christmas’s, Birthday’s or Happy New years. I know our hearts are broken that you had to leave us. Some days I just don’t know how to handel the day as there is such a deep emptiness. I will kiss you every night and every morning as I have been doing since you have been gone. the days are not easier and time does not heal the hurt of missing you. I love you Todd!

    • Nothing will ever fill the hole that he left in our hearts but, together, we will ever keep his memory alive. I love you, darling daughter of mine.

      • I love you Mommy so very much.

  • Todd was always a cute, likable kid… He grew into a handsome wonderful man. I know he has traveled to a better place, and is watching over those who love him. May he rest in peace until reunited with his friends and loved ones once again.

  • I can’t even begin to tell the many stories I have with this man.. Poppa bear…. His daughter Amanda is my best friend and with her came her father…. There isn’t a memory I have of him that wasn’t a life lesson or something he made sure we new before doing AnYTHINg …. If we wanted to go out to hang with friends we had to do the dishes, if we wanted to stay out late we needed to make sure to come home and be quite when entering because no one else should be woken up due to out antics… Even hitch hiking , haha yes hitch hiking we had to go with a boy wether older brother or friend…camping we only needed to bring a blanket he took care of the rest…. I remember on birthdays the kids were never to ask to not go to school…. Simply just not go hahahaha if u asked of course you have to its school….we went to an Awsome concert one year that Todd bought us one year and he told us…. Your teenagers now and be responsible but have fun…. We had fun and yes we were responsible…I could go on for days about poppa bear.. Even to the last day I saw him I got a great big hug and kiss he told me he loved me and would see him soon……I could not have asked for a better life as a teenager with him around I definitely learned so much from this man and met many people along the way…I will always love and miss you Todd I really will
