Interment Information


Our hearts were filled with sorrow when our son, nephew, and friend Frank Anthony Newman, departed this life on Sunday March 25, 2017 at Chesapeake General Hospital, after suffering a long illness. Frank was born on May 7, 1965 in Syracuse, NY. The son of Yvonne Newman and grandson of Hester Jones, he was an only child. He received his lower education in the Syracuse School System, then went on to pursue a higher education at Norfolk State University in Virginia. In his younger years, Frank attended Bethany Baptist Church in Syracuse with his mother Yvonne and grandmother Hester. While he was not a member of a particular church in Virginia at the time of his passing, he would visit various congregations to fellowship. Frank had faith and loved the Lord! Frank was a fun- loving individual with an infectious smile. Anyone who encountered him was sure to leave with a lasting impression. He developed many long lasting friendships over the years. Although those ties may have been distant at times, they were never to be broken, for Frank had such a warm personality that those who knew him well, considered him a friend for life. Some traveled through that lifetime with him, from “The Cuse to The 757,” from college at NSU to adulthood, and through his last years. One in particular, who would be by his side at the end was Regina Pitt. She and Frank were special friends, who shared their love with their dogs, King and Precious. Frank treated their dogs just as good as humans, cooking them gourmet meals and making sure they had everything they needed. Frank leaves to cherish his precious mother Yvonne Newman of Syracuse, New York, two uncles David Cannon of Laurel, S.C, Nathaniel Cannon of Washington, DC; five aunts Patricia Levy, Ruby Chandler, Ardella Newman, Maria Newman, and Tawana Cannon; and a host of cousins and friends. The family extends their deep appreciation for the many acts of kindness and love shown during the life and passing of our beloved Frank A Newman.

Joseph D. Harris To Frank's parents, Family, and friends; I'm so sorry for your loss. Frank and me played little league baseball together for Salt Springs baseball under coach Brickman and graduated from Nottingham high School together in 1983. I have not talked to Frank in high school but I never forgot what a great guy, and cheerful joker he was. Frank had the ability to make you laugh when you were having a bad day. always had a joke. I will truly miss him!

Linda To the Family. Losing a love one in death is a trying time for all. I just want to give the family some comfort and hope from God's word, which gives the assurance that one day we will see our dear love ones again. ACTS 24:15 And I have a hope toward God, which hope these(men) themselves also entertain, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteuos and the unrighteous. Certainly while we await for these wonderful promise, I hope the family truly find comfort knowing this wonderful hope from Gods word.
