April 17, 1973-April 5, 2019
Craig Mathew Newman, 45, of Deer Lodge, MT suddenly passed away on the afternoon of April 5, 2019, with his family by his side.
Craig was born in Deer Lodge April 17, 1973, to Samuel Newman and Linda Deeringer, where he grew up running around the Emery Mine after school while his dad was at work. He enjoyed the outdoors where he would fish, ride his dirt bike, or work on his new project whether that be a vehicle project or wood project. He attended Powell County High School where he would end up meeting some of his lifelong friends.
Craig eventually met his soulmate in the summer of 1992, who he would spend the next 27 years with. Craig and Bobbie Jo started a family and raised Shalina, Secilia, and Sammual Newman, watching them grow up in Deer Lodge also. He was a proud grandpa to JaCobie and Jax Newman, who he spent every day playing with and watching grow.
Craig was kind, generous, loving, selfless, and happy, with a wild fun side. Craig made sure to always let his close friends and family know he loved them, and he never took a day for granted.
Craig is survived by his wife, Bobbie Jo Bartlett-Newman; daughters, Shalina and Secilia Newman; sons, Sammual, JaCobie and Jax Newman; aunt, Patty Watson; and uncle, Bob Newman.
He was preceded in death by his father, Samuel Richard “Dickie” Newman; mother, Linda Deeringer; grandma, Rowena Newman Atkinson; grandpa, Samuel Robert “Dick” Newman; and uncle, Edward Newman.
Celebration of life will be held Friday, April 12, 2019, at the Community of Christ Church in the Annex building behind the church at 1:30 pm in Deer Lodge, MT.
