After serving in the U.S. Navy for 10 years, Newt spent several decades using his talents of charisma, charm and communication; he retired form Pepsi Cola Inc. in 2004.

Following retirement, Newt embraced life by traveling with his forever traveling companion, his wife of 56 years, Sylvia J. Coady. He enjoyed road trips across the country to see national parks, forests and the seaside. He loved fishing wherever they went, especially the creeks of Bishop, California.

His greatest legacy is his family.

Cast your line in Heaven and catch those fish, Papa !
