Robert Newman

Robert Newman, 68, passed away Sept. 30, 2019, in Charlotte, N.C.

Born Nov. 23, 1950, in Ashtabula, Bob graduated from Shaker Heights High School, University of Cincinnati and Case Western Reserve University, where he earned his DDS degree. Bob practiced as a pediatric dentist in Youngstown and Boca Raton, Fla.

With compassion at his core, Bob lived his life to the fullest. He loved his family and friends wholly and was a beloved pediatric dentist in his Boca Raton community. Bob was a dear friend, loving father and “papa” to his two grandchildren. He enjoyed movies, theater, show tunes and travel (especially to his paradise, Disney World).

Bob led by example and truly defined the word mensch.

Bob is survived by his loving wife of 41 years, Cheryl Newman; daughters, Marni Newman (David Schindler) and Kara (Brandon) Culp; grandchildren, Julia and Andrew Culp; siblings, Mark (Charlene) Newman, Ilene (Doug) Friedman and Neil (Bonnie) Dick; and three nieces and one nephew.

Funeral services were held in Charlotte.
