Newberry and the late Rosa Lee Pendelton. He was a graduate of Spingarn HS & Howard University. He retired as an Army Officer.
He enjoyed traveling, riding horses, playing cards and all games of chance, dancing, singing, writing songs, listening to all genres of music, relaxing in the hot tub, shooting hoops, driving his convertible Mercedes SL500, cracking jokes, hosting pig roasts and entertaining friends and family at home, remodeling the house, fixing things for others - using "MacGyver" out-of-the box problem solving solutions, making people feel special and that what they said and thought truly mattered.
