Alan C. Newman 1937 - 2010

ALAN CHARLES NEWMAN, Age 73, passed away on February 9, 2010 as the result of an unfortunate accident.  His sudden passing was a shock to all who knew and loved him.

Alan was born on January 8, 1937 to Maryhelen and Roy Newman in Glendale, California.  He spent his formative years in Vancouver, British Columbia before returning to California.  During his military career, he spent four years attached to the Special Services Division of the Marine Corps.  He was an enthusiastic mentor and friend to many.  Also an avid entrepreneur, he and his wife, Janet, established the A.C. Newman & Co. in 1974, a successful insurance company which continues to this day.

Alan was a top amateur golfer amassing many tournament wins and club championships throughout the country over the course of his playing career.  Most importantly he made many great friendships along the way.  Alan was a member of several golf clubs, and a resident-member of Del Mar Country Club in Rancho Santa Fe, California.

Alanís greatest joy was to meet and know people, learning their life stories, finding thoughtful ways to be a friend and supporting them in their own pursuit of their lifeís path.  He was so proud of his family and all of his friends, constantly sharing stories with others describing his admiration and appreciation of the wonderful people in his life.

In addition to Janet, his wife of 42 years, Alan is survived by his sons Jeffrey (Rosemary) and Brian (Denise), his sister Lynda (Harry), and seven grandchildren.

Alan was remembered at a private family service.

We miss him so much and will carry him in our hearts forever.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests contributions be made to a charity of your choice.
