Dennis Newman died peacefully at home after a short illness on Aug. 24.
Newman moved to Aromas in 1985 after he married Nancy and enjoyed the country life. He had a unique sense of humor with witty one-liners. He enjoyed visiting friends, and had a love of cars and road trips.
He was a retired communications technician who worked at Pacific Bell and UCSC. To those who knew Newman, he was a good man who got up each day and always did what he had to do. Newman was loved by his family.
He is survived by his wife of 34 years, Nancy, and daughters Charlotte (Patrick) Tilkes, Andrea Ramos and Julie Newman. He is also survived by his three grandchildren.
The Newman family thanks Hospice of Santa Cruz nurses and staff for their support.
