Jonathon D. Newberg

Jonathon Douglas Newberg, 29, passed away suddenly on Wednesday, July 4, 2018. 

Born in Grand Rapids, Michigan, he was the son of Jeffrey M. Newberg (Lenair Correll) and Terrie K. Annis (Chad). Jon attended Reeths Puffer High School. 

One of Jon’s favorite hobbies was collecting Jeeps and working on them. He enjoyed deer and duck hunting with his dad, sister, and uncles (Robert and Thomas Keena). He enjoyed going to concerts and festivals with his friends and spending time with family swimming and tubing down the river. Jon will be remembered for his funny stories that he would tell that would have everyone laughing, his sense of humor, his compassion for others, his helping hand and big heart. 

He is survived by his children, Gage and Zoey Newberg; sister, Meaghan Newberg; brother, Cameron Annis; grandparents, Douglas (Carolyn) Benkert, Diane Mesler; aunts and uncles, Laurie Mesler, Craig Mesler, Jennifer Benkert and cousins.

    You were my 1st nephew, like a brother, and one of my best friends. We had each others back, I babysat you all the time, we did all sorts of projects, went camping, white river rafting, we always went tubing together, we always went trick or treating with the kiddos, and went to watch fireworks as a big family. You taught my son so much as well as me when we worked on cars or some of our crazy projects. All my tattoos execpt one you did, and we will always have our matching one. I will never be able to express how much I am going to miss you, we are all going to miss you and your beautiful smile. I love you kiddo and I know “I can fix it and we got this tete”. Find peace.

    Jon you were my first love. We had so many incredible adventures together. Your witty humor brightened the life of everyone around you, and your handiness helped everyone too! You gave me the most amazing child I could ever ask for. And for that I will always be thankful for you. I can only hope that you are rocking out to some Sublime and shining your light on us. Rest Peacefully.

    I am deeply sorry for your loss and immeasurable sadness. Jon was my daughter’s boyfriend and partner for many years and he often called me Mom, which always made me smile. He’s my granddaughter’s father and for me will always hold a special place in my heart. Jon, I pray for your soul to find peace and your spirit to soar!

    You were my first grandson and from the moment I first saw you, I loved you with all my heart. There wasn’t a project you couldn’t handle be it cars, construction, or his favorite Jeeps.Jon had the hearts of so many with his smile and humor. There are no words to describe the pain, but I will forever hold you in my heart. We loved you so very much
