Charles “Chuck” Marshall Newman, Jr.

August 29, 1936 ~ April 28, 2022

Charles “Chuck” Marshall Newman, Jr., 85, of Sebastian, passed away on April 28, 2022. His legacy is one of duty to country, a love of family and a passion for adventure and travel.

Born in Madison, West Virginia, to Charles “Marshall” Newman, Sr. and Faye Louise Price, Chuck was the eldest of three siblings. Craving adventure, Chuck enlisted in the United States Air Force shortly before graduating high school. During his 20 years of service, he was stationed all over the world, including Japan and Germany. Many of his fondest memories involved touring these countries on motorcycle.

Chuck retired from the Air Force in 1974. He settled with his family in Ohio, where he opened a motorcycle repair shop. Shortly after, he began working for the United States Postal Service as a rural mail carrier. During this time, Chuck served in the Coast Guard Auxiliary, where he taught safe-boating classes. After 15 years carrying mail, Chuck again retired and started a fishing charter service, Aquia Charters. “Captain Chuck” spent the next few decades fishing on Lake Erie before finally “retiring for good” and moving to The Villages, Florida, where he lived until moving to Sebastian in February 2022.

Chuck enjoyed the freedom of boating; the thrill of the catch in fishing; the rush of motorcycles and racing; the challenge of a round of golf or a game of billiards; and the joy from dancing.

Frank Sinatra once said “I would like to be remembered as a man who had a wonderful time living life, a man who had good friends, fine family – and I don’t think I could ask for anything more than that.” Charles couldn’t ask for anything more. He is survived by: his children, Brian (Jeanne) Newman, Michael (Debbie) Newman, Bradley (Kathy) Newman, Kimberly (Mitchell) Crump and Susan Newman; his brother, David Newman; 19 grandchildren; 18 great-grandchildren; several nieces and nephews; and a host of friends.

He goes on to reunite with those that preceded him in death: daughters, Lee Ann Newman and Michele Stephanie Estep; grand-daughter, Marlie Marie Crump and great grandchildren, Keegan Hamilton and Fisher Brian Newman; sister, Virginia Clifford; and his parents.

Arrangements are under the direction and care of Millennium Cremation Service of Vero Beach. Those that would like to share a fond story of Chuck, or leave condolences for his family may do so at

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
