William Russell Newman passed into eternal rest after falling ill on the evening of August 24th, 2020. He was 26 years old, just twenty days short of his 27th birthday. “Russell” was born in Katy, Texas on September 12th, 1993. He loved to fish and play the drums from a young age. He enjoyed attending church and boy scouts, camping under the stars, hanging out at the lake and boating with the family. He was a true Texan; he loved country music and loved his country. He had an interest in music and animal science, and at times worked for various veterinary clinics. He studied at Magnolia West High School and West Florida Teen Challenge in Bonifay, Florida where many special friendships and bonds were formed that remained till his passing.

Russell resided in Tomball, Texas with his loving family and fiancé Sierra Quach. He loved working and hanging out with his friends at the Champion Ranch in Centerville, Texas.

He is preceded in death by his older brother Christopher Allen Newman.

Russell had a good heart and often thought of others before taking care of himself. He could talk to anybody, never met a stranger, and reached out to those near and far. He loved his cousins and family so much and he was always thinking of them.

Russell is survived by his parents Charlene Nall and Christopher Newman, son Christopher Alejandro Newman, his sisters Misty Rose Nall, Cassandra and Graci Newman, stepbrothers Brendon, Blake and Daniel, Grandmother Rosalinda Gabbard and Grandfather Charlie Garza.

Russell had numerous “buds” and he will be forever remembered and missed by all of them.  

Cherish each moment, cherish the family and friends you have been blessed with in your life. It can all change in the blink of an eye and you will never know when it will be the last time you see those you love. 

Russell, when you went toward the Light, you took my heart with you.  I miss you so much. I look for signs from you every day.  I just hope that you and your brother can feel my love in Heaven. -Mom
