Stephen Gorden Newton

September 20, 1961 — April 16, 2021

Stephen Gorden "Steve" Newton died Friday, April 16, 2021, at his home in Lakeside, Arizona following a recent triple bypass surgery. He was  59 years old. Steve was born on September 20, 1961, in Louisville, Jefferson County, Kentucky to his parents, the late William Roger and Margaline (Woosley) Newton.

Steve was a member of Litchfield High School's Class of '79 in Litchfield, Kentucky. In 1981, Steve enlisted in the United States Army.  He served as a Medical Lab Specialist throughout his military service and received a few badges and ribbons from his service.  He loved the United States of America and her Constitution and was willing to pay the ultimate sacrifice in her defense.

Steve's career had him working in numerous hospitals throughout the country, giving him and his family the opportunity to live in several states.  His most recent position was with the White Mountain Regional Medical Center in Springerville, Arizona where he worked as a Lab Technician for 11 years.  He loved his job and he loved the people he was able to work with and made countless friends over the years.  

On July 24, 2000, Steve married Patricia Leos in Las Vegas, Nevada, and his life has, since, been richly blessed. Steve loved his family and adored his beautiful wife.  His life was spent caring for her every need and he received much joy in his endeavor.  In recent years, his life revolved around, not just her but, his daughter, Lindsay and grandkids, Wyatt and Charli.  He shared his home with them and daily, his day was made brighter by being able to see them, love them, protect them and play with them.  Indeed, he was the greatest husband, father and grandpa to his family.  He loved each and every member of his large family and was grateful to them for the happiness and light they brought into his life.
