Jackie “Jack” Paul Newton, 62, was born on October 5th, 1957 in Nevada, MO and passed away peacefully at home with his sister on Sunday, July 12, 2020 in Nevada.
Jackie Paul, or best known to those closest to him as Jack or JP, was one of the most loyal and honest many will have ever known. Most people would say Jack had a smile and personality that would light up any room. His laugh and contagious sense of humor always had everyone’s attention. Jack had a passion for music, always singing to a song or strumming on a guitar. His passion for motorcycles was his very favorite pastime. Jack always stated, one day he would have his “Harley Wings”, and ride freely down Heavens road with all his brothers who had gone before him. His biggest love was for his forever fur friend, his dog “Sissy Girl”. Jack also had a passion for fishing, and he supported every trucker around the world as he loved and drove an 18-wheeler for the majority of his life.
Survivors include his sisters, Cathy Beisley and Roy Collins, Nevada, MO, and Cindy Caviness, Joplin, MO; and one brother, Ronald Newton and Sharon, Nevada, MO. His three daughters, Joslynn Boykin, Joplin, MO, Christina Noel, Nevada, MO and Amber Wagstaff, Joplin, MO; three sons, Justin Rutledge, Joplin, MO, Jared Rutledge, Springfield, MO, and Jackie (JR) Newton, Nevada, MO; and one very special brother and lifelong friend, Dudley Sawyer. Several nieces, nephews, and grandchildren.
