County mourns passing of former auditor

Former Adams County Auditor Carroll E. Newman died Thursday, Oct. 15 at the age of 74. Mr. Newman served three consecutive terms as auditor. He was a native of Blue Creek, born on April 4, 1941 to the late Wilbur and Mabel (Covert) Newman.

Before entering county politics he served as fiscal officer for Jefferson Township and was a school employee.

He was widely respected by his neighbors, friends and coworker.

“He was a good Christian man,” said current Auditor David Gifford, “I never saw him get angry or upset in any situation. He always remained calm and easy going, and he was always willing to listen to others.”

Mr. Newman was a member of the Shawnee Community Church, Gideon’s International VFW, American Legion, Adams County Honor Guard, and the Farm Bureau.

“Carroll Newman was a hard working humble public servant. He and I would talk a lot about public service,but never about politics,” said Commissioner Steve Caraway. “He wasn’t interested in the politics, he cared about the service. Carroll Newman was the gold standard of public service, Adams County has lost a remarkable man.”

He is survived by his wife, Judy, two sons, Robert E. Newman, M.D. of Wheelersburg, and Jeffrey D. Newman and wife, Lisa, of West Union; one sister, JoAnn Hall and husband Leslie of West Union; four grandchildren, Kaylee Newman, Kore Newman, Abigail Newman and Hannah Newman.

“He and Judy had a wonderful family,” Caraway said, “They celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary last year andhe was very proud of his family.”

Funeral services were held on Monday, Oct. 19 at the Thompson-Meeker Funeral Home. Burial followed in the West Union Cemetery with military graveside services by the Adams County Honor Guard.

Memorials can be made to Gideons International.
