SCMC Member, Vance Newman, Passes Away On January 11, 2009

I'm sorry to tell tell everyone this but I didn't find out till yesterday and I am in total shock! Thanks to Derek to bringing this to my attention.

Vance Newman

Tryon - Vance Roger Newman, 30, of 323 Bill Holbert Road, passed away Sunday, January 11, 2009. He was the son of Roger Newman (Joanie) of Tryon, N.C. and Carolyn Holbert Bradley (Garry) of Mill Spring, N.C. He was a member of Peniel Baptist Church and worked for Upstate Heating and Air. He was a member of the SVT Cobra Club.

In addition to his parents, he is survived by a brother, Kevin Brown (Lisa) of Green Creek; a sister, Paula Campbell of Landrum, S.C.; and nieces and nephews, Kyle, Cody, Kailyn and Will.

The family will receive friends from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at Petty Funeral Home. Funeral services will be held at 3 p.m. Thursday at Peniel Baptist Church, conducted by the Revs. Steve Price and Jeff Parker. Burial will be in the church cemetery.

The family is at the home of Ronnie and Brenda Champion, 5037 Peniel Road, Tryon, N.C.

While I know we are late in knowing this, anyone who knew Vance knew he was a great guy. I know he loved this club or otherwise they wouldn't have mentioned it in the obituaries. He came to our drag days, autofair, and meets and was a very pleasant member to know. He was quiet but helpful and always offered a helping hand without any expectations for something in return. He was a Cobra Club brother, one who worked hard at his job but still came to see everyone even though he pulled an all nighter.

What can I say? I am in total shock!!! He was young to be taken away from this world and didn't get a chance to live a long life. He will be missed and did I mention that I am still in shock??? Sometimes you never know what the future holds for you so live your life to the fullest and be glad that you have another day to enjoy what God has provided for you.

I know that Vance is in a better place than this earth but I will still miss him. I just can't believe that he is gone and I give my condolences to his family and friends. He was a true SCMC member, one that loved his Cobras and his fellow SCMC friends.

God Bless You Vance, I hope you will take the time to look down on us from heaven and smile and know we will be thinking about you and we will miss you.

Please mention the club when you sign so his family and friends know we cared about our Cobra Club brother, thanks.

Also, please post something here so others will know how much we cared about him.

Thanks for your time!

I've never met Vince, but what a shame. Especially at such a young age.

I'm sure he will be missed.

I to never met Vance, but really wish I had. He sounds like a good person who would help someone in need. It's a sad day when you see someone so young get taken away from their life on earth. Keep Vance in your thoughts and prayers. Spend time with the ones you love and enjoy life that much more.

May he rest in peace for eternity with the Lord

May the Lord look after and comfort his family, for their loss, as there is no greater pain for a parent then to loose a child.

May his soul and all the souls of our faithfully departed rest in peace.

Amen

Unhappy

I am in shock about this! We will certainly miss Vance. I always enjoyed teasing him at events about him catching a snooze.

Crystal & I pray that God comforts his family and friends in this difficult time for them. I hate to see any one (not suffering) leave this earth before living a long, fruitful life, but would not bring him back from Heaven even if I could. It is tough for us, but he now lives in a place so glorious we cannot even begin to imagine.

What a eye-opening reminder that all of us live numbered days, only God knows that number! I pray that none of us waste a single minute of that precious time.

Steve

I never knew him personally, but I (like the rest of us in this club) feel the loss and my heart and prayers go out to his family. Life is a very precious thing and I think sometimes we all get so caught up in trials and tribulations and forget what is really important - family!

Rest in Peace Vance!

Vance was a true reflection of why this club was started in the first place. I know he really loved this organization by the way he talked about it to others. Today the SCMC received a check from the Polk County Finance for $60.00 as was designated by his family to the club. In return, I think we need to do something special with the contribution to let his family and friends know how much we really miss and care about him.

Your thoughts and ideas would be helpful, thanks.

P.S. Derek, that is an awesome photo of Vance, where did you get that photo? Also, I'm going to dig back through our club photos and see if we can host some of him up on the website.

Tony
