Michael Newman, age 66, passed away on Tuesday, May 24, 2022, peacefully
at his home in Bullhead City, Arizona, after a three year battle with
skin cancer.

Mike moved to Bullhead City in 1980 from Topeka, Kan. and began his
career with the Bullhead City Police Department as a founding member on
July 29, 1985. During Mike's career at BHCPD he was instrumental in
building and creating the Annual Fraternal Order of Police Volunteer
Santa Sleigh Program that spreads Christmas cheer each year throughout
Bullhead City. Mike retired as a Police Sergeant with 20 years of
service on May 1, 2006.

After his retirement, Mike experienced renal failure of both kidneys. He
was blessed to find a live kidney donor, Kellie Julian, his angel here
on earth. A piece of Kellie passed away that day also because her kidney
functioned perfect for Mike until the end. Mike also worked for the
Golden Nugget Laughlin in Security and Risk Management.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Raymond and Ann Newman;
brothers, Raymond Jr. and Larry Newman; sisters, Carol Elliott and Linda

Mike is survived by his wife of 23 years, Janet; son, Michael; and his
sister, Patty Newman.

There will be a service for Michael Newman at 10 am on Saturday, July 9,
2022 at Christian Growth Fellowship, under the direction of Pastor Jerry
Duke, 1331 Baseline Road, Bullhead City, AZ (928)201-7088.

RIP my love, until we meet again... Janet
