Tommy Newton

Thursday, June 22, 2023

Tommy Dee Newton, 62, passed away on June 16, 2023.

The family will have a private celebration of Tommy’s life at a later date.

Tommy was born in Austin on May 23, 1961, but moved to Hamilton in the ’80s and became a long-time resident.

As a child, Tommy loved to take bicycles and other toys apart to see how they worked, so it was no surprise that as an adult he worked as a mechanic becoming skilled in small engine repair. Many Hamilton residents may know Tommy as the “lawn mower guy” or the humorous guy who knew how to work on stuff and make you laugh.

He is preceded in death by his son, Billy Ray Newton; his mother, Janet Reutebuch; father Allen Newton; stepfathers John Reutebuch and John McKinzie; maternal grandmother Beulah Collins (Nanny); and many other beloved extended family members.

Tommy is survived by his son and grandson, Thomas and Travis Newton of Spicewood; brother and sister Jerry and Cindy McKinzie of Canyon Lake; sisters Debbie Jahns and Nancy Young of Austin and sister Jeanne Starr of Hamilton; and by their husbands, wives, children and grandchildren.

Tommy also had many friends who continued to remain constants in his life to the day he passed.
