Blaine Keith Newman, age 53, of Garland, TX passed away on Thursday July 27, 2017. Blaine was born August 16, 1963 to Barbara Newman and Bill Newman.
He graduated from Bryan Adams High School in East Dallas in 1981, and earned an Associate's Degree in Computer Science from Eastfield Junior College.
Blaine was a member of Troop 744 in Dallas, Texas. He earned scouting's highest rank, Eagle Scout. He went on numerous campouts and to summer camp, as well as a high adventure backpacking trip to Philmont in the mountains of northern New Mexico. Blaine went on many trips with his extended family including Disney World and Colorado. One memorable trip was a driving adventure to Las Vegas with his brother Bret, cousins Kyle and Jill along with his mother and great aunt. It was memorable for many reasons, but one thing that stood out, is that Blaine and Kyle did all the driving even though they were relatively new to driving. Many fun summers and weekends were spent with cousins at "Farissville" at Lake Tawakoni. Growing up, there were many hours spent with his across-the-street cousins and friends just riding bikes, playing basketball, roaming the neighborhood, and occasionally, fireworks and BB guns were involved.
Blaine is survived by his mother Barbara Newman; father Bill Newman and step-mother Lydia Newman; brother Bret Newman and sister-in-law Amy Newman; nephew Tyler Newman, nephew Matt Newman, Debbie Harbin, Bill Andelman, David Terry Andelman, Laurel Newman, aunt Vicki Newman, uncle Jim Newman, cousin Kyle Newman and wife Kelly Newman, cousin Alex Newman, cousin Collin Newman, cousin Jill Newman Richardson and husband Delbert Richardson, cousin Allison Richardson and cousin Blake Richardson.
Blaine was preceded in death by; grandfather Garland Fariss, grandmother Daisy Bernice Fariss, grandfather Jack Newman, grandmother Yuvonne Newman, and uncle Rick Fariss.
