Conrad Jerome Newell died peacefully surrounded by his family on November 13, 2017. He was born in Geneva, Alabama on December 31, 1924 to the late W.J. and Lilly Newell. Conrad was predeceased by his daughter, Vicki Newell Sylvester, five sisters, and three brothers.
Conrad and his family moved to Wilmington in 1968 where he joined his brother as part owner of Newell Inc. After thirty-five years the business was sold, and the Newell brothers retired. In his retirement Conrad started a business, Newell Glass Repair. He enjoyed this new venture for twenty years. Through this new business he made and thoroughly enjoyed many new friends.
He is survived by his wife, Marie, and their son, Gary Newell and wife, Tammy Parker Newell; son-in-law, David Sylvester; and six grandchildren who called him “Pop”.
Conrad was a man of strong Christian convictions and high moral values. He served the Lord faithfully throughout his adult life. He was named “Deacon Emeritus” by his church, Temple Baptist Church, 1801 Market Street.
A memorial service will be held at 1:00PM on Wednesday, November 15, 2017 at Temple Baptist Church with Senior Pastor, Dr. Mark Gaskins, officiating; assisted by Dr. Del Parkerson and Dr. Steve Spangler.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be directed to Temple Baptist Church.

Celebrating the life of Conrad Jerome Newell
Thank you for signing Conrad Jerome Newell's Guestbook
To Marie and Gary and family, We just heard today (through circumstances that had to be a 'God thing') about Conrad. We are so sad for your loss. We were just talking a few nights ago about you all and I said I wish I knew how to contact you again. We also did not know about Vickie until now. Again, so sad for that loss. We have such fond memories of you all. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and we know God's love and comfort will sustain you during this time. Much love to you all,
Yvonne and Hubert Morrow, 3323 Slash Pine Dr., Lake Wales 33898.

I wish to express my deepest and sincerest condolences to the family. Words alone cannot ease the pain when grieving the loss of a love one. The Bible provides comfort during these difficult times. Revelation 21:3-4 states, "And he(GOD) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away". May God give you comfort in your loving memories and in His promise that soon we will never experience losing our love ones we will be able to see them again once they are resurrected John 5:28-29. May these scriptures bring comfort and calmness of heart to you during the difficult days
