ASHTABULA — Nicholas Allen Newhart, age 11, of Ashtabula, was granted his eternal Angel Wings on Friday, April 19, 2013, at the Cleveland Clinic.
Nicholas was born on May 20, 2001, at Ashtabula County Medical Center. He was the loving son of Michael and Jamie (Weaver) Newhart. Nick was a fifth grade student at Geneva Middle School.
He enjoyed his toys, especially noisy ones, and his pet turtle, but most of all, he loved the water. Nick loved to swim, take baths, do dishes, and just play with the water. Adding bubbles to water made it even better. He was known as “Water Bug” to the family because he was always trying to be in or near the water.
Nick was a Daddy’s boy, he found much comfort in his father, and always wanted to be near him and spend time with him. His mom remembers him as being loving and sneaky, always trying to take her chocolate and Dr. Pepper. Nick was a very loving child, although he faced challenges with Autism, he was always a very lovable child giving lots of hugs and kisses. He was a child that touched many lives and will fondly be remembered and missed by all who knew him. Nick was an organ donor and through his gift, he will continue to live on in others.
He is survived by his parents, Michael and Jamie Newhart of Ashtabula; brothers, Cody and Dakota Newhart at home; maternal grandparents, Robert (Patricia) Weaver of Ashtabula; paternal grandparents, Joanne Newhart of Ashtabula and Ray (Nancy) Newhart of Jefferson; maternal great-grandmothers, Carol Weaver of Ashtabula, and Barbara Green of Roanoke, Va.; maternal great-grandfather, Carl Padgett of Roanoke, Va.; aunts and uncles, Robert (Kari) Weaver, Dave (Stacie) Newhart, Donyale (Tina) Holmes, Doug (Sharon) Jones and Dennis (Heather) Newhart; and many cousins and friends.
