Do we know for sure that Mr. Newberry passed away. I'm a friend of his daughter in law, in Greeneville, TN. She left work earlier, headed that way, and we haven't heard back from her.

Yes he did pass away. He drove across the road and hit the hillside. He died from a heart attack. His wife was not hurt.

OMG I loved Mr. Newberry! He was by far the best teacher EVER! He and Doris, his wife, I think thats her name, both were GREAT people. I feel so sorry for the family! He used to sing to us in gym, and roll us up in the wrestling mats and roll us off the stage haha.. He'd sing "swiming in the noody without my bathing suity" and there was another one, I just can't think of it right now.. When you guys find out funeral arrangments please please post them for us! Thank you! I'm so sorry and you are in my thoughts and prayers Doris! We all love you both!

Don Newberry was a great HEALER. Just ask any kid that got hurt in Gym. He would do a little chant over the "wound" and everything would be OK.

Don and Doris are two of the most wonderful people you could ever meet.

Both of my daughters called me to inform me of his passing and to cry over their loss.

MAY GOD BLESS DURING YOUR TIME OF LOSS AS YOU HAVE BLESSED ALL OF US.

Mr. Don Newberry is the greatest man I ever met. He has the honor of FOREVER being my role model and inspiration for the future. In life or death, this man was/will be loved by all. A HUGE HEART this man had and made known to everyone.
Mr. Newberry, I will never forget our talks from the bus, gym class, and throughout the later years. You pulled me through so much it's not even funny. When I'm down I always think of your words of wisdom you taught us throughout Elementary School. You always did take care of us. My hope was to invite you to graduation to watch us walk across that stage, but now I know you'll definitely be there. Rest in peace Don, your race is run.
A friend
