The Uxbridge Bruins are saddened by the loss of an original Bruins player, Bill Newton. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Newton Family. RIP Billy!
Newton, William (Bill) Henry – August 7th, 1960 – August 6th, 2016. We sadly announce the passing of Bill after a courageous four year battle with cancer. Bill, son of Ray (deceased) & Jean Newton, grew up in Uxbridge where he excelled at hockey through Uxbridge Minor Hockey. He went on to play Junior B in Oshawa and in 1978, joined his brothers, Tom and Bruce, on the Bowling Green State University hockey team. While doing his Master’s degree at Western Michigan University, he met his wife Colleen (Price). Bill & Colleen lived in Farmington Hills, Michigan where they raised their two children, Christopher and Andrea. Bill was a successful sporting goods sales representative in midwest United States. Always a favourite within the sporting goods industry, Bill lit up every room that he walked into. Bill served the community of Farmington Hills coaching minor hockey teams and later coached the Farmington Hills High School team to its first State Championship in school history.
He will be missed by his wife Colleen, his children Christopher (Jessie) and Andrea, mother Jean, mother-in-law Jean Price, brothers Tom (Eve) and Bruce (Denyse), sister Michele, and many adoring nieces and nephews. Service to take place in Farmington Hills at a future date.
