I am sad to learn of the passing of David Newton. Even thought it is about five years later. I was a neighbor of David growing up. We were inseparable friends for many years. I remember Larry Keller and his sisters. Larry posted here. Sweet memories of being a kid in the 1950’s in a nice neighborhood!
