Isaiah was born in Richmond, KY, on October 25, 1998.  On Saturday, November 6th, 2021, at the age of 23, Isaiah passed from a fatal motorcycle accident.

He spent his early years in Tennessee, his middle school and high school in Arizona, and has been stationed at The Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center in 29 Palms, CA for the past 4 years.

Isaiah came into the world ready to make a difference.  His first mission trip was to Mexico when he was 6 months old and he’s been adventuring ever since.

He knew no stranger.  As a child, he was ever inquisitive, always wanting to make his parents proud. He was a seeker of truth and justice. His early years spent in Tennessee with his grandparents and extended family were some of his very favorite years.  It was there that he gave his heart to the Lord with sincerity and was baptized – a day his family will cherish forever.

As he continued to grow he enjoyed drawing, good music, hanging out with his brothers, riding anything with wheels, and of course – shooting stuff.  His teenage years were marked with a constant flow of friends in and out of his home.

He graduated High School from Gilbert Early College a semester early, eager to begin his career with the United States Marine Corp.  During these years he transformed into a man.  His relationship with the Lord was strengthened.  He gained another family – a band of brothers to add to his tribe of brothers he’d already gained and gathered along the way.

Isaiah is survived by his parents (Chris and Leah Newton), his brothers Elijah and Caleb Newton, and a whole host of family and friends who love him – too many to name.  He lived well, he loved well, and his time with us was much too short.  He was preceded in death by his grandfather and camping buddy, Michael Newton.  Now they can adventure together!

We will always remember his smile, his goofy dances, and the way he relentlessly picked on you if he liked you (then behind the scenes was checking in on you with compassion).  He loved his brothers and his family fiercely. He looked out and fought for the underdog.  He was a good friend. And in all his pursuits and battles and angsty moments, his heart always returned to its center – Christ, the Creator, Comforter, Counselor and the only true Hope.

    Such a beautiful tribute to a life well lived! Grateful for the hope and assurance of Heaven!!

    Our hearts are so grieved with this loss, I can’t imagine what you’re going through. Please know that though we’re unable to be there, we love you guys and are supporting you from Tucson. Isaiah is now able to do his goofy dances with Jesus at his side (who’s probably doing it with him). I’m praying for His Shalom over your hearts as you go through this, may you be strengthened in His faith and your hearts renewed in His time; He makes good of all things.
    Lifting you high in prayers,
    Rhys and Jessica Norvelle

    I worked at the elementary school and came to know him then. He was a lovely person. So very sorry to hear.

  7. Douglas Alexander says:

    I’m so terribly sorry to hear this. Beyond shocked. We send our love and condolences to all of Isaiah’s family & loved ones. COMFORTER 🙏🏼PLEASE COME… I’ll never forget the steady presence of this young man and how my daughters and I got to be around him in the youth group where my girls were welcomed with such warmth and kindness by the entire Newton family. It was a very special moment in time we will always cherish. Isaiah was always somewhat quiet but his purity and kindness SPOKE VOLUMES. He was always SO PRESENT & will continue to be… I’m so torn to hear this and now I have the very sad task of informing the rest of my family. Tears are flowing as I join your mourning. From the depths of my heart. We love you Chris and Leah. We love your wonderful boys and will be interceding. Please let us know if you need anything at all. WE LOVE YOU DEAR BROTHER ISAIAH. 😓💔😇

    What a beautiful description of someone who sounds like a beautiful person. I regret it that I lived so far away from him and missed this. He sounds like he lived, and loved so well. May the Comforter stay near you all as you mourn his passing and celebrate his beautiful life cut so short. My heart to you.
