Like the other two persons posting here, I was in correspondence with Joe even while he was at Harrison Point. Even in that situation Joe was upbeat, offering counselling to others around him as well as some good humour, as only Joe could. Joe was a remarkable man, I 've known him in a professional capacity for the last 12 years or so. I have never seen Joe angry or disillusioned. I admired his independence as a small contractor and indeed as a master of many trades. He was a man who was attentive to his family, especially his dear son. One of the last things he said to me was that he had a healthy veneration for the Lord. I hope therefore that he rests in eternal peace. Farewell, my friend.

My condolences to the family of Joseph Newton. My sympathy goes out to you all and I do hope that you all can find peace going forward. I last spoke to Joseph on January 28, 2021, and promised to phone him every two (2) while he was in isolation. When I did call on the 30th of January and did not get a response, I was very concerned. The reason for my concern is our friendship which I would describe as rewarding spanned over twenty years. Mr. Newton was knowledgeable, humourous, and very frank. My discussions with him were fulfilling and educational. I have lost a real friend and advisor in construction matters. Rest in peace, my friend.

My condolences to the family of Joseph Newton! May you find comfort and peace in the Lord during this difficult and trying time. My mind races on Jo everyday and my heart broke the day he left this earth. I spoke to him just a few days ealier and I was anxiously awaiting his return to Belfield. Joseph has be a big part of my life for over 26 years. He was my cricket coach, i was his bridesmaid and we still saw each other almost everyday out Belfield. I cannot imagine how this has impacted you because my life will not be the same. I will forever miss my friend and my heart will always hold that empty space but the many stories and the memories we share are endless. Rest peacefully my Jo Jo!
