Lionel Boon Newton. It is with great sadness we announce that Lionel Boon Newton passed away on December 12, 2013 in White Rock, BC after a short struggle with cancer. Lionel was born June 9, 1932 in Drain, Oregon. He received his Masters degree from the University of Oregon in music education. After teaching music for several years at Princess Margaret Secondary and Newton Junior Secondary schools he began a career in Real Estate in the White Rock/ South Surrey Area. During his retirement years he was an avid golfer, master club fitter, and swing coach who found great joy in helping golfers improve their game. He will be remembered for his quick sense of humor, love of music and his exceptional singing talent which touched so many people. Predeceased by his spouse Jytte Langmann, Lionel is survived by his children Lauren and spouse Koho, Kimberly and spouse Christopher (Kenneth, Tiffini, Kevin) and Tracy and spouse Hilary (Tyler and Erin, Dustin, Spencer and Kaylee).
