Roanoke Rapids, NC
Mr. Paul Newell Jr., 47, of Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina.
On the morning of April 19, 2018, the angel of silence came and sealed the life of Paul Lewis Newell, Jr. His soul winged its flight from this world of sin, sorrow, and pain.
Paul (LP) was born on February 3, 1971 to Paul and Mary Garner Newell of Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina.
He professed Christ at an early age and was baptized at Simmons Grove Baptist Church.
Paul was employed with West Point Stevens, Bibb Company and Boars Head for thirteen years.
Paul did not have any biological children of his own. He was blessed to be a father, protector, and provider for his nieces, nephews and community friends. He was the uncle that would always come to the defense of his family when needed in the time of trouble. We would always have to hear his speech (Dammit Boy). Don’t be like me, be better than me. We will miss the fishing trips and family time.
Paul was preceded in death by his father: Paul Lewis Newell, Sr., his sister: Paula Janice Mitchell, and a special friend: Africia Frazier.
Treasured memories will remain with his devoted mother: Mary Garner Newell; four sisters: Barbara Fleming (Sherman) of Roanoke Rapids, NC, Alma Newell of the home, Allison Newell of Littleton, NC and Patricia Overton (Charles) of Halifax, NC; special and devoted friends: Paul Whittle, Brian Newell, Donnell Newell, Kevin Ingram, Andre Alston and Family, Travis Manley, and Hattie Edmonds and Family; community friends: Lincoln Heights, Thelma Road and Huckleberry Bottom Road Crew, Gloria Sledge; and many other nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

I am very sorry for your loss of Paul. The Bible promises at John 5:28 that "all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out'.
