'A Dad And A Best Friend'

ewton Lewis Freedman, 92, of
Farmington Hills, died Aug.
11, 2013. Mr. Freedman was
the retired owner of Future Assurance
Insurance Agency.
Newton attended Central High School
and Wayne State University. He met the
love of his life, Selma Silverman, when
they were 13 years old, through their par-
ents, Joseph and Bertha Freedman, and
Harry and Mary Silverman. They all were
members of the Pinsker Progressive Aid
He played the drums and had a band
called Red Lewis and the Five Pennies —
named "Red Lewis" because of Newt's red
hair. He was a gregarious, friendly guy
with a fantastic memory and was the life
of the party, says his daughter Fran.
Through his insurance business, Newton
made numerous contacts and lifelong
friends. Awards for his insurance sales
allowed him and Selma to travel through-
out the U.S., Europe and Asia.
