Lucie Newnan Obituary, Death – This evening, we were stunned to learn of the demise of Dr. Lucien (DADDY) Newnan Jr., who was a genuine pioneer in the field of medicine. His passing has left us in a state of shock. This news has left us in a state of profound mourning. One of the most charitable and thoughtful individuals that We have ever had the pleasure of getting to know.
At a period when many people provided medical attention in a manner that lacked a personal touch, he dealt with each of his patients as though they were unique individuals. He treated them all with the utmost respect and compassion. We will never forget the two times that he came to my house to check on how we were doing following my procedures, nor will we forget the two times that he came to visit me in the hospital with his wife Jane after others had performed specialty operations on me.
Those four occasions are etched in my memory and we will never forget them. Those experiences will be seared into my memory for the rest of my life, and I will never forget them. It was an honor for him to be his first patient on the occasion of his seventieth birthday, which also happened to be his own birthday 15 years ago. The birthday in question was a milestone celebration marking the passage of another decade. The 14th of February was the day he was born into this world.
