Service for John Newman on Sept. 30

John H. Newman, a longtime friend of the Ozarks Poets & Writers Collective, died on Sept. 27, 2011, at age 62.

John was a frequent reader at the OPWC’s open-mic portion of our monthly program.

John generally read just a single poem, often a very personal one, straightforwardly. Invariably the verses showed dry wit and strong insight.

He was a great guy. His wife, Darla, and their family are holding services for him at 3:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 30, 2011. The funeral home details are at this link. The Northwest Arkansas Newspapers obituary (is essentially the same) is at this link.
