Jacque Reagan Newerth
Jacque Reagan Newerth, 61, passed away at his Indianapolis home with his wife at his side Saturday, March 1, 2014.
He was born Dec. 4, 1952, in Indianapolis. He was the oldest child of Donald and Diana Newerth.
Jacque was a quiet man with simple pleasures.
After graduating from Beech Grove High in 1970, he served in the Army National Guard. His career was as an ironworker and a machine maintenance electrician.
He built a life on the southside of Indianapolis with family and longtime friends nearby. He loved the outdoors: camping, yard work, and riding his motorcycle and Jeep. Jacque enjoyed reading and traveling, especially to the national parks. He had a dry sense of humor, could fix anything that was broken and loved antique cars and automotive racing.
He leaves behind his wife of 38 years, Sharon (Hendrick) Newerth; two children, Alyssa Starr Newerth and Brandon James Newerth. He is also survived by his mother, Diana Newerth; brothers Scott, Brian and Kevin; and sister, Sheree Morado.
A service will be at 1 p.m. Saturday at Singleton Community Mortuary and Memorial Center, 7602 Madison Ave., Indianapolis. The family will receive friends from 10 a.m. until service time Saturday at the funeral home.
