It is with great sorrow and heavy hearts that the J.C. Newman Cigar Company announces the passing of its beloved leader, Stanford J. Newman August 17, 2006, Tampa, FL – It is with great sorrow and heavy hearts that the J.C. Newman Cigar Company announces the passing of its beloved leader, Stanford J. Newman. Surrounded by family, Stanford died a peaceful death after experiencing a cardiac arrest while working at the office this past Tuesday. Not only will Stanford long be remembered as a giving person in life, his generosity after his death will save another’s life. Stanford’s liver is being donated to a patient in critical need. At a time of deep sadness, this uplifting gift of life brings comfort to the family. Starting with the company in 1934 and having just celebrated his 90th birthday in June, not only was Stanford the oldest cigar man in the business, but was an industry icon as well. As Chairman of the Board, he continued to work everyday and oversaw every aspect of the Tampa-based cigar manufacturing operation. Loved by all who knew him, Stanford was a leader, a mentor and a visionary who will be truly missed. He is survived by his wife of sixty years, Elaine; his sons, Eric and Bobby; and his three grandsons Drew, Dawson and Paxton. A memorial service will be held on Sunday, August 20, 2006 at Congregation Schaarai Zedek, 3303 W. Swann Ave in Tampa, at 1:30 p.m. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be sent to the Cigar Family Charitable Foundation, www.cf-cf.org, P.O. Box 76246, Tampa, Florida 33675 or the Elaine Newman Scholarship Fund at Berkeley Preparatory School, 4811 Kelly Rd., Tampa, Florida 33615.
