Mike Newman

We are sad to report that Mike Newman passed away peacefully at his home in Las Vegas on Tuesday, September 25.  Mike had been battling cancer and moved to Las Vegas to be closer to family and friends. Just this past weekend, he was out and about enjoying his grand nieces and  nephews playing soccer. Here in Virginia, Mike had served the referee community for many years as a referee assignor, referee, coach and other volunteer roles for local clubs and tournaments. 
A service celebrating Mike’s life was held in Las Vegas on October 21.  Another service will be held June 15, 2019, in northern Virginia to coincide with the FPYC Father's Day Tournament which held a special place in Mike's heart.
Cards, letters, and other items may be sent to the family via Mike’s son:
Larry Newman
7644-G Fullerton Rd.
Springfield, VA  22153
The family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to  Nathan Adelson Hospice, online at  They took such great care of Mike and his family in his final days.
