Albert Newland

February 24, 1937 — November 25, 2017

Albert Howard Newland, age 80, passed away on Saturday, November 25th at Nottingham Health and Rehabilitation in Olathe, Kansas. He was born on February 24th, 1937 in Chanute, Kansas to Eldred and Frances Newland.
Albert is survived by his son Jim Newland and his wife Misty Newland of Blue Springs, MO and his daughter Christine Yoldas and her husband, Cenk Yoldas, of Bursa, Turkey; his sisters Judy (Cliff) Hix, Dolores Nangle, Jeanne Steele, his brothers Eldred (Tricia) Newland, Joe (Dana) Newland, and John (Lisa) Newland; his grandchildren Ahmet and Fatih Yoldas and Sebastian and Rykerr Newland; he is survived by his many nieces, nephews, other relatives, and his cat Dudley.

Albert grew up in Neodesha, Kansas. He graduated from Neodesha High School in Neodesha, Kansas in 1955. After high school he lived short stints in Washington D.C. and Kansas City before venturing out to San Fransisco, California where he lived for 20 plus years. He worked for P.I.E. trucking company, married Marsha Biery, and began raising his two children. He later relocated with his children to Neodesha, Kansas where he spent 20 plus years working for Cobalt Boats from which he retired. He loved sports, history, the arts, and meeting people on his travels. He was rewarded for cheering through many harsh and unproductive years for his favorite sport teams to see them all rise to glory. The 5 Super Bowls of the 49ers, The 3 World Series of the San Fransisco Giants, and most proudly the great rise of his beloved K-State Wildcats. Later he took on his hobby in newspaper editorials, sharing his knowledge and humor for all or at least some to enjoy. Yet his most important achievement was he was the best Dad and loved dearly by his children.
