It is with a heavy heart we pass along the sad news that Carroll Newingham's journey with Alzheimer's ended on Thursday, 1/28/2016. He passed peacefully surrounded by his family and caregiver Jill Raeann Lyons.

Carroll Newingham was one of the earliest members and promoters of the Illinois Paint Horse Association. He served in a number of positions-Officer, State Director, APHA National Director, APHA Committee Member and Show Manager of our Zone shows. Wherever you needed him, Carroll was there to step in and help out. Carroll showed many excellent horses, producing World Champions, Reserve Champions and Futurity winners from a number of good stallions he stood throughout the years: Shay D Chief, Gran Loot, R Gran Boy and more. Anyone who knew Carroll knew his smile, his horses, and there was always a good story. And Carroll never met a stranger.

The Newingham family invites friends and family to a Celebration of Life at 6 pm at the Waverly American Legion, Monday, February 1st. A short memorial service will be followed by a meal and fellowship. Please bring your stories and pictures to share. Casual attire is encouraged. Donations can be made directly to Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimers -Team Carroll Dean, or can be sent to IPHA Treasurer, Jerry Wyrick, 12336 N 2850 East Rd., Ellsworth, IL, to be forwarded.
