Dr. Arnold Newton


Dr. Arnold (Arnie) Newton died suddenly at home on Sept. 19, 2022, leaving behind his wife of 50 years, Marie Newton (Anderson).

Arnie was the proud father of Dr. Jennifer Charbonneau (Stephane), Dr. Allison Newton-Moore (Janine), Mark Newton (Ali), and Adam Newton (Lindsay).

Loving grandfather to Matthew, Madeleine, and Luc Charbonneau; Caleb and Lachlan Moore; Georgia and Beckett Newton; and Gwen and Lucy Newton.

Arnie is survived by his brother Lionel Newton (Petra) and sister Rochelle Dennis (Paul). He will be missed by his nieces and nephews and large extended family.

Arnie graduated from the University of Western Ontario in 1973 and practiced as a doctor of obstetrics and gynecology for 30 years at York County Hospital (now The Southlake Medical Centre) and then moved to Ottawa, where he continued to practice medicine right to the end.

Arnie was proud of his family and passionate about medicine. He loved chatting with patients and friends, telling a good story or joke, and adored his dogs.

His jovial nature and playful sense of humour will be greatly missed.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Southlake Medical Centre or the Ottawa Heart Institute.
