“Jesus said, Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
Mr. Antjwun Ricardo Newman, the youngest son of Tomekia Allen and Anthony Newman was born December 11, 2004, in Houston County, Georgia. At an early age, Antjwun joined Saint Paul Baptist Church under the leadership of Reverend J.M. Glover. He was a member of the Youth Department and the Jr. Ushers Board.
He was an upcoming 11th Grade Student at Peach County High School; his favorite subject was Social Studies and avid basketball fan.
Antjwun will forever be remembered by his family as an introvert-withdrawn yet loving with a kind heart and a great personality; he had the patience of Job; he mastered the Computer and playing video games. Antjwun was faced with many of life’s challenges; he faced each one like a brave soldier. He was a fighter to the end.
He was preceded in death by his grandfather, Robert Allen, Sr.
On Saturday, July 3, 2021, while a patient at Egleston Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, surrounded by his mother, Antjwun was gathered in the arms of Jesus and carried safely to the land of no more pains.
