Leland Allen (Lee) Newborn of McIntosh, Florida was welcomed from his home in McIntosh, Fla. into heavenly home on Monday January 8, 2018 after a lengthy illness.

Lee was born March 19, 1937 in Newnan, Ga. During a long and distinguished career in law enforcement, he served in various departments, retiring as Major of the Florida Highway Patrol after 42 years of distinguished service.

He was a Ruling Elder in the Presbyterian Church, a member of Community Presbyterian Church and until his illness was a regular worshiper at McIntosh Presbyterian Church.
Lee’s life was centered upon his faith, and he gave witness to the grace of Christ in how he lived and in his relationships with all whom he met. Close to his heart was his involvement with the Gideons.

Lee is survived by his wife of 43 years, Teresa Green Newborn; children, Mechele N. Davis, Allen Newborn and Daniel Newborn; grandchildren, Jason Davis, David Newborn, Justin Davis, Rebecca N. White, Piper Newborn and Morgan Murphy; as well as many friends and colleagues from his long and meaningful life.

Funeral services will be held at McIntosh Presbyterian Church on Saturday, January 20, 2018 at 10:30 a.m.
