Obituary for William Matthews "Bill" Newcomb

It is with great sadness that the family of William “Bill” Newcomb announces his passing on Monday, May 3, 2021 after battling a brief illness at the age of 69. Bill passed peacefully surrounded by his family. Bill will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 23 years, Katrina, his mother, Virginia Crew of Chestertown, MD, his loving children, son Wroth Newcomb (Megan) of Millington, MD, son Lawson Newcomb (Lindsay) of Centerville, MD, step-daughter Melissa Johnson (Barry) of Hamilton, VA and sister Susan Wright (Jimmy) of Chestertown, MD. Bill will also be fondly remember by his precious six grandchildren: Alex, Zach, Ronan, Mason, Hadley and Davis. He will also be remembered by his two nieces Kristen and Ashley, his beloved dog Jovi, his good buddies Button, Ike, Iatesta, Ray and extended family and dear friends.

Born February 6, 1952 in Chestertown, MD, he was the son of the late Clarence M. Newcomb,
survived by his mother Virginia (Starkey) Newcomb Crew.

Bill’s career was spent in the printing business in many various capacities. Bill ended his career at Hub Labels in Hagerstown, MD, where he worked for 18 years before retiring in 2017.

In his free time, Bill enjoyed golfing, fishing and hunting waterfowl, spending time with his grandchildren, and enjoyed time at the beach or lake. One of his favorite things to do was go rock fishing with his two sons on the Eastern shore. He was an avid Baltimore Ravens fan. His infectious laugh will be greatly missed.

In remembrance of Bill, the family ask that any charitable donations be made to Hospice of Washington County (Doey’s House). To donate by mail: 747 Northern Avenue, Hagerstown, MD 21742. Online donations:

A celebration of life will be held this summer on the Eastern Shore
