Kevin Lamar Newborn

March 9, 1980 — February 22, 2023

Kevin Lamar Newborn was born on March 9, 1980, in Arkadelphia, Arkansas to Glenny Williams and Greg McGhee. “KO” was laid back and kept to himself.

KO was educated in the Arkadelphia Public School District. He became a father at an early age and worked hard at being the best father that he could be. His children were his pride and joy.

He worked with the maintenance team at the Pilot Travel Center in Caddo Valley. In his spare time, he enjoyed hunting, fishing, and riding 4-wheelers. His favorite sport was baseball. He spent a lot of his time with friends and family. KO was unique in his own way, never out-front and to be seen, but humble and gentle in every respect.  

On Tuesday, February 22, 2023, KO passed from this life. He was preceded in death by his daughter, Taliyah McGhee and his bonus father, Bernard Williams.

Because love is far greater than death, his love will continue to live in the hearts of his children, Schyler McGhee, Kaillah McGhee, Ionna McGhee; parents, Glenny Williams, and Greg McGhee; three sisters, Sheena McGhee, Lakita McGhee, Kania McGhee; three brothers, Travon (Lonya) Newborn, Terrence Wright, Jonathan Tate all of Arkadelphia; his grandmother, Annie Sue Bailey of Gurdon; uncles, Eli McGhee, J.T. McGhee, Benny Hart; aunts, Kasaundra Robinson, and Voncia Berry; bestfriend, Jason Peterson and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and countless friends.

Visitation will be from 1:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. on Friday, March 3, 2023 with the family receiving friends from 6:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. at the funeral home. Services will be held at 2:00 p.m. at New Antioch Baptist Church with Rev. Troy Hearn, the eulogist. The interment will be at Richmond Hill Cemetery in Arkadelphia, Arkansas.

Jason Peterson, Terry Hughes, Jr., Carl Quarles, Jr., Corey Hunter, David Boddie, and Corey Davis will serve as pallbearers.
