Lawrence H. “Twig” Newark III, 54, of Cambridge passed away on August 23, 2019.  He was born in Annapolis, MD on March 28, 1965 to the late Lawrence Henry Newark, Jr., and Cecelia Jane Brooks Newark.   

For many years, Twig worked as the loading dock supervisor for Walmart.  More recently, he worked as a maintenance worker for Woods Crossing Apartments.  Twig loved animals.  He was always a humanitarian and would feed every stray cat that came across his path.  He also enjoyed playing video games.  Being born so close to the Chesapeake Bay, Twig’s fondest memories were on the Bay Shore, including sailing, swimming, and just spending time with family on the water.  Twig faced many adversities in his life, and with the many mountains that arose in front of him, sometimes he climbed, and others he stumbled.  He always had a big heart and was always full of love.   

Twig is survived by his significant other of almost 30 years Donna Moneypenny, children Daniel Heiss, Kari Newark, Christopher Newark, and Jamie Newark Alvarez-Vega, grandchildren Tommy, Olivia, Vada, and Aurianna, sisters Mary Beth Hunter and her husband Ken, Pearce “Penny” Thompson, niece Melissa Bthune and husband Brent, nephew Stephen Hunter and wife Liz and their son Gavin, a half-brother Stephen Pitt, and several cousins.   

All services will be private.  Arrangements are in the care of Thomas Funeral Home, P.A.
