Chance Newton

April 19, 1996 ~ August 8, 2021 (age 25)


Chance Allen Newton was born April 19, 1996, to Don Allen & Kathy Mae Eggers Newton Reynolds in Leon, Iowa. He set himself free on August 8, 2021, at the age of 25 years. Chance grew up in Kellerton, Iowa where he was currently living.

Anyone who knew Chance knew he had a heart of gold. If he was your friend, you knew you could count on him no matter what. He’d do anything for anyone.

Chance was a lover. He loved his family more than words can explain. His momma and sisters were his best friends, and he adored his nieces and nephews beyond measure.

Chance loved animals of all kinds, always trying to bring home a stray of some sort.

Chance loved life. He was an avid outdoors man and pretty athletic. Chance enjoyed mudding with his buddies, tinkering on anything with a motor, spending time with his “boys” rough housing, lifting weights, and playing softball.

His biggest passion was fishing, and he went with his brothers-in-law Jeremy and Kody every chance he got.

Chance was a true momma’s boy. He loved teasing his sisters that he got all the looks and is “momma’s favorite.” If his nieces and nephews were near, you could be sure there’d be wrestling, and jokes played.

Chance was preceded in death by his dad, Don Newton; stepdad Dan Reynolds; nieces Ashlynn Richards and Brooklynn Eggers; all of his grandparents; an aunt & two uncles.

Those left to cherish Chance’s memory are his mom Kathy Reynolds of Kellerton, IA; sister Crystal (Jeremy) Eakes, nieces Kinzee Eggers, Addison Eakes, nephew Tyson Nall of Murray, IA, niece Jamesin Eakes of Moline, IL; sister Heather (Kody) Vogel of Lamoni, IA, nephews Taylor & Caleb Richards of Eagleville, MO; brother Chad Jacobs, niece Isabella Jacobs, nephew Weston Jacobs of Oxford, IA; his “other brothers” Aaron Keller, Nick Conyers, Brandon Thran, Kenneth Hardeman, Rich Segar, Justin Herrera; as well as other relatives and many friends.
