He was born Aug. 21, 1990, in Talladega, Ala., a son of Michael and Kathy (Cavanaugh) Newcomb, of Danville.

In addition to his parents and girlfriend, he will be deeply missed by his twin sister, Jenny Newcomb, of Danville; two sisters, Katie Newcomb, of Montgomery, and Stephanie and husband Michael McNelis, of Philadelphia; his dogs, Bandit, Briar, and Blaize; and cat, Spice.
