Age: 52

Dana Videl Newman was born in Fargo, ND on July 18, 1971, to Allan Robert Newman and Sylvia Small. He was a member of the Assiniboine Sioux tribe of Fort Peck, MT, the Three Affiliate Tribes and White Earth Chippewa tribe.

When Dana was 1 years old, his mother passed away and he then lived with his grandparents until the age of 5 when they could no longer care for him, and he was placed in an orphanage in South Dakota. His father Allan, Sr. and Carol Newman raised him and his brother Allan in Mandaree, ND. Dana attended Mandaree School into his teen years and later received his GED. He then went onto attend Job Corps in Kalispell, MT and Clearfield, UT where he received his Welding certificate in 1996. Dana met Valerie Coen and to this union they had two children: Tristan and Maximus.

Dana worked 20 years in MS with various welding companies. He came back to Mandaree and worked as a welder in the roustabout field with Baker Consulting and later West Segment under Dan Hunts Along. He was currently working for Maintenance/Roads for West Segment under Curtis Hall.

Dana was an awesome drummer and played alongside Wallace Chase and Wilbur Hunts Along. He also played with the Saddle Butte Drifters and Bird Bear boys. He often played for fun and for various events hosted by the community.

Dana was united in marriage to Nina Finley on June 29, 2000. His favorite words to describe his wife was “The love of my life”. Together they enjoyed fishing, cooking out and camping. He was a master chef. They also enjoyed playing 4 hand and dice with family and friends. You would often see them driving to the lake in their gray Nissan Frontier. They were never apart, everything they did, they did together. He was a true Vikings fan. And he lived life to the fullest the best he could. He was also very artistic and could draw free hand like nobody’s business.

His kind, quiet personality will be deeply missed by all knew and loved him. He would say, “It’s not goodbye, but see you later”.

Dana is survived by his wife Nina; Mother, Carol; Children, Tristan and Maximus Newman; Stepson, Travis Finley; Brother, Allan, Jr (Trena); Sister, Michelle; Nephews, Jordan, Arlin, Skylar, Daryl, Jr. and David; Grandchildren, Marty, Opal, Ezla, Sansa and Hendrick.

He is preceded in death by his Parents, Sylvia Small and Allan, Sr.; Uncles, August, Jr., Harold and Cornelius.
