Francis W. (Tare) Newbury, of Weston, died suddenly on Thursday, November 21, 2019.

The loving husband of Susan Elwell Newbury of 56 years. Born in Cambridge MA, Tare attended Shady Hill School, Milton Academy class of 1956 and earned his BA in economics from Harvard class of 1960. Upon graduation, Tare joined State Street Bank, eventually becoming senior vice president in charge of the New England Banking division. In 1981 he resigned to co-found Newbury, Piret and Company a Boston based Investment Banking firm and subsequently became CEO and co-owner of Devco Products, a manufacturer of high tech windows.

Tare was the treasurer of the 1960 class at Harvard and also a member of the Fox and Hasty Pudding clubs. He was a past member of The Country Club and Harvard Club of Boston and had leadership rolls in all his reunions at both Milton Academy and Harvard University. He was a firm believer of stewardship as evidenced by his chairing the finance committee at the Golden Ball Tavern in Weston for over 40 years and recently Chairman of the endowment for both the Tavern and the First Parish Church in Weston.

Tare's personal foundation was based on integrity and sharing. He was generous with both time and treasure, often asked for career guidance by those confronting change or uncertainty.

Among his greatest loves was his family, gardening with his wife Sue, music, sailing, traveling and being with friends.

He leaves his wife of 56 years Susan (Elwell) Newbury; a son, Joshua Ware Newbury of Weston; a daughter, Elizabeth Wickes Newbury of Hudson, a sister, Katherine Dexter McGill of Westwood; a sister-in-law, Nancy Gaylord Powers and husband, Philip L. Powers of Akron, Ohio and many wonderful nephews and nieces.

Jeff Barz-Snell will officiate. Burial will be private. There are no calling hours.
