Norris was a man with many facets to his life. He was born in Alabama and went on to serve 2 years in the Army. He was a dedicated volunteer to The Gideons International and a very active member at Parma Heights Baptist Church for over 60 years. In his down time, he enjoyed watching his favorite teams, the Indians and Browns, and playing sports. He was on the church softball and golf teams and was in the Stroker Golf League. He was a prolific writer of poetry, penning over 100 verses to family and friends. But most of all, Norris loved his family. He will be remembered for his witty humor and his infectious laughter and smile; he made friends no matter where he went. He will be missed greatly.
