Post a Condolence

Norris and Marge were always very kind to me and my family. Norris was a hard working man whom I respected. My condolences to the family.

A gifted cattleman, Norris is one of the people I most respect. He hauled livestock for me for at least half my lifetime. No loading situation was too great a challenge for Norris, who took everything in stride. He and Marge were beloved friends of Manchester School. Norris had been one of my mother’s eighth grade students (Stone School, now Leroy Grange). My sincere sympathies to his family.

I was behind Norris on a sunny day about 12 years ago. We were both heading east on Hunter Road. Me, in my car, Norris in his truck pulling the livestock trailer. A car behind me decided to pass both of us, as we were approaching Beaverton Road I knew Norris was going to turn left and anticipated the worst. Norris, at 80 years young,,, saw the little car and didn’t turn until it passed him. He was at the corner. He saw the car passing at the intersection and avoided the accident. I called Marge when I reached my destination to report her husbands heroics. I really think he saved a life that day. RIP Norris.

Sorry for your loss Kay. My Dad always talked kindly of your Dad. He hauled so many cows for him. Thinking of you!

I’m so sorry for your loss. I have many fond memories of Norris and Marge over the years. From my early years of spending my summers working on their farm and taking his ponies to the local parades to treating his horses as a vet. Norris and Marge would get together with my parents and play cards often. One time in January it was so cold the car wouldn’t start so we stayed the night at there house. He always had a sharp memory and he could remember the people he met over the years.. My daughters will always remember getting to ride along in his wagon at the Monroe Cheese Days Parade. Norris and Marge both hold a special place in my heart and I will never forget them. May God Bless your families in this difficult time.
