The children were delighted by his care and compassion; and he was filled with joy to be a part of their learning environment.  Twenty-seven years ago, he met the love of his life, joined heart and hands with Christine, and life was made whole and sweeter for his every thought and words included a sweet melody called “Chris.”  Norris loved traveling attending car shows up and down the east coast. Norris, Kevin and Roger would annually travel to Ocean City for a “guy’s trip” just to relax and enjoy the water and blue skies.
