He promptly enlisted in the U.S. Navy where he served as an Air Technician in VC-5 Squadron aboard the USS Kitty Hawk CVA-63 before being honorably discharged in 1970. Upon his return to the States, he enrolled at AIMS Community College in Greeley, receiving an Associate of Arts Degree in Engineering Technology in 1972.

In retirement, Norris enjoyed traveling throughout the U.S. with Susan in their 5th-wheel travel trailer. He was active with the Ault VFW, Friends of the NRA and participated with Susan in numerous Honor Flight trips, helping veterans return to Washington DC.
Norris also enjoyed hiking, coyote hunting, firearms, shooting sports and camping. Most of all Norris was extremely proud of his service to country and commitment to his family.

Very sorry to hear that Norris has passed. We were friends during the 80's and 90's when I lived in Greeley. I moved away 20 years ago but still saw brother Don from Wheatland, WY at the gun shows and would receive a Norris update. May he rest in peace.
My condolences to all that loved him.

I met Norris working at the Engineering Building on County Rd 58 in the late 1970's. Oh we were so young and Mountain Bell was a great company to work for. Norris was always pleasant and seemed to always have a smile on his face. We worked in different departments and mostly just acknowledged each other. Our paths did not cross again until many years later when he and my husband Charlie worked together as Contract Inspectors for QWEST Communications. They became close buddies and had many conversations which included shooting, hunting, the family, and reflections of his time in the Navy. While we never did many things together, Norris always encouraged us to attend the Pioneer Christmas dinner and summer picnic.

Charlie said No One should ever have to endure what Norris went through his last couple of years. It was a valiant fight and it hurts to lose our friend. We know we will see him again one day. Our condolences to Susan and family, Charlie and Trish Gross

My brother, Norris, was a remarkable guy. I admired and loved him deeply, we had a close brother/sister relationship and, not only being family, he was my good friend. I thank God for blessing my life with 73 years of sharing our lives as brother and sister through good andsome painful times. No matter what the circumstances were, I always knew Norris had my back and that he loved me. I will miss his earthly presence more than words can express but I have hope that we will be together, in our forever home, with Jesus.
So many memories but the most cherished is the trip he and I made back to our home state of North Dakota with our Mother’s ashes. We spread her ashes in all the places that were dear to her. It was a trip together that I hold deeply in my soul.
Your little sis, Karla

I will miss Margarita Night with Norris and his great sense of humor. Always lots of fun. More impactful was the example he set of pride in his military service and the dedication he demonstrated in making veterans feel welcome and special as they participated in Honor Flight. His friendliness and can do attitude made working along side of him a joy. I'm lucky he touched my life. My sincere condolences to you Susan, and the family.
