Born September 15, 1933 in Mount Savage to William H. “Tuck” Sr. and Josephine Mae (Werner) Norris; he is preceded in death by his parents; wife, Anna "Lilly" M. Norris and a brother, William H. Norris Jr.
Chub was a U.S. Army veteran having served in Germany as a telegraph operator in the Infantry. He was employed with Mt. Savage Brick Yard as a truck driver, Kelly Springfield in the calendar room, the Allegany Board of Education at Fort Hill as a custodian where he retired, and with Monahan Paint Company. Chub was the “S” Club president at Mt. Savage School and was a Little League coach. He instructed hundreds of children, with the Mount Savage Berkley Program during their field trips, in the “Old Fashioned” way of butchering a hog on his property at Calla Hill. He was well known for his hog sausage.
You could never have met a more kind, caring, loving, compassionate, honest, and sincere person in your life. Chub was greatly loved by many and will be missed. Until we meet again in heaven, what a wonderful day that will be.
