We Remember

NORTON, Richard “Dick”

January 30, 1934 — September 7, 2022

Dick Norton passed away peacefully on September 7, 2022. He leaves a legacy through his family: his three daughters & their husbands, Donna & Darryl Jost, Jan & Rob Rauter, and Margo & Russ Wideman; his nine grandchildren; and his 13 great-grandchildren, with one on the way. His memory will also be carried on by his sister & brother-in-law, Marlene & Rudy Balzer; his numerous nieces and nephews; and his many dear friends. He will be missed dearly by his sweetie, Elaine Fisher, and her family. He goes to join those who have gone on this journey before him, his wife Barbara; his granddaughter Kerri Gabbana; and his sister and brother-in-law Diane & John Currie.

His loved ones will cherish memories of him forever, such as his famous waffles, and how on Christmas morning he made them for the entire family; his loving and caring ways; and how very funny he was.

The family would like to thank the paramedic supervisor, the first responders, and the KGH emergency staff.  They would also wish to express their gratitude to Dr Joshua for the compassion and care that he provided.

No Service will take place at this time. Please raise your glass in honour of his memory!

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to BC Cancer Foundation or Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada.
