Louis Parker Norton

Norton, Louis

March 27, 1935 — June 10, 2014

Louis Parker Norton died peacefully on Tuesday, June 10, 2014, in Davis, surrounded by family.

Louie was born to Morene and Ben Norton in Blanchard, Oklahoma, during the dust bowl on March 27, 1935. In search of work the family moved to Oregon in 1938. From 1938 until 1951 the family moved 12 times, enrolling Louie into 12 different schools until they settled in Davis in 1951.

Louie had two brothers, Edward (Eddie) and Hubert (Huie) and two sisters Myrtle and Lawanda. Louie was a Davis High School Graduate; class of 1953. He met the love of his life Nadine Sobrero in May of 1954. They married on Aug. 11, 1956, and had four boys: Dirk, Bryan, Cal and Jeffrey. Louie established a successful heating and air conditioning business in Davis. He loved to work; in his final days he was still checking with his sons on which jobs were complete.

Louie was a devout Jehovah’s Witness and his faith brought him a great deal of comfort. Most of all he loved his family. He was a man with a gentle giving open heart who we all loved and will greatly miss. Louie was diagnosed with Acute Myelocytic Leukemia approximately a month ago. He made the decision to come home to be surrounded by his family and live his final days surrounded by love and his faith.

Louie is survived by his loving wife Nadine; sons Dirk, Bryan (Jody), Cal (Kim) & Jeffrey; and grandchildren Tyler, Ryan, Shanda, Kelsey, Spencer, Gino, Christopher, Shane, Bradley, Madison and Mackenzie. He also leaves many nieces and nephews. Services will follow at a later date. In lieu of flowers please make donations to Yolo Hospice.

The family would like to express its appreciation to Yolo Hospice for their compassionate care and to Dr. Sonia Reichert who helped us through some difficult decisions. Thank you to his many devoted friends, family and members of Kingdom Hall who visited often.
