John Francis Norr Obituary
John Francis Norr was born on Nov. 23, 1947 in Logan, Ut. He was the 1st born, son of Lois (Forsgren) Norr, and Francis M. (Buss) Norr.
His grandparents were Lottie & John H. Forsgren of Howell, and Irene & Francis Norr of Blue Creek.
John’s early childhood was in Tremonton. Later the family moved to Phoenix, AZ. All of John’s schooling was in Phoenix. But the summers were spent on the grandparents farms. John loved those summers exploring and having fun in Howell, and Blue Creek!
When John was 12 yrs. old, he and his grandma Norr, went out shooting. They spotted a Bobcat and began tracking it. They ended up spotting 3 bobcats and John shot off 3 shots. He killed two and mortally wounded the third. There was a article and picture about the incident in the “Tremonton Leader”, titled “Straight Shooting Arizona Lad”. John was always so proud of that!
John was always a hard worker! He owned his own motorcycle shop and made amazing custom motocycles.
Later he also worked for Airesearch/Garrett.
John was a very kind, extremely giving person. He
has always helped anyone he knew or saw that needed help. Many times giving them a place to stay, and feeding them. John has had an amazing about of friends in his life.
John was always very respectful and devoted to his parents. After his father passed away in 1994 he did everything he could to help his mother.
John lost his sight in the fall of 2011. He also suffered from debilitating nerve pain in his back and legs, as well as horrific headaches. But John wasn’t one to complain. His wife Deana was a tremendous help to John.
On Wednesday, April 24, 2013, John was found dead. An autopsy was performed, and it was found that he died of a massive heart attack.
A Celebration of his life was held on May 11, 2013 in Phoenix. Loved ones were able to share stories of John and his life. He was loved by so many! A final farewell was given to John with the releasing of doves to soar in the sky. It was very beautiful and moving. A perfect way to set John free.
