    To the family of Bob When I think of Bob I think about his life how he was so proud of being a farmer for over 100 years I sensed he believed that hard work and honest sweat was the building blocks of a person. He believed farming provided a education for life no other occupation teaches so much about birth,growth and maturity in such a varity of ways Dave spent many years working and milking and building barns on the farm has many fond memories of the Norris brothers. Farming was more then a profession it was a way of life. A life well lived.

    I spent many hours working for Rose and Sid in my younger years, Bob and Phil were always there. We shared many meals together. Bob and Phil were great teasers. We had many laughs and good times. There is a place in my heart for all of you. God Bless You Bob. My condolences to all of the Norris family.

    On behalf of my family, please accept our condolences on your loss. I had the opportunity to meet Bob through my childhood friendship with his nephew and niece Arthur and Sue, and through my father’s involvement in the Bearspaw Lions Club. Bob always impressed me as a person who was gentle, kind, good, patient and faithful.
