April 4, 2012

Ronald L. Norton, age 78, passed away peacefully at home with his loving wife at his side. Fortunately his courageous struggle with cancer was short and relatively pain free.

Ron was born and raised in Southern California. He graduated from Mt. Carmel Catholic High School. He loved his Country and proudly served in the United States Air Force from 1953 to 1957. He retired in 1992 from Lockheed Martin where he was an Engineer. Ron also loved the outdoors. He loved to tell stories about backpacking and fishing in the Sierra's with his three daughters and his dog Grenny.

In 1980 Ron met and married his wife Nancee. Their friendship and love was strong and true until he took his last breath with her at his side. When they moved from So. Cal to Pocatello in 1993, it made life perfect.

Ron leaves behind his wife Nancee, his two loving and devoted friends Mark Samuelson and Linda Smith, his three daughters, Christianne, Gabrielle, Danielle and his loyal and now lonely pups, Hooch and Murphy.

The family wants to thank all our friends and family, both near and far, who have been so supportive and the wonderful caregivers who did so much to make him comfortable from the time this whole ordeal began a little over 2 months ago. A special thanks to our angels at Creekside Home Health and Hospice. To our Niki, our Toni, our Brandie, our Kara and especially Susan, Thank You so much. We would have been lost without you.

At Ron's emphatic request, there will be no funeral or memorial service. He will be cremated and come back home. Instead of flowers, a donation to the Pocatello Animal Shelter would make him smile.
