Gary Norton

October 14, 1954 — January 3, 2023

Gary Lynn Norton of Thatcher, Arizona entered into eternal rest January 3, 2023 after a brief illness. Gary was born on October 14, 1954 to Norman & Barbara ( Good) Norton. Gary attended school in Pima, Arizona and upon graduation he joined the Army. He was a very proud Legionnaire whom unselfishly volunteered his time to his community. He proudly served on the Honor Guard & was on the House Committee. He enjoyed helping the Women's Auxiliary and wherever he was needed. He truly enjoyed helping others and so graciously did so with a smile! Gary was a loving & friendly ol' soul he never met or knew a stranger. Gary met his lovely wife Deborah in 1993 and two years later they were married. The happy couple raised Jessica Stephens, Randy & Colter Norton. Gary's pride in life was raising his grandson Connor (Cricket).
