~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Norman Autrey passed away after a two year battle with cancer on February 6th. A native of Rogers Arkansas, he was 74 when he passed. Norman was a United States Marine Corps Veteran with two tours in Vietnam. Eventually returning to Northwest Arkansas, he started multiple businesses. Entrepreneurship was his passion especially as it gave him the ability to create opportunity and help others. Building and running multiple recycling companies in the last 35 years Norman created many jobs and kept the world from land filling tons of materials that could be reused. Beekeeping was one of his hobbies that he felt helped the bees and the environment. Norman enjoyed learning from others, helping people in need, and beating everyone he played in chess. Norman was preceded in death by his father Earl Autrey, and mother Ivie Autrey. He is survived by his brothers Marvin Autrey and Jimmy Autrey, his wife America Autrey, his children Marty Autrey (Erin) and Marnie Jackson (Aaron), and his grandchildren Austin Autrey (Deborah), Sydney Autrey, Savannah Autrey, Allison Autrey, Luke Jackson, Max Autrey, and Sophia Autrey. In keeping with Norman’s wishes he will be cremated and interred in the Fayetteville National Cemetery. God Bless you Norman and Semper Fi.

Norman and I were students at the same time in Rogers High School. Certainly sad to read that he is gone. Held him in high regard during the short time I knew him. Instantly recognized his picture in the news despite not seeing him since school days back in 1964. After my tour of Army duty, I too have lived in Springdale since 1968. Was born in Lowell, so a lifetime resident. Hard to imagine not bumping into him, or any other classmate, all these decades. Happy to have known him for the few years in High School.
