David Alan Norrick, age 70, died on Saturday, August 17, after fighting cancer. He took his last breaths at home surrounded by family and friends.

David is survived by his wife of 45 years Linda (Norrington); sister, Barbara (Norrick) Humphreys of Kingston, TN; brother, Mark Norrick of Evansville; Aunts: Virginia Moore, Doris Waters, Delores Adams, Rose Bell, Shelby Bell; Uncle: Wayne Norrick (Esther). Brothers-in-law: Larry Norrington (Nellie), Jerry Norrington (Nancy); Sisters-in-law: Betty Craig, Dianna Wahl (Tom), Dolores Norrington; many nieces and nephews; Special Friends: Andy, Nick, Robyn, and Jeannie.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Betty, and father, Harold (World War II), brother Steven Norrick, and sister Rebecca Norrick.

David was a Vietnam War Veteran (1969-1971). Born in Evansville, David spent much of his childhood and early teen years in California. An avid traveler, he visited family in Tennessee, North Carolina and Virginia often; spent several weeks in Australia, a short time in Canada, and enjoyed visiting the Gulf Shores in Alabama. Some of his favorite pastimes included watching Nascar, cowboy movies and TV shows; taking fishing trips to Florida; working on cars and driving fast.

David was a born storyteller and a kid at heart. He loved to talk about his life and the people he met along the way. It was very rare that he didn’t have a grin across his face. He enjoyed good food and adored sharing meals with family and friends. David made friends everywhere he went including some of the restaurants around town he liked to frequent. He had a strong work ethic and his attention to detail was legendary. The discipline and dedication to service he learned from the Army never left him, as friends and family will attest.

Funeral services will be held 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, August 21, 2019 at Alexander North Chapel with burial to follow at Sunset Memorial Park. Friends may visit 1-8 p.m. on Tuesday, August 20, 2019 at the funeral home.
