He was the second of three boys, one of who predeceased him 5 years ago. Norman attended St. Jago All Age, Porus Senior School and Beaumount Comprehensive. During his early childhood, into youth, Norman attended the Trinity Baptist Church in Porus, Manchester where he played an active role in Sunday School and Youth Fellowship. His involvement in both groups was outstanding.

In July 1984, Norman migrated to the USA where he resided permanently, although he made the United States his home, he always found time to visit relatives and friends back in Jamaica. His visits were usually delightful and memorable.

He was hospitalized but despite the excellent medical attention and family support, he succumbed to his injuries on June 14, 2020.

My greatest sympathy to the Linton’s family.I was introduced to Norman by a former Co-worker Laurel Wilson (willo)within five seconds of my introduction he bought me a drink.Since then,we became close friends and shortly after became coworkers.Whenever I needed directions to anywhere in Florida Norman just needed the number to direct me .you can never be sad around Norman,he always have a joke or just telling u how good god has been to him and how we are mortal and subjected to err.He is the kindest human being I have ever met.He has lived a good life.Rest in peace my brother and my friend.

Mr. Linton was a wonderful man we met him in 1997 when our mom died, he became like family to us. We were happy to have shared in fond memories with him and his wife Ms. Yvonne. We Remembered our visit to Florida in 2017 and spending a day with the Linton's.
They were very kind and loving made us feel like we were apart of their family. Our last and most recent memory was last December when they spent Christmas day with us. What fun we had reminiscing on the past, laughing and playing games. To our brother Chris, his wife Ms. Yvonne all his children , grandchildren, family and friends we offer our sincerest condolences. SIP Mr. Linton you will be missed.

Norman and I went to Beaumont College back in the 60s, unfortunately we never saw each other since we left College. I was saddened to hear of his passing, I wish to offer sincere condolences to his family.
God called you Norman he saw you struggling and released you of your pain.
I pray God’s encouragement and strength for the family at this difficult time 🙏
