Norman Lee Lotts, Sr.

May 24, 1932April 1, 2021

Norman Lee Lotts, Sr. was born on May 24, 1932 in Dayton, Ohio to Albert Eugene and Zana Lotts. The Lord called him home on April 1, 2021 with his children, grandchildren and great grandchild surrounding him.

He married Marilyn Cumi Lotts on June, 18, 1954.

He is survived by his three children Norman L. Lotts, Jr of Dayton, Ohio; Robyn Ferro (Mark Ehrichs) of Litchfield Park, AZ; and Bob Lotts (Mary) of Phoenix, AZ. Grandchildren: Joseph Lotts, Claire Townsend (Darian), Michelle Ferro, Brian Ferro, Brian Bachman and Mandy Akers. Great Grandchildren: Ella Mari Townsend and Donovan Bledsoe.

He was preceded in death by his wife of 61 years, his mother, father and siblings Betty Long, Gene, Jim and Johnny Lotts.

Norman was a water well driller and owned his own business (N.L. Lotts Well Drilling) for nearly 40 years before he and Marilyn moved to Phoenix. Norman had several jobs while in Phoenix because HE LOVED to work. In fact, he would have worked until the day he died if someone would have let him. Norman was also a regular attender of the Sun City First United Methodist Church prior to the COVID pandemic and at that point he and Robyn learned all the technology to watch church services from home.

Norm loved his family and always perked up when the grandkids and great granddaughter were around. He loved Christmas and will be missed greatly!

The funeral services and interment will be held on Thursday, April 8, 2021 at West Resthaven Funeral Home, 6450 W. Northern Ave. Glendale, AZ at 1:30PM.

have a memory or condolence to add?


April 9, 2021

We’re so sorry for your loss. One of my favorite memories of Norm is sitting in a smoky breezeway at Grandma Woody's house on Xmas Eve, where he, Jack & the other men would tell some of the funniest stories I’ve ever heard. And how Norm, my dad and some others would hand-churn homemade ice cream for family parties & how Norma & Marilyn were always such great hosts. Laura & I will cherish all of the memories & fun times we had with Norm & Marilyn. Love Dave & Laura Woody
