Tracy and I are very sorry to hear about the passing of Norris. It seem like we got to see him every week when we would stop by one of his pharmacies to pick up a prescription. He was also very helpful to us in many ways over the years. I really enjoyed talking to him about his vacations and of course playing some golf. I remember when I taught Zach driver’s ed and took him to a polevault camp in Abilene Texas. It was going to be a long drive and Norris asked me if I could make it the entire way. I told him that if I get tired I’ll let Zach drive and he just kind of gave me a grin and shook his head. He was always a great supporter of the STA community and schools. Norris will definitely be missed. Our prayers are with the Tureau family.
Tracy and David Swacker
