Timothy Paul Norris, 51, passed away from natural causes on December 4, 2018 at his home in Denver Colorado. Tim Lived in Kansas City, Missouri during his grade school years, then in Olathe, Kansas while attending middle school and high school in Spring Hill, Kansas. He received his bachelor’s degree from Southwest Missouri State University and his master’s degree from Baker University. Tim was employed by DST Systems in Kansas City, Missouri and by Transamerica in both Clearwater, Florida and Denver Colorado.
Though baptized Timothy Paul, people knew him as Timmy, TP, Stormin’ Norman, or T-Nor, among other nicknames. Tim regularly bestowed nicknames upon those in his life as well. Although Tim appreciated Florida’s warm climate, his heart remained in Kansas City with its sports and barbeque. He loved talking Chiefs, Royals and KU Basketball with his dad during their evening chats.
Survivors include his father and mother Bill and Carmen Norris, sister, Valorie and his nephew Levi and his niece Simone. Tim also leaves behind many beloved aunts, uncles and cousins. Along with a wealth of dear friends everywhere he resided.

I worked with Tim at Transamerica for over 15 years and I considered him a good friend. I will miss our special conversations we had in the evenings after everyone left the office where we would discuss family, our work challenges, our heath and whatever else we thought of. Tim was one of the most genuine and truly caring people I have ever met. I will miss the way he made people feel special, just by ending the conversation with "thanks for you help sparky, daddy O or all star". And of course my favorite was Captain C. because that is what he called me for almost the entire time we worked together.
Love you Timmy, Captain C will never forget you!

Tim, I will definitely miss you both as a client and friend. Always so sweet and calling me buddy - loved that about you. You are now in the Lord's arms, safe, sound and joyful! Never had the chance to meet you in person, wish we could have accomplished that before you left this earth. May our Lord and Savior comfort your family in this difficult time, sending his angels to attend you. We will get to meet in person one day.

T Nor - "Maaaain" Earth was a better place with you here, Heaven now has the distinct privilege. As you know my feelings, from many amazing conversations, sometimes over a few suds; it's not only what you accomplish in life, it's what you overcome..it's not always quantity, it's quality..and we should always leave a room, as if you never left (leaving great impressions & memories). You my friend, hit the trifecta (gambling term definitely intentional, T Nor big laugh).
Condolences to your family & friends. We should all rest-assured that T Nor is now watching over us ALL, he has "your back, Sparky!" His family, was his absolute world! He spoke about his Mom, his Dad, his Sister, his Nieces, his Nephews, and others..always, always had great stories to share..he truly knew what was most important in life.
We will all be together again.
Until then T Nor, keep them laughing in Heaven and we'll keep your spirit alive through memories here on Earth I'm certain with laughter, as if you never left the room.
Rest in Peace Brother.."catch you on the flip side!"

This says the max length is 2000 characters. Tim in 2000 characters? Impossible! What a great man! What an impact he left on those in his circle of influence. What an impact he left on me. My heart has been heavy for the past 2 weeks knowing I will not receive a random late afternoon call from Tim anymore. He was a trusted friend for me as I have been navigating my way through a lot of changes at work. He always, ALWAYS, asked about my wife and kids. He was genuinely excited to hear about a project I was working on and selflessly offered guidance. Tim, I love you, I thank you and I miss you my friend. I offer my deepest condolences to his family.

I have worked for Tim for the last 4 years and want to say he's a great boss. He's a very sincere, giving, compassionate man. He was always happy and most days I was one of his Sparky's, but some days I was another one of his
buddy's. Hearing our nicknames always made me smile. He's is one of the best men I have met and he will definitely be missed. My deepest sympathy and prayers for the family.

I had the distinct honor and privilege of working with Tim for many years. He was one of the kindest people I have ever met. Any time I would see him, I would get a hug and a "hi little buddy." His smile was always genuine and his laughter was contagious. His compassion and concern for others was one of the things I admired most about him. I extend my deepest sympathies to his family. The world may have lost an amazing person, but Heaven certainly gained a beautiful soul. He will be greatly missed. Until we meet again my friend...

Tim would always come up, give me a big hug and say "what's up friend"? His hugs were warm and genuine. It didn't matter if we were solving a problem working together in the old DST days, or if I was working with him later as my client. He always treated you the same. Tim really cared about others and when he asked about you, he wanted to hear about you. He wasn't just asking to be pleasant. My biggest regret is Cory and I had always told Tim to come meet us in Vegas during March madness. We should have made it happen. I miss you and your hugs, friend!

I have known Tim for over 20 years and had the pleasure of working with him during many of those. Tim was an all around good man. It's amazing how many people have said, "he was the best person, he was so nice, so kind etc..". What a legacy when nobody has anything but good to say. I am so sorry for Tim's family and offer my sincerest condolences to them. He was a good man and will be missed by all that knew him.
