November 02, 1970 - December 05, 2015


Richard D. Norris passed away on Saturday, December 5, 2015 at age 45. He was born November 2, 1970 in Bellingham, the son of Don and Claudette Norris.

Richard attended Bellingham schools and graduated from Snohomish High School in 1991. His favorite activities as a youth were playing basketball and football, along with exploring the trails in Whatcom County. He enjoyed spending time at the McGary summer cabin, off road-4 wheeling, watching WWE wrestling and the Seahawks, listening to 80’s rock and spending time with his family.

Richard never met a stranger. He always had a smile and warm hello for everyone he met. His positive attitude and good nature was infectious and will be remembered by those who knew him.

  1. I only met Richard one time, in the company of his Mom, Dad, two sisters and their families, but I was struck by his good humor and the love that he showed to his family and theirs in return. I offer my condolences to all, especially to his Mom for the wonderful care she gave to him. May he rest in peace and in return send peace to those left behind.

    ‘m so sorry for your loss! Did you know that soon you’ll be reunited with your loved again! The bible says at John 5:28,29… “Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to resurrection of life… How comforting that is to be with your loved one again!

  3. To Don, and all of Richards loved ones. We just want you to know that our hearts ache for you on your loss of Richard. You are all in our thoughts and we are sending our love and sympathy to all of you.
