Dick Norris passed away at his home in Millinocket on Friday morning, May 3rd, after a long illness. He was born and raised in Fort Fairfield where he graduated from high school in 1958. He joined the US Army in 1960 and returned to Maine in 1963. He lived in Caribou, Maine; Burbank, California; Sanford, Maine; and finally settled in Millinocket, Maine where he lived for the last 28 years. He worked in restaurant and retail sales management, as a sheet metal fabricator, as a film technician for Technicolor, and started two successful businesses. One was Nordick refrigeration services in Sanford, the other was the Movie Kingdom, with video rental stores in Millinocket and East Millinocket. He rented movies to the town of Millinocket for many years with his wife, best friend, business partner and tireless caregiver, Jean Norris, until they retired together in 2011.

His parents, Roland and Glenna Norris of Fort Fairfield, and his sister, Linda Crooker of Lincoln, predeceased Dick. He is survived by his wife Jean; his sister Sandra; his brothers Bob, Greg, Larry and Jeff; his children Jon, Rian, Keith, Martha, Dicky, Bobby, Denise, Shelley, Joey and Jolene; 22 grandchildren and 23 great grandchildren.

Dick loved to sing, was an avid jitter bugger, and enjoyed riding motorcycles. He was a member of the Elks and was active in the Episcopal Church. He was a fan of the Kansas City Chiefs, the music of Brookes and Dunne and rarely missed an episode of the Price is Right. He especially loved his two Chihuahuas, Tootsie and Peppy, who were his constant companions and faithful protectors.

A celebration of Dick’s life will be held at St Andrews Episcopal Church, 40 Highland Avenue, Millinocket on Friday, May 10, at 2:00 PM, followed by a brief reception. Friends are invited to visit with the family from 12 until the service begins at 2. Please make any memorial contributions to St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church.

I really am unsure as to what to say. You were so many amazing things! You were a brother, a friend, a husband, and yet a one of a kind grandfather! I'm truly am sorry for never telling you how sorry I am for what I put you and nana through when you tried to help me in the worst of times! I'm also super sorry I didn't get to say goodbye nor tell you I loved you just one last time! You were a blessing, just sucks that none of us got enough time with you. I love you so much and miss you! it's almost is like a piece of me is missing without you, I call nana and hoping I hear your voice and yet that doesn't happen or I'll go over for a visit and look for you and your no where to be found! I am especially sorry I wasn't there to lay you to rest, I tried the time honestly just wasn't a good time. I also want to say that I never got enough time to call either, I know I should've but I didn't. If I could ever get five minutes to see you again I would thank you for so many things and tell you I love you so many times. But, I'd especially let you know that your my hero, you helped me when indeed i5t most and loved me even when I couldn't love myself! Thank you so much for all of that I love you so much and that will never change, not a day will go by where I wont miss you, think of you, or even love you less! I also want to thank you for making nana's days a little brighter and her smile a little wider! She loved you so much, we all do! So, all I want to say before I end this is that we love you and I personally hope your doing well! Maybe you even get to see sassy everyday. To bad we won't know though. I love you and miss you. See you soon. -KP
