My sincerest condolences to the Norton family. I was honored to write his bio, 'Believe--Journey from Jacksonville.' Mr. Norton made me feel at ease and I was enriched by his bio and the struggles he endured. A remarkable man with a stellar record. I'm grateful to have known him. john v amodeo

I just remember Kenny as a good guy, in high school. He always had a smile and was especially nice to one of my friends, just always taking the time to say Hi and tease her a bit when he walked past in the hall. She would blush but was happy. She passed away early in an auto accident in California in 1969. I know that your Dad also had an accident and that he had to persevere, as did you all. I am grateful to have known him a little and to see now all that he accomplished. My thoughts are with you at this difficult time.

KENNY R.I.P. IN 1973, I REMEMBER AS A LITTLE GIRL, MY FAMILY AND I WERE LIVING IN MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN. MY SISTER AND I HAD A BEDTIME SCHEDULE THAT WAS TIGHT. MY MOM AND DAD LET US STAY UP PAST OUR CURFEW, ONLY SO WE COULD SEE THE BOXING MATCH, OF KENNY BREAKING THE JAW OF THEN, CASSIUS CLAY, WHO IS NOW KNOWN AS MUHAMMED ALI. KENNY WAS FROM THE LITTLE TOWN OF JACKSONVILLE, ILLINOIS, WHERE WE HAD LIVED AT THE YEAR BEFORE MOVING TO MILWAUKEE. WE FOUND OUT KENNY WAS GOING TO TO BE HOME DURING THE SAME TIME WE WERE GOING TO BE THERE. I WAS AT MY AUNT HAZEL AND UNCLE PAUL'S HOUSE ON ANNA STREET WHEN KENNY WAS JOGGING PAST. I REMEMBER MY MOM (BARBARA DANIELS- WILSON) INTRODUCING MY SISTER AND I TO KENNY. I FOUND OUT YEARS LATER, KENNY WAS A TRACK STAR FOR HIS HOMETOWN. ANOTHER TIME WE GOT TO STAY UP LATE WAS WHEN KENNY ACTED IN THE MOVIE MANDINGO. PARENTS CENSORED WHAT THE KIDS WATCHED BACK THEN, SO WE HAD TO CUT THAT MOVIE SHORT AND GO TO BED A LITTLE EARLIER WHEN A SCENE NOT APPROPRIATE FOR KIDS WAS SHOWING. KENNY, YOU WILL BE MISSED AND IS A LEGEND IN YOUR TIME.

I am a better person because of knowing you! You were truly a gentle giant. I was so honored that you allowed me into your world and have never been treated so much like a lady as from you and your friends. You will be missed by so many! Save me a place..... Love Deb

As a class mate at JHS, thanks for the memories. My greatest clam to fame was our sop. year tackling practice. I was told to be the ball carrier and Ken was to tackle me. He did what he was told, ending my football by dislocating my sholder. Oh well.
RIP, Ken.
