Nelson, Norrell - Los Angeles  
NORRELL S. NELSON April 5, 1966 - April 12, 2015 (Fresno, CA) Norrell began his newspaper career at the age of 15 at Tucson Newspapers Inc. working part time in the circulation customer service department. In 1985 he joined The Santa Barbara News Press as a district sales manager. He later became a zone manager responsible for all North County circulation and sales. His love for the newspaper business led him to executive positions at newspapers in New Jersey, Ohio and Michigan. He later joined The Fayetteville Obserever (Fayetteville. NC) as Circulation Promotion & Sales Manager and was later promoted to the position of Circulation Director. In 2001,the lure of sunny weather brought him to Southern California, specifically Northridge, where he joined the Los Angeles Daily News as Circulation Manager. During his career, Norrell gave back to the business by conducting workshops and speaking to groups at many national and regional circulation associations. He also served on the board of directors of a few associations and was a member in good standing of many state and regional associations. He loved Major League Baseball, especially the New York Mets, the team he fell in love with during his childhood days in White Plains, NY. He traveled to many major league stadiums during his life and was also a loyal fan of the NFL San Francisco 49ers. His kindness, generosity and witty sense of humor will certainly be missed by his many friends and associates. Norrell is preceded in death by his mother, Paula Nelson; and is survived by his dear sister; Brynne Nelson; uncle and aunt, George and Sondra Brucks; cousins Susan Brucks and Jonathan Brucks; and his loyal and loving dog, Kahlua. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Norrell's honor at of which he was a volunteer. We love you Norrell and we will miss you terribly! "GO METS"
