Warren H. Norton, 78, of Cheyenne died Dec. 22nd at the Davis Hospice Center. He was born February 23, 1935 in Aspen to Earl and Dorothy Norton.
Warren served in the Air Force during the Korean War
. He was an Air Traffic Controller at JFK and Newark airports from 1957-1986; a career during which he earned many awards. Warren was most proud of the FAA's "We Point With Pride To" and "Air Traffic Recovery Effort" awards. Warren met Helen Harwood while they both served in the Air Force. Warren and Helen raised their daughters in a wonderful neighborhood on Oxford Road in Colonia, New Jersey.
They enjoyed their retirement years; 10 years in Maine, residing on Swan Lake; 7 years in Southampton, NJ., and finally to Cheyenne in 2003. Warren developed and valued the friendships he made along the way. He was an extraordinary card player who loved woodworking, tinkering in the garage and traveling. Warren was a selfless man and enjoyed volunteering as a cook at Pemberton United Methodist Church; parking cars at Cheyenne Frontier Days and visiting patients for Cheyenne Mended Hearts. Warren was the ultimate husband, Dad, "Pop" and "Pop-Pop" to his family. While cherishing our memories, we will miss him immensely.
