Charles is survived by his wife, Beverly Bryson Norton and many dear cousins and special friends. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a sister, Martha Jane Norton and an infant twin brother. Special thanks go out to the staff of the Fountainview Center for his excellent care and to the Kemp family for their love and support during his extended illness.
