Norman Lee Langhorne Obituary
NORMAN LEE LANGHORNE II, of Moreno Valley, CA, passed away on November 26, 2016, after a long and courageous battle with cancer. Norman was born in Orlando, Florida, on January 2, 1959. His early life was spent as an Air Force dependent, traveling with the family, to various stations. The family finally settled local in Sunnymead, CA, which later became the city of Moreno Valley, CA. Norman enjoyed his high school years at Moreno Valley High School, and excelled in academics and many other activities. During his senior year, he was appointed as the senior cadet to lead the Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFJROTC). As he graduated high school, Norman was presented with a presidential appointment to the U.S. Air Force Academy, in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Later he obtained his Bachelor of Science Degree and Master of Science degree in Computer Science from California State University, San Bernardino. Afterwards he was employed as a Senior Software Engineer with several government defense agencies in the local area. In 2011, Norman relocated to the Washington DC area and worked with a government defense agency in support of the mission at the Joint Air Defense Operations Center (JADOC). He was responsible for the analysis of the Enhanced Regional Situation Awareness (ERSA) software components and supported the Air Force Forensics Systems. In April of this year 2016, he remained committed to Trident's Missile mission as a Senior Software Engineer and Project Manager, as he continued his battle with cancer. Norman was a valued and versatile member of the Trident Missile team for over ten years. In late 2013, Norman was engaged to his fianc‚, Awa Eva Dia. The couple met in Upper Marlboro, Maryland. Eva was a devoted partner throughout Norman's relationship. Norman, nicknamed "Gene," had a bigger than life personality. He was very private, and was sometimes called, "secret agent man." Norman thought this was a very funny nickname but he thought it described him well. Family, fast cars, and football were his pastimes. He loved Chevrolet Corvettes and spent many hours in traffic school sharing his traffic violation stories. Norman's favorite car was made in America and his tickets were paid in the same place. Norman "Gene" Lee Langhorne II, is survived by his mother, Katrina D. Langhorne; father Norman L. Langhorne and his wife Suzy Langhorne; his brother Mark Langhorne, and his wife Sherri Langhorne; his sister Janice Langhorne; and his fianc‚ Miss Dia, along with a multitude of relatives and exceptional friends.
