In Memory of

Norbert Konrad Przybilla Feb. 10, 1943 - Jan. 15, 2009

BOSSIER CITY, LA - Mr. Norbert Przybilla died at his home on Jan. 15th at age 65 after battling cancer. He was born in Beuthen, Germany on Feb. 10, 1943. Norbert moved to Louisiana in 1986 to pursue his business dreams. He proved to be very successful. He was very appreciative of those who helped him build the business he established in Shreveport, The European Car Centre. Norbert was a husband, father, brother, uncle and a dear friend to many. He loved Jesus Christ and found peace in God. He always enjoyed life and was fearless in all his endeavors.

Armed with a Masters Mechanic Diploma, Norbert began a racing career in 1965. During his racing years, he won over 6,000 trophies that included three German Championships (1970 - 1972). Norbert was even crowned the European Champion (1981). He raced Formula II Can Am and was sponsored by Porsche (1978 - 1984).

Even though Norbert was an ocean away and loved his American life, he never forgot his German heritage, family and friends. His name is still remembered by many German Race fans. He was a strong man that always lived life to the fullest.

We celebrate Norbert's life and know that he is now in a better place. He will be missed and remembered. Our thoughts and prayers are with Norbert's American family and friends.

Ein letzter lieber Gruss aus Deutschland.

Ingeborg Przybilla, Erhard Przybilla, Yvonne Przybilla & Johannes Oster.
