Robert "Bob" Norin

SILVIS-Robert "Bob" Norin, 80, of Silvis, IL passed away at him home surrounded by his family. There will be no services at this time. Memorials in Bob's name may be made to Disabled American Veterans.

Bob was born on March 8, 1940 in Moline, Illinois to Charles and Mary Norin. Following high school, Bob joined the United States Army Airborne. He was united in marriage to Sharon Neyrinck on July 4, 1959 in Rapid City. After his time in the Army, Bob joined the East Moline Police Department, where he served for 25 years, retiring in 1990. He was very proud of his community and believed strongly in building a good relationship with those in the community. Bob had a wonderful sense of humor and could often be found playing practical jokes on his coworkers. Even after his retirement, Bob was always busy doing something, from fixing things around his house to house maintenance for his neighbors in Arizona while they were gone. While he was in Arizona, he became a big fan of the Diamond Back baseball team. Nothing was out of reach for Bob, at the age of 42, he started his journey in martial arts and at 43 he earned his black belt and when the weather was nice he could be found out on the golf course. Bob's greatest achievement though was being a grandfather; he absolutely adored his grandchildren and great grandchildren.

He is survived by his wife of 61 years, Sharan; sons Monty (Janet) and Darrin (Chellee); grandchildren Nicole (Dan) Thurman, Shelby (Nate Welch) Norin, Morgan Norin, and Kyle (Liz) Norin; great-grandchildren Carson, Alice, Renae, Riley, Myles, and Scarlett. He was preceded in death by his parents.
