On February 24, 2023, Norman Horwath was ushered into heaven and into to the presence of his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Norman was born on March 22, 1942, in Chicago, Illinois. Norman was predeceased by his father and mother.
Norman was known as the “man in black” as he often wore a black outfit and a black hat in memory of his true love Kathryn Scott. Norman and Kathryn’s cremains will be interred together.
After high school, Norman joined the United States Army. He was awarded the Silver Star for gallantry in action while serving in Vietnam. Always a proud soldier, he was a strong supporter of his fellow veterans.
After an Honorable Discharge in 1972, he went on to graduate from Wright Junior College and then from the University of Illinois. He went to work for the Hoover Company in the tool and die section. He worked as a machinist for several years until he finally chose Arizona as his home. Norm loved everything western. That included the attire, the music, and western dancing.
Norm hopes to be remembered as “the man in black” who never met a stranger and who was always ready with a joke to brighten your day and to lighten your load.
Norman was very grateful for his caregivers and to everyone who prayed for him during his illness.
“Adios my friends. I hope to see you at the great round-up in Heaven.”
Will miss you dear friend!
