Mark Thomas Norris, 74, resident of Irving, Texas, went to be with our Lord, surrounded by family, Thursday, August 29, 2019.

Mark was born on July 27, 1945 in Columbus, Ohio to father, Phillip Erdice Norris and mother Mina Eileen (Biddison) Norris, who predeceased him. He grew up in a loving Christian family with one brother and one sister.

Mark was a 1963, graduate of Richland High School and received a mechanical engineering degree from University of Texas at Arlington in 1968. After college, Mark proudly served in the United States Marine Corp Reserves with an Honorable Discharge. He began his engineering career at L.T.V, in Grand Prairie, and later went to General Dynamics in Fort Worth, before moving into the field of Equipment Engineering at Bell Helicopter in Hurst, Texas. Mark was a professional in the engineering field, with an unmatched work ethic, and dedication to excellence. He retired from Bell Helicopter after 35 years of service.

Mark married Delores (Dee) Harris and together they have made Irving, Texas their home, for the last 20 years. Mark loved trains, Nascar Racing, Rock n Roll music, Corvettes, and beaches. When Mark was on the beach he was a “happy camper.” Mark was an animal lover, especially his dogs; Shadow, Daly and Daisy. The last few months, Mark remained optimistic that he would recover from illness and resume his life at home.

He is remembered in love by his wife, Delores (Dee) Norris, brother, Daniel Phillip Norris, and wife, Cynthia of North Richland Hills, Texas, daughter Kelly (Caruthers) Harris, husband, Josh, and granddaughter Kelsey of Godley, Texas, and numerous nieces and nephews. Mark was preceded in death by his parents and sister, Nancy Norris Read of Corpus Christi, Texas.
