Born on August 10, 1940 in Sampson Co., Wilbert was the son of the late Ned Lawrence and Geneva Hudson Norris.  He was a lifelong farmer, having a watermelon farm in Garland and retired from Turlington Lumber Company.  His favorite pasttime was fishing and loved spending time with his family and his two four-legged friends, Eddie and Baby.

Wilbert is survived by his wife of fifty-eight years, Barbara Carter Norris of the home; daughter, Brenda Norris Warren and husband, Gary of Sneads Ferry; three sisters: Dorothy Norris Bordeaux of Clinton, Lillie Norris Biegler  and Queen Norris Clark both of Garland; two brothers: Coleman Norris of Garland and Jarvis Norris of Burlington; two grandsons: Steven Warren and wife, Carrie and Adam Warren and wife, Carla Brooke and his three great-grandchildren: Millie Elizabeth Warren, Maxton Eric Warren and Hadley Edwards Warren.

He was preceded in death by his son, Eddie Graham Norris; sister, Velma Bullard; and his four brothers: Lawrence, Coy, Gordon and Leon Norris.

Wilbert was a kind, gentle man with a loving heart and great personality. He will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him – because to know him, was to love him.
