Norris John Atkins
Following a valiant and determined struggle with Alzheimer’s, Norris left us on Sunday May 29, 2016 at the age of 86. Much loved husband of the late Celina (nee Richardson). Proud Father of Gordon (Karen) and Steven (Alice). Loving grandfather to Brian, Sandra Handysides (Daniel), Ryan and Christiana; and great grandfather to Hope Handysides. Dear brother of Letha Thompson and Lola McBain. Predeceased by brother George. Norris will also be missed by several nieces, nephews and his extended Richardson family. With the help and kindness of many caregivers, Norris was able to stay in his own home the place that brought him endless enjoyment, contentment and that he loved the most.
