James Arnold Norris, age 83 passed away Tuesday, November 12, 2019. He was born July 25, 1936 to Roy Monroe Norris and Annie Dildine Norris.

To know him was to love him. We knew him as a loving husband, who loved his wife of 62 years like no other. We called him Dad, Pops, Papa, Ernie, and “Russ”. He loved his family and always taught them to love the Lord as he did. He showed that love by the way he lived every day. He loved his grandchildren and great-grandchildren, teaching them life lessons and a little mischief that he was known for. He loved his garden and was known to be able to fix anything. He loved to play Rook and was one of the best enjoying every game, and didn’t care to “shoot the moon” ever.

Arnold was preceded in death by his parents, Brothers- Jess Norris and Alfred “Baldy J” Norris of Sparta, TN, Sisters- Lela Mae Anderson and Betty Jo Cole of Sparta, TN.

Arnold is Survived by his loving wife of 62 years- Faye Daniels Norris
Daughters- Vickie Brady (Gary), and Angie Wilhite (Patrick) all of Sparta, TN
Son- Darrin Norris (Keleena) of Sparta, TN
Grandchildren- Kyle Brady (Kelsey), Tyler Brady, Sarah Layne (Levi), Collin Wilhite, Kylee Norris, Kolt Norris.
Great-Grandchildren- Zaiden Brady, Saylor Brady, Beckett Brady, Magnolia Brady, and Shepherd Layne.
Brother- Robert Norris
Sisters- Joyce Henley and Ruth Emerton
Several nieces, nephews, friends, and loved ones.
