This bugga' was crazy but smart, I know we shared Matsumoto's Algebra II class and I didn't know what I was doing in that class and was always asking him for help! Norris and I were both from Honolulu and I can still see his face and his voice as we goofed off in class. Years later I found out that he became either the News Director or General Manager of Honolulu's Channel 9 CBS affiliate KGMB the same time Neil Everett of ESPN Sports anchor was the Sports News anchor...going to miss you bruddah, aloha!

I first met Norris in Honolulu in the late 90's when he was news manager at KHON TV in Honolulu running the top rated news in Hawaii.  I was able to borrow his 1966 and 1967 Kappa yearbooks to scan and post on the JHS web site.  We had a long talk about his days at Johnson and how he was the Kappa photographer and how much fun he had back then.  Norris will be missed not only by the Falcon family but all of those who worked for him in the television business in Hawaii.
