We have very fond memories of Norvel when he and Barb belonged to Swartz Creek United Methodist Church. They were always available to help where help was needed and actually were the Pillars of the church. Norvel was so proud of his family and always kept his grandchildren active in the church. He displayed a great compassion for others and was a man of great faith. Our thoughts and prayers are with Barb and family. Jim and Jean Florence
