I hope Mike's services were meaningful, comforting, lovely and memorable. Ralph and I wouldn't have missed it for the world had we not been out of state with our grandson. We still can't believe that he is gone, and now we must continue without him. Ralph and I both just loved Mike. Like few others, Mike was a person that you liked more with each and every meeting. He was genuine, charming, smart as a whip, never showboated, added to every conversation with meaningful dialog. That his like won't come this way again is patently true.

Mike and I attended school together and he was a great friend. Mike was one of those rare individuals that brought happiness to everyone that he knew. We will never forget Mike.

Mike Norris was one of the sweetest men we ever knew. Always a smile and kind words. He will be terribly missed at White Elephants, dinner parties and "away" weekends but will always hold a place in our hearts!

Gary Michael Norris passed away on June 12, 2016, after a long and courageous struggle with lung disease. Mike was a remarkable man with a keen mind who was deeply kind and caring.

A Memorial Service will be held on Thursday, June 16th, at three o’clock in the afternoon, at Bradshaw Carter Funeral Home, 1734 West Alabama Street, Houston, Texas, officiated by the Reverend Jimmy Grace of St. Andrews Episcopal Church. A reception will follow from four o’clock in the afternoon until six o’clock. A private burial will follow in Corsicana, Texas, Mike's hometown.

Mike was born to Wayne and Winnette Norris on November 25, 1942. He was the middle of three brothers. He was preceded in death by his parents and by his brother, William Anthony.

Mike is survived by his brother Ronald Norris and his wife, Wanda; niece and nephew, John Norris and Becky Norris Hayslip, her husband Danny and their children Alysa and Garrett. Mike is also survived by his loving fiance, Dianne Yeomans, and his dear friend, Janie Mullins.

Mike retired following a career in banking and treasury management. He was a graduate of the University of Texas and a U.S. Army veteran.

We want to thank Mike's physicians, Dr. Alvin Blaustein and Dr. David Berman, as well as the staff of Unit 3D at the Michael DeBakey Veterans Medical Center, for their care during his illness.
