Richard Wayne “Rick” Norris
Richard Wayne “Rick” Norris, age 61, of Cassville, Missouri passed away Tuesday, April 27, 2021 at Cox Medical Center South in Springfield, Missouri.
He was born July 30, 1959 in Bellevue, Ohio, the son of Richard Allen “Dick” and Barbara (Voltz) Norris. On February 26, 1982 in Miami, Oklahoma he was united in marriage to Stacy Rose, who survives.

Rick grew up and received his education in Clyde, Ohio graduating from Clyde High School. After graduating he moved to this area where he was employed as plant manager at EFCO in Monett for eighteen years. Later he worked in York, Pennsylvania. When he returned to this area he worked as a manager at ASI in Monett, and later worked as an operations manager at WinTech from where he retired in 2016. He loved horses, fishing and riding his Harley-Davidson motorcycle. Because of his infatuation with airplanes he wanted to get his pilot’s license but could not because of a heart condition, so secretly he flew his brother’s plane. He especially loved spending time with the boys and grandchildren and having family come over. He was of the Baptist faith and was a member of Arnhart Baptist Church.
Services will be held at 3:00 P.M. Friday April 30, 2021 at First Baptist Church in Cassville, under direction of Fohn Funeral Home in Cassville. Pastor Jason Mackey and Scott Stearns will conduct the services.
