He was born December 20, 1943, in Du Quoin, Illinois, and was the son of the late Robert “Bob” Norris and late Bernice Lorraine Moore-Norris of St. Ann, Missouri. He was widowed by Tiffany Brinkman-Bishop. He was a long-time resident of Hurley Manor apartments and enjoyed spending time with all of his neighbors and teasing the ladies. He was a long-haul truck driver for many years, and enjoyed it very much! He collected Elvis Memorabilia, Cars, and Trucks. He enjoyed watching western movies and the Jaguars playing each Sunday and spending time with his family! He is survived by his brother Robert Norris (Julie) and three children, Jerry Ray Bishop, Jr (Wendy), Jamie Jones (Lee), and Julie Parks (Chris). Grandchildren Brandon Zipperer, Jamaica Zipperer (Richard), Justina Harvey (Todd), Jessica Bishop (Bryan), Dillon Jones, Devin Jones, Katie Bush (Dillon), Cassidy Parks, and Cody Parks. Great Grandchildren Leigha, Gage, Adahlynn, Ashlynn, Bella, Tre’, Madison, Lilah, Landen, Adaline, Rylee Grace, Emilee, and Peyton, along with many nieces and nephews. He always had a smile on his face and a kind word. He never met a stranger and would give the shirt off his back or the penny in his pocket if it would help someone out. He was a jokester and loved telling stories but also loved hearing any of his children, grandchildren or great-grandchildren tell one! He was an amazing Son, Brother, father, uncle, grandpa, and friend. He loved everyone unconditionally and taught his children to do the same. He always bragged about his family members and loved each of them more than words can express. The Celebration of Life will be held Saturday, December 18, 2021, at 11:00 am at Terry Parker Baptist Church 7024 Merrill Road Jacksonville, Florida 32211 with a reception to follow at the church!
