Norman Earl Newbold
March 23, 1957-December 16, 2014
Norman Earl Newbold, 57, of Syracuse passed away Tuesday following a hunting accident in Cache County.
Norm was born in Murray, Utah, and grew up in the Sandy and Roosevelt areas.
He served two years in the Chile Santiago Mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Soon after his return, he met his forever sweetheart, Janet. They were married in the Salt Lake LDS Temple on July 13, 1979, and the last 35 years have been filled with many travels around the world, church service, and love for family.
For the past five years, Norm was a dedicated bishop of the Trailside Ward in Syracuse. He truly loved helping members of the church and serving alongside many wonderful people.
Norm worked hard, played hard and will be loved and missed by countless people whose lives he influenced. For more than three decades, he managed multiple stores in wholesale electrical distribution and appreciated his friends, employees, and associates in the industry. He will be remembered for his infectious chuckle and love for family get-togethers, holidays, music, cruises, good food, hunting, and his dogs. He loved seeing movies with giant bowls of popcorn on his lap, taking trips to Disneyland, golfing and watching sports.
Norm leaves behind his beloved wife and his children Ryan (Melissa) Newbold, Curtis (Jackie) Newbold, and Manette (Travis) Fisher. He is also survived by his mother, Thelma Walker; step-father, Paul Walker; sisters Shauna (Ken) Crittenden and Charis (Jay) Stansell; brother Bob (Vauna) Newbold; and five grandchildren he loved dearly.
He is preceded in death by his father, Robert Newbold.
