Norman was born April 12, 1934 in Eastland, Texas to James and Margaret Watson (deceased).

Norman worked at Texas Electric (now TXU) for 45 years as an electrical engineer. He earned his Associates Degree in Electrical Engineering from Arlington State College. Norman’s joys in life were serving his church, camping and boating with his family, working with the Boy Scouts as a troop leader (attended the National Jamboree twice), volunteering for the Arlington Life Shelter, tinkering with cars, woodworking, and was an avid reader. He and Eileen enjoyed traveling together in retirement.
Norman was a man of deep faith who loved his God, his family and serving others. He will be dearly missed.
