RE: Roy A. Norris, Find A Grave Memorial # 167841763
Hi Thomas,
It's been a while; I was just wondering if you were ever able to find an address or phone number for Roy's grandson Jonathon?

Cheers, Rich

RE: Roy A. Norris, Find A Grave Memorial # 167841763
Hi Thomas,
As best as I can determine Roy had 2 children, Ronald (who I believe had no children) and Eileen.

This from Eileen's obit:
Lillian Eileen Norris Hirz -
Age 59 of Erie, passed away unexpectedly at her home on Friday April 26, 2013. She was born in Erie on April 8, 1954 a daughter of the late Roy and Dolores Fischer Norris.

In addition to her parents she was preceded in death by her husband Thomas Hirz and one brother Ronald Norris.

She is survived by her Son Jonathon Hirz and his wife Melanie of Lyndora, Pa., four grandchildren; Victoria, Gabriel, Ashleigh and Thomas Hirz; one Aunt, Eileen Farnham of Erie and her dear friend Kenneth Schwab of Erie.
(Erie Times-News; Apr. 29, 2013)

Hope this gives ya something to go on; you may be able to find Roy's grandson in Lyndora. I'm sure he would be thrilled to have his grandfather's military photo.

Happy hunting,
