Norman English Obituary

Norman David English, 89, of Wallace left this earthly life for his eternal rest on Friday, February 9, 2024 while surrounded by his loving family. 

He was born on October 26, 1934 in New Hanover County; the son of the late James David English and Mabel Meadows English Reilly.  Norman was also preceded in death by his son, David Wayne English; brother Ronnie James English; sister Lois E. Powell Eason and step grandson Junior Croom.

Norman served his country in the U.S. National Guard and faithfully attended Wallace First Assembly of God Church when his health permitted.

Surviving to cherish his memory is his best friend and loving wife of 70 years, Doris Sholar English; son Frankie English and wife Kim; foster daughter Judy Murray; grandchildren Bradley English, Brandon English and his wife Courtney, Josh English and his wife Dana, Justin English and Tyler English; great grandchildren Braylon, Brendon, Riley, Wren, Ripp, Haley, Connor, Logan, Dax, David, Luke, Gage and Hurley; step grandchildren, Tammy Bowen and Frankie Rodeffer; step great grandchildren Lakgen, Ayden and Carleigh; foster grandchildren, Steve Murray and Amanda Murray; numerous nieces, nephew, extended family and friends that loved Norman dearly.

Norman was a loving husband and caring father, grandfather, brother and friend. He enjoyed the simplest things in life, but his greatest joy was his family.  Norman was definitely a family man and all who knew him knew that he loved Doris and his family more than anything.  After being a truck driver for Worsley Oil Company for 32 years, he and Doris opened and operated the Shoe Hospital where they served many people of Wallace and surrounding areas.  Norman was a busy man who was always looking for ways to stay busy.  He continued to stay active by mowing grass up to last summer when his health would not permit him to do so anymore.  Norman was a happy man and wanted those he loved to be happy also.  He loved people and would give the shirt off his back to anyone who needed it.  He enjoyed going camping with all his family and spending quality time with each of them.  Norman will surely be missed but treasured memories will forever remain in the hearts of those who knew and loved him.
