Obituary: Don Norris (posted 11/8/18)
Memorial services November 18, 2018 in Evanston
Moapa Valley Mortuary
Donald Brian "Don" Norris, age 62, passed away Thursday, November 1, 2018 at his home in Logandale, Nevada surrounded by his family. He was born April 7, 1956 in Gary, Indiana. His parents were Richard Lawrence and Francis Lillian Schultz Norris. On February 21, 1991 he married Crystal Lee DeGroot in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Don grew up in Southern California until at the age of 13 when his family moved to the area near Challis, Idaho where he spent his next 4 years. His family then moved to the rural area of Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness in Idaho near Orofino, where he finished high school. There he gained a great love for the outdoors - fishing, hunting, horseback riding and helping his family with their outfitting business.

Don served in the US Air Force from 1974 to 1977 before moving to Wyoming to work in the Gas & Oil Industry with his brother, Dave. He found great success in this industry, moving up as his experience grew. In 2003 he and a business partner, along with their wives, began their own oilfield business which was jointly operated for 6 years. That business is still in operation.

He and Crystal raised their family in Big Piney, Wyoming until 2005 when they moved to Evanston, Wyoming and then semi-retired to Las Vegas, Nevada. In March of 2018 they downsized their home to Logandale, Nevada with plans of living a quiet life enjoying the outdoors and warm weather.

Some of Don’s passions were muscle cars, classic rock and sport fishing. He always made sure his family had a great time together.

He and Crystal enjoyed yearly fishing trips to Mexico, Costa Rica and many other places to fish for marlin and sailfish. He and his friends placed in several fishing tournaments in Manzanillo, Mexico.

Survivors include his sweetheart, Crystal of Logandale, Nevada; two daughters and two sons: Amber (Jason) Laird of Casper, Wyoming; Jennifer Gaston of Salt Lake City, Utah: Bryon (Jada) Gaston of Pinedale, Wyoming; Brian (Cara) Norris of Cheyenne, Wyoming; seven grandchildren: Ava, Kyler, Eli, Korbin, Sterling, Macayle and Rogan; two brothers: David Norris of Loveland, Colorado and Darrell (Bev) Norris of Evanston, Wyoming.

Memorial services will be held Sunday, November 18, 2018 at 11:00 am at the Bear Center Pavilion in Evanston, Wyoming with a reception immediately following. Friends and family are invited to sign our online guest book at www.moapavalleymortuary.com.

ANIMAL/SHELTER Art Exhibit Nov. 1 – Dec. 29 at Mystery Print Gallery (posted 10/30/18)
Reception Nov. 1
Have you ever stopped to wonder how our animal neighbors protect and shelter themselves? That has always been an avid interest of Mystery Print Gallery's owner, David Klaren. He has pondered and noted nests, hives, colonies, burrows, eggs, shells, chrysalises, skins, or camouflage, just to name a few.

With that in mind, he has invited members of a current generation of contemporary artists who are tackling and interpreting environmental and animal subject matter in fascinating ways and with a solid conceptual foundation executed in contemporary and traditional materials and styles to exhibit thematic pieces of art in his gallery. David says, "I personally gravitate towards this kind of work, finding it refreshing and exciting."

Entitled "ANIMAL/SHELTER", the exhibit opens on November 1, 2018, with a reception from 5:00 to 8:00 P. M., public invited. It will close on December 29, giving the public an opportunity to visit the gallery during Pinedale's Christmas festivities and the holiday season.

Local participating artists are: Cristy Anspach, Richard Burke, Mae Orm, Delsa Allen and David Klaren of Pinedale; JB Bond of Daniel; Holland Dutton of Cora; and Charmian McLellan of Boulder. Out-of-Sublette County participants include Alissa Davies, Boulder, Colorado; Jenny Dowd, Alpine, Wyoming; Camellia El-Antably, Eric Lee, and Mark Vinich of Cheyenne, Wyoming; Margaret Haydon, Laramie, Wyoming; Jun Ishida, Brooklyn, New York; Mona Monroe, Alta, Utah; Bronwyn Minton, Jackson, Wyoming; and Paul Postam, Farson, Wyoming.

David is encouraging and welcoming the artists to approach the theme seriously or humorously. The artwork may be fun, funky, fantasical, science fictional, intellectual, minimal, or environmental, giving show viewers the opportunity for interaction and deep discussions with the artists about the creative process and the significance of each piece.
