Donald Ray Norman
Donald “Donnie” Ray Norman passed away Thursday, December 19, 2019, at Baptist Hospitals of Southeast Texas, Beaumont, at the age of sixty-five. Donnie was born in Bald Knob, Arkansas, on January 15, 1954, to Lowell “Son” and Swan Norman.
He lived in Sour Lake and drove trucks for many years. Donnie loved working on the 18-wheelers and being outdoors. In 1997, he was involved in a car accident that hindered the lifestyle he was accustomed to. In his later years, Donnie enjoyed making the rounds day after day in his pickup truck while listening to old music like Gary Stewart and Hank Williams. In the last few days of his life he talked of Heaven and reassured us he would see us again. “For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” Philippians 1:21
Donnie is survived by his children, Jason and Melanie Norman of Round Rock, Texas; Jeff and Tonya Muckleroy of Lumberton, Texas; Chase and Karen Spencer of Hull Daisetta, Texas; and Charlie and Joy Norman of Sour Lake, Texas; and eight grandchildren.

To my Uncle Donnie, I am going to miss you more than you know. You have always been there for me when I needed you even if it was to tell me you love me. I know that you are with Mom and Uncle Ronnie watching over us all. I love you and will see you again one day my sweet uncle.
