LELAND — David Allen Norris went to be with his Lord and Savior in the early morning of Saturday, August 28, 2021 after his battle with pancreatic cancer. He was home and surrounded by his family.
Allen is survived by his mother, Becky Norris of Leland, brother, Jason Norris and his wife Riley of Leland, nephew, Taylor, niece, Ella, aunts, uncles, and cousins he loved so very much. He also leaves behind more friends than one can count.
Allen was proceeded in death by his father, David Norris of Leland, grandparents Silas and Frances Norris of Richlands, and Ernest and Ella Houston of Kenansville.
Allen never met a stranger and had the kindest soul anyone would ever know. To know Allen was to love him. He was an avid outdoorsman and loved animals. He was an active member of the Leland Fire Department for 25 years and it was a true passion of his.
The family would like to extend a special thank you to Allen’s best friend, Jason Thornton and his family, Leland Fire Department, Grassy Branch, Cornerstone Baptist Church, and his Hospice nurses, Jessica and Audrey.
