NORRIS, JAMES E.

Jim Norris, 86, a well-known Phoenixville area real estate broker, passed away on Friday, March 6, as a result of heart failure.

Jim founded the Century 21 Norris-Valley Forge brokerage in 1983 and was a prominent member of the Phoenixville community. Prior to founding the real estate brokerage firm, he was a corporate accountant and auditor at a number of area companies, including Aramark and Dolly Madison, Inc.

Jim was born on January 20, 1934 in Philadelphia, PA, and was the son of the late Maurice and Frances (Dillon) Norris.  He was a proud graduate of Roman Catholic High School and St. Joseph’s University and a U.S. Army veteran, having served in Germany as a saxophonist in the Army band.

Jim is survived, and will be sorely missed, by his loving wife, Suzanne, and his children, Kathleen Greenwood (Gene), Joanne Norris (Howard Steele), Lynne Norris (Brian Slater), James M. Norris (Dinae), Elizabeth Norris (Tim Buckley), Suzan Harmon (Rick) and Christopher Norris.

He is also survived by his 17 grandchildren and one great grandson and by his brothers Patrick, Maurice and Edward Norris and his sister, Elizabeth Norris.
