"I'll never forget the day that God sent an angel to me in the middle of a blizzard. My 68 Cougar was packed with snow under the hood and would not start. I was by Club 81, you couldn't see anything. Some truckers had told said I was even driving on the wrong side of the road.
Norris got out of his truck and came up to my car to try to get it started, when we were hit by a pick-up truck, that was hit by an 18 wheeler.
After the State Patrol came and spoke with us he drove me to the Roll-N-Wheel Truck Stop, that was in 1974 and the last time I ever saw him.
I will never forget the day an angel named Norris Anson saved me

"Pat and Family-
So sorry for your loss! We really enjoyed getting to know Norris. He was funny and could always make us laugh! His personality was inspiring and we will really miss him. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers. We really wanted to attend the wake or funeral but both of us were unable to attend since we had to work. Deepest sympathy.
