Fort Worth


Fort Worth, Texas - Charles Henderson Norman died Saturday morning, June 18.  He was 71.

A Funeral Service will be held at 9 a.m. Thursday, June 23, in the Barnett Sanctuary at Congregation Ahavath Sholom, 4050 S. Hulen Street, with Rabbi Andrew Bloom and Hazzan Jeffrey Weber officiating.  Following committal prayers, he will be laid to rest in Ahavath Sholom Cemetery.

Born in Temple and raised in Killeen, Charles was the son of Thomas Howell and Audrey Mae Norman.  He was a lifelong Texan, apart from his time at Michigan State University, his alma mater.

Charles was a loving, caring person who was always there for his family and friends.  He was a gifted story teller who captivated audiences with well-executed jokes, stories and quips.  Those attributes made him an excellent schoolteacher, an occupation he loved doing for many years until retirement.  Charles had a great voice and excelled at impersonations, as well as recording many audio books.  He loved to read, draw, and write, and in 2016, published his own novel The Fire in the Rock: A Novel of the Exodus.  In 2011, he married Lynell Bond, the love of his life.  They enjoyed travelling, watching movies, going to the theatre, and participating in Jewish life at Congregation Ahavath Sholom.  He also loved being a Zadie to Dana and Zachary and sharing his unique sense of humor (and love of cartoons) with them.

In addition to his wife, Lynell, Charles is survived by her children, Ari Bond and Ellen, and Whitney Bond; grandchildren, Dana and Zachary Bond; sister, Anna Marie Wanesek; and brother T.H. Norman and Jan.
