Bill Norvell

William “Bill” Paul Norvell, Jr, 73, of Evans, Georgia passed away on June 16. 2023. Bill was born on August 28, 1949 in Augusta to Dr. and Mrs. William Paul Norvell (Nadine). He grew up playing baseball, football, and church league softball.

Bill graduated from Georgia Military School in 1967 and while attending Augusta College he started working for Norvell Fixture Equipment & Company for Marion Norvell, who could see the salesman he was destined to be and rose to become co-owner and President of the company. Bill loved his job and travelled frequently to visit job sites but really, he just had to see all of his customers and check in on everything. He cared deeply for those around him and we truly believed he never met a stranger.

Bill was an avid outdoorsman and enjoyed camping, cruising the lake in his ‘79 Glastron boat, fishing, deep sea fishing, and hunting. He was the life of the party and took his hobbies very seriously. Bill loved to collect things and really got into coin collecting once he had grandchildren.

Bill leaves behind his long-time love, Linda Sconyers; former wife, Susan Norvell, with whom he shares 3 daughters; Dana Norvell Caudill (Darrell); Kristy Norvell Thorstad (Brian); Tracy Norvell Rose (Lee); and his grandchildren, William and Ben Caudill; Lucy, Bain and Annabelle Thorstad; Reese and Max Rose. He is also survived by his brother, Barry Norvell (Missy) and nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his sisters Connie Stewart and Cynthia Norvell.

The funeral service will be held on Tuesday, June 20, 2023 at 2:00 P.M. at Trinity on the Hill Church with Rev. Scott Hearn officiating. Interment will follow in Westover Memorial Park. Pallbearers will be Parks Motlow, Aaron Horton, Don Brigdon, Creighton Laircey, Warren Mobley, and Don Williams. Honorary pallbearer will be Jack Glazner.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Georgia Cancer Center, 1120 15th Street, Augusta, GA 30912.

The family will receive friends Monday evening from 5:00 until 7:00 P.M. at Thomas Poteet & Son Funeral Directors, 214 Davis Rd., Augusta, GA 30907 (706) 364-8484. Please sign the guestbook at
