PORTLAND — David James Norton, 45, of Portland, passed away unexpectedly Oct. 15 at Maine Medical Center, surrounded by his loving family.
He was born Sept. 28, 1967, in Farmington, the son of Hubert E. and Linda J. (French) Norton. He graduated from Mt. Abram High School and then attended USM, where he has worked ever since as a senior communications specialist.
David loved his job and the people he worked with in the University of Maine System. In his free time he enjoyed hiking, photography, camping and his annual trip to Acadia. His family was very important to him, especially his nephews, whom he adored. His parents loved his trips home to spoil them for Mother's Day and Father's Day.
David is survived by his parents, Linda and Hubert of Kingfield; his sister, Tara Dubay and her husband, Chad, of Industry; his brother, Jonathan Norton and his wife, Annette, of Brunswick; two nephews, to whom he was very close, Chad Jr. and Samuel; his Aunt Beverly; his Uncle Richard; and his cousins, Kathy, Julie, Scott and Delaney.
