Norton Strong (Cory Norton)

Today we lost a true home town hero. Cory passed away this morning surrounded by his loved ones. Cory, you fought the most courageous battle all the way until the end. It gives me comfort knowing you are in a better place and are pain free! You are an inspiration to everyone who knew you and thousands you never had the chance to meet! For those of you who didn’t know Cory, he was a San Bernardino County Fire Engineer who was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, Epithelioid Sarcoma which came about after breaking his back while performing duties as a firefighter. Cory was born in raised in Big Bear. I’m not going to lie, he was a little shit growing up, but he turned out to be one hell of an amazing man, husband, father, son, brother and friend! From the day he was diagnosed Cory did everything in his power to raise money to find the cure for what ultimately took his life. Cory fought this horrible cancer for over five years and never missed a beat. Cory and his family have raised so much to help out others over the past 5 years. I hope everyone can find it in their hearts to help out Cory’s family this time, his wife Tawni and their 2 children, Cole and Tenley. They will need a lot of both financial and emotional support. Please keep this wonderful family in your thoughts and your prayers and donate if you can. All proceeds will be going directly to Tawni. GOD SPEED Cory! NORTON STRONG!
